Help wikipedia

Wikipedia_help Jimmy Wales is asking Wikipedia’s users & readers to support the site 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?

Wikipedia is built differently from almost every other top 50 website. Only 23 people are on its paid staff. Wikipedia content is free to use by anyone for any purpose. Its annual expenses are less than six million dollars, and it is run by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation.

Over almost eight years, these volunteers have contributed more than 11 million articles in 265 languages. More than 275 million people visit the website every month to access information, free of charge and free of advertising.
