Care is giving in different ways.

For an existing product it's more likely that people are willing to 
spend time to it. If you use TYPO3 CMS as a developer for your projects 
and you encounter a bug or you want a new feature it's actually likely 
that you make the effort of creating a patch and submitting that.
Existing products can be maintained and developed further by a community.
Care is given by the T3A by supporting and facilitating things for these 
contributors. The T3A makes it possible for me to go to Core Team 
meetings or code sprints. I do the coding in my spare time and by 
reimbursing the costs of travelling and hotel I can actually go to these 

For Flow/Neos the situation was different. There was no usable product 
and thus it was very unlikely that community members would contribute to 
that. Now that Flow is used more in projects people start contributing 
and once Neos is used in projects people will contribute code to that 
project too.
