Do you donated for something good that was for free?

We all know that some apps are totally for free. But sometimes there is a option to donate to the developer of this app. This is a way to show your support and appreciation towards the developers.

Personally I think this is one of the greatest funding systems of all. Since the user decides what to pay for it. So you never pay to much and you will never be disappointed.

The downside of this funding system is that the developer is taking a huge risk. This has two reasons:
- The developer has no kickstart funding.
- The developer is not sure of any profit (this is up to the users).

My question to you is:
Have you ever donated to some free development?
And how do you feel about donating in opposite to kickstart-funding or pay after trial?
