I plan to block advertising. How much to donate in lieu of advertising?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The amount of a donation is entirely at the discretion of the donor
From the official documentation it is clear that every little helps

I know every little bit helps. That does not answer my question. Maybe I can only give a tiny bit, or maybe mega bucks. How much money would make up for a years worth of not watching ads? How much for each visit?

What ads? I use Google Chrome with ABP and see no ads. I have donated some to the project as it is a great alternative to Windows and I hate Win 8.

I don't use Chrome.

What is ABP? an ad blocker? Does chrome show ads out of the box and you use ABP to block them?

ABP is Adblock Plus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adblock_Plus). Yes, it's an ad blocker and it's available for firefox too.
