Yes and that's the problem with *donating* is that you never get the item back, which you would do with a loan - if the terms are kept to.
I've no issue loaning it for up to a year or so, but I'd want the item back - unless it was a piece of hardware I could manage/get along without, but currently I don't have that much stuff I can just do that with, or do without.
It's not fair asking users, as a general request to donate, to offer up a piece of hardware that may have cost £40... or a lot more, so you can keep it, and in any case may not even be able to use it to fix the issue that there is with any hardware related piece of the OS.
