My apologies for being so slow to respond; I was on my honeymoon. I
agree with Aron's comments fully. I would like to see a better defined
description of how store sales translate into funds for the foundation,
but as long as it's well defined I don't really care if the foundation
gets $x / cd or even 0$, as long as we know what it is so that the
foundation can attempt some sort of financial planning.
