OpenWrt Donation Campaign

Hi Pono,

as a general thing to improve visibility of ways to donate I'd like to 
add a donation link on GitHub, where people see these "Sponsor" buttons.

Currently there's no shareable URL for donations, looking at the SFCs 
project page[1] I can click the yellow "Donate" button, however it 
forwards me to a cryptic token. This URL can't be shared.  Could you 
please provide a shareable URL which can be added to both GitHub and itself?

Kind regards,

OpenWrt paid for the venue, attendees paid for their lodging and meals. I would guess that it cost 3 000 € for that conference. (Others - please correct my guesstimate)
