Jimmy Wales, fondatorul Wikipedia cere ajutorul financiar al utilizatorilor:
Today I am going to ask you to support Wikipedia with a donation. This might sound unusual: Why does one of the world’s five most popular web properties ask for financial support from its users?
(…)We have a small number of paid staff, just twenty-three. Wikipedia content is free to use by anyone for any purpose. Our annual expenses are less than six million dollars.

I invite you to join us: Your donation will help keep Wikipedia free for the whole world.
