I think they might have gotten to help pick the design schemes available on the faces of the cards though. Maybe if Gen Con had offered to let them help decorate they would have taken the donation. Sure.
Who's to say what they buy with that card too? A person with that card could very well be buying DnD books. The card leaves it a lot more open ended than the straight money donation from DnD books. Why deny donations from DnD stuff and accept donations from a source that you have no idea where it came from?
