From an outsider looking in...

Hello, I am a web developer, but the fact that I work on "computers" is the only thing that we have in common. Your work here is phenomenal and I am simply letting you know I think so. I wrote a brief article recently (I'll post the link at the bottom of this comment) discussing the nature of Israeli innovation, it's not a "ra ra" article about Israel, but more an exploration on the nature of innovation itself.

Then, I recently read that Tel Aviv University received a $5 million dollar donation from Len Blavatnik through the American Friends of Tel Aviv University, and that this donation alone will allow them to double their scholarships.

So, in the efforts to help raise even more money, I am trying to make relationships with folks like you, the people who are doing the important work. I don't know if donors can understand the importance of the work by reading your article, but I'd like to at least attempt to make that connection.
