Um, I don't understand.

Debian itself is not able to own assets.  Are you appointing Paypal as
a TO ?

In fact that web page already says that

 | Debian is able to accept direct equipment donations

Does that mean that you as DPL are decreeing that Debian is accepting
ownership of hardware ?  That is contrary to the Debian constitution
and probably unlawful (depending on the jurisdiction).

 | Any donations for the Debian Project must be made to any one of a
 | set of organisations designated by the Project leader (or a
 | delegate) to be authorized to handle assets to be used for the
 | Debian Project.

>From 9.3.  Note that it says `any donations' and `assets', and is not
limited to money.
