It sounds kind of strange to have a post with the title Wikipedia, but I am sure most of you will understand why I am doing this. Last year and 2 years ago I have press that small button on the top of the page, which appears only in special months of the year. This year I have decided to do it again. I will quote an old email I have received from them:
Like the retired farmer in upstate New York who’s using Wikipedia to study the science of sludge, and the student in Kuala Lumpur who’s researching organic chemistry. The British mechanic who, after he broke his back in an accident, used Wikipedia to retrain himself as a web developer. The civil servant in Finland who set up an offline version of Wikipedia for a small school in Ghana. And the father in Mexico City who takes his little daughters to the museum on weekends, and uses Wikipedia to help them understand everything they’re seeing there.
I believe that so many people use it all around the world, that it seems fair that at least once a year to give something small (the price of one cup of coffee). Obviously, no one is forced to do so, but if you believe it is worth it, if you believe that Wikipedia helped you with anything and you can afford it then do it. They are doing their best and I consider it is important to maintain Wikipedia free for everyone and without advertising.
If you think this is a good cause, make your donation here: Wikimedia Foundation.
Hope you enjoyed this small post. Have a wonderful weekend. Thank you for your help and support. You can find me on Facebook, Tumblr, Google+, Twitter,Instagram and Lettrs, I will try to post there as often as possible. Don’t forget that maths is everywhere! Enjoy!
