"Dear yWorks team,
As you would know, I have been a user of yEd for many years now. Through me, I have propagated yEd as a diagramming tool across all the organizations that I consult with. My own team uses yEd extensively as well. I write this email to thank the wonderful developers of this incredible tool. Like me, you have empowered the lives of thousands of professionals across the globe, for free, and without expectation of rewards. This is an unbelievable act of kindness.
yEd remains one of the most fascinating tools I and my team members have ever used. My salutes to each one of you.
Best wishes and God Bless."

Just wanted to say Thank you! for the application yED that you guys made... It's great... I looked and couldn't find a flowchart that I really liked -- then found yours and love it :)... I didn't see a donate button in the "About" area, so figured I'd at least reach out and say thank you for a job very well done...
It's amazing how much easier your flowchart works than anyone else's out there..."
Best to you
