FAQ: use "Tildes" for the charity question

So in the end, a bunch of technical, historical, and associational reasons convinced me that I definitely wanted to use the tilde symbol. From there, it didn't take much until the symbol of the site turned into the actual name.
## Why isn't Spectria a charity?
## Why is Tildes a non-profit and not a charity?
Canada only grants charity status to [organizations with certain purposes](https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/charities-giving/giving-charity-information-donors/about-registered-charities/what-difference-between-a-registered-charity-a-non-profit-organization.html). Generally, the organization has to be devoted to relieving poverty, advancing religion or education, or the benefit of the (local, real-life) community. These are quite restricted definitions—note that [Wikimedia Canada](https://ca.wikimedia.org/wiki/About_us) (the Canadian branch of the organization behind Wikipedia) is also a non-profit and not a charity. If even building Wikipedia doesn't seem to qualify as "advancing education", I don't think there's any chance that Tildes will.
