Wikipedia fundraiser breaks the $6mm USD mark!

Translate This Post

We’re extremely pleased to be sharing the news that the 5th annual Wikimedia on-line fundraising campaign in support of Wikipedia and our sister projects has burst past its $6million USD goal.  Today we issued a press release, and later today we should have some further correspondence to share.
We will aslo be rotating the site banners on Wikipedia and the other projects later today to point to a new thank you note from Jimmy Wales.
This is a great day for Wikipedia, and for the more than 125,000 supports of the project.  You’ve helped us raise over $6.2million – and we’re still seeing donations come in.  Thank you for showing extraordinary support, and for helping to sustain and grow Wikipedia.
Happy New Year!  What a great way to kick it off.

This is great news. Someday wikipedia will be a place where anyone can find information on anything, anywhere, anytime.

Wiki win..

That’s great news. I think the U.N. should support Wikipedia, it would be pocket change for them and every country/ everyone benefits from wikipedia.

thats a nice idea (the part with the U.N.) but there are still too many opponents of wikipedia who think that a lot of the information is wrong =(
