This is great! While the headline uses the absolute dollar amount
to attract eyes and look big, I am more impressed by the list of
results in the article. Previous awards from Mozilla have led
directly to improvements in Tor, Python documentation, Kea DHCP,
and security audits of NTP services.As someone who donates a small
amount to Mozilla monthly, this makes me feel good about my choice.

They have also contributed a lot to Django

The headline doesn't mention "dollars" at all.

Not even implicitly?

That's true. If we are being pedantic, though, it does mention
an amount ("half a million"), which turns out to be the number
of dollars they awarded ($539,000). So I will stand by
statement that the headline mentions the "dollar amount." :-)
