My name is Liam Wyatt and I'm a Wikipedia contributor from Sydney, Australia. I'm here to help give everyone on the planet free access to the sum of all human knowledge.
Over 400 million people use Wikipedia. We’re working to not only spread it further, but to improve its content. This summer I volunteered with the British Museum as their “Wikipedian in Residence” to make their historical and cultural information available to the public.
This work depends on more than just volunteers and forward-thinking museums. It takes technology strong enough to reliably deliver it to nearly a half billion people. This technology is operated and maintained by the Wikimedia Foundation, a non-profit supported by donations from the readers of Wikipedia. Not ads. You.
Wikipedia is your encyclopedia. You write it, you rely on it, you improve it with your contributions, your money supports it. There’s nothing else like it in the world, and you are part of it.
If you read Wikipedia, if you rely on it, if you appreciate what volunteers like myself have worked hard to create over the last decade, please make a donation right now to support this work and this vision of a world with shared, free and open access to knowledge.
It’s an amazing thing, and your donation makes it happen.
