Thanks again for your help!

If you can get a clarification from G adSense..then you will be lucky. I rather doubt it though..You are not likely to get a straight reply from G , and I would be very wary of following this approach.
In general, I wouldn't mix donation requests with income-earning ads or affiliate links. Pick one approach of the other. It looks better.
That won't work. I saw someone in SF once with a sign: "Give me the money to buy drugs"
Will that violate AdSense TOS?
> This seems to be a borderline case of soliciting clicks..If in doubt...Don't ..
He isn't soliciting clicks. he is asking for donation and not through Google but through PayPal. I humbly think that you are reading too much into Google's intent.
You have to ask yourself, is a site who's business model is begging for donations, is that a good audience for Adsense, who are looking for visitors in the market to click on ads and convert for their advertisers? The way you get those kind of visitors is post original, informative content. Concentrate on that, and the beer money will come without you having to beg for it.
> Actually, Adsense doesn't really even have to follow their own TOS. If they simply don't like your business model, they can and very well might ban you from Adsense.
Have you ever heard Google banning anyone for begging?
I doubt it they ever will. It is a legitimate way to earn money. I say go for it.
