If we do this, I think we should start just by recognizing everyone
who doesn't mind, all on the same level, for giving what they could
(regardless of amount). But there's still the problem of determining
if they mind (without me writing each one and asking, which could get
unwieldy if lots of people donate).

Sounds tricky, especially when I don't often know where people live
when they donate (not always captured info through PayPal). Perhaps
just getting up a page of recognition is all we need in the short

Just recognizing people with a cube is all we need now. Differently
colored/distinguished cubes could be a good idea for the future,
after we have more data to work with.
