Economically supporting fre software


I wish there was some easier way to donate money to FOSS projects I like to use. Now, I could go to linuxmint, donate some money there, then to Gimp, then to Gnome, and so on. But it would be very handy to be able to do something like this from one place, like the Linux Foundation.

Say I want to donate some money to different FOSS projects, it would be really handy to be able to do something like this:

[$25] KDE
[$50] Mint
[$10] Gimp
[___] ( V add more)
*10% goes to Linux Foundation

[_] I want to make this a monthly donation

Choose payment method [VISA] [Paypal]

(Edit your monthly donation.)

Is this something that would be way to hard to implement because of the effort, many small projects, and where to set a "cut" to who is allowed to be on such a list, etc.?
