Based on a message tagged to the Wikipedia website
Today, I visited Wikipedia and learned that today happens to be a fund raiser day for them. I am sure, like me, many people from different walks of life do visit Wikipedia once a while and get the relevant information fast. In today's message tagged to their website, the following message (relevant texts) is reproduced below:
Dear Wikipedia readers, We (Wikipedia) are the small non profit that runs the No.5 website in the world. We have only 150 staff but serve 450 million users and have costs like any other top website like servers, power, rent, staff and so on. Wikepedia is something special - it is like a library or a public park. It is like a temple for the mind a place we can all go to think and learn. To protect our independence, we will never run ads. We take no Government funds. We run on donations averaging about Rs.1500. If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be done within an hour. "
Basing the above, generous people (readers) can help the above website which undoubtedly is helpful to so many of us in so many ways!!!!
