Dear readers in Argentina:We will get straight to the point:
Today we ask you to help Wikipedia.
To maintain our independence,
we will never run ads. We depend on donations averaging about 100 ARS. Only a tiny portion of our readers give. If everyone who reads this donated30 ARS, our campaign would be completed within an hour. When I made Wikipedia a non-profit, people warned me I’d regret it. Over a decade later, it’s the only top ten site run by a non-profit and a community of volunteers. Has it crossed my mind how much we could have made if it had ads? Sure. But it wouldn’t be the same. We wouldn’t be able to trust it. Most people ignore my messages. But I hope you’ll think about how useful it is to have unlimited access to reliable, neutral information. Please help keep Wikipedia online and ad-free. Thank you — Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia Founder
