It's ALWAYS a matter of price!
If you really think you can use their domains better than them, therefore making more money out of them, you can definetely buy them. That's in theory though.
In practice, although I don't think they're amateurs, they might ask too much either for you or for anybody, and want to lose domains only for a ridiculous price.
If it's priced very low, beware, there is probably some kind of catch. This is in practice.
In simple words I doubt very much that a deal can be made with them, but it's free to try. Of course just asking for a domain adds value to it...

I admire your ideal(s), but domain names are not about causes but simply commodities. Last time I checked, we're still living in capitalism. I never like it, but that's the truth.
One thing you might be interested: starting about a year ago, Ultsearch has begun to let expired a relatively large quantity of *quality* domains that might be of interest to many others. You may keep an eye on the expiry dates of their names. There are actually people selling such compiled lists, just look around. Good luck.
