Day 245, £830 donated so far

It’s fair to say Wikipedia is my go to reference whenever I need to check some information. I can easily spend hours clicking through the hyperlinks from one page to the next until I invariably land on one of the more obscure pages and realise I’ve gone too far.

Wikipedia relies solely on donations from readers. It doesn’t run any ads on the website nor does it claim to sell data from its readers. Today when I received an email from Wikipedia referring to me as a “longstanding valued donor” for my £10 donation from three years ago, I realised how much I take this free resource for granted.

I have donated £35 to the charitable arm Wikimedia Foundation. I now feel no shame in spending the rest of my evening using Wikipedia to learn more about the work of this charity.
