I am from Russia. I work as a scientist. And I spend several hours most days improving articles on Wikipedia.
Maybe none of those three things are true about you. But, we still have something important and powerful in common.
We’re part of the Wikipedia community—people of different nationalities, religions, ages, and genders working together for the common purpose of freely sharing knowledge.
So, whatever is true about your personal experience of Wikipedia, I’m hoping you’ll act to keep our remarkable community growing and thriving by donating to our annual fundraising campaign.
Wikipedia is the 5th most popular website in the world and the only one of those top sites that doesn’t display a single ad. That helps keep Wikipedia independent. You and I never have to worry about an advertiser influencing the content of Wikipedia. But, once each year, we do have to think about helping sustain this valuable resource with individual donations.
I hope you’ll choose this moment to make your personal donation of $20, $35, $50 or whatever you can to keep Wikipedia free.
