  刚通过PayPal向Wikipedia捐款$100,这是我连续第4年向维基百科捐款了,只是因为支持维基百科倡导的知识分享理念,希望这种带有理想主义色彩的网站能永续发展。现在国内物价飞涨,美元贬值,100美元只能请几个人吃餐饭,不如为大众提供点精神食粮,捐的人多了自然力量就大。

  补充:从去年底开始我们已经没有使用Wikipedia所用的MediaWiki软件来搭建新网站了,后来改用Drupal平台,不过对Wikipedia的支持不会改变。今年以来我们网站的AdSense收入连创新高,又通过PayPal收了一些国外购买名录数据的钱,捐点款还是很方便的。

  附来自维基基金会的感谢邮件:

Dear JINGSONG,

Thank you for your gift of USD 100.00 to the Wikimedia Foundation, received on 2011-11-14. I’m very grateful for your support.

Your donation celebrates everything Wikipedia stands for: the power of information to help people live better lives, and the importance of sharing, freedom, learning and discovery. Thank you so much for helping to keep Wikipedia freely available for its 364 million readers around the world.

These funds support technology and people. The Wikimedia Foundation develops and improves the technology behind Wikipedia, and sustains the infrastructure that keeps it up and running. The foundation has a staff of less then a hundred, which provides technical, administrative, legal and outreach support for the global community of volunteers who write and edit Wikipedia.

Many people love Wikipedia, but a surprising number don't know it's run by a non-profit. Please help us spread the word by telling a few of your friends.

And again, thank you for supporting free knowledge.

Sincerely Yours,

Sue Gardner
Executive Director

喜欢维基百科、认同其理念就好,是否捐款、捐款多少都是其次的,根据各人自己情况而定。另外还可以参与其编辑也是对维基百科很好的支持,这点上我做得不好,时间不够,编辑得很少。
