Not Again? Really? Wikipedia?

I cannot believe it. Wikipedia is again asking begging for donations to stay afloat.

Dear readers,

We’ll get right to it: Today we ask you to help Wikipedia. To protect our independence, we’ll never run ads. We’re sustained by donations averaging about $15. Only a tiny portion of our readers give. Now is the time we ask. If everyone reading this right now gave $3, our fundraiser would be done within an hour. That’s right, the price of a cup of coffee is all we need. If Wikipedia is useful to you, please take one minute to keep it online and ad-free. We’re a small non-profit with costs of a top website: servers, staff and programs. We serve millions of readers, but we run on a fraction of what other top sites spend. Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park where we can all go to learn. Wikipedia is written by a community of volunteers with a passion for sharing the world’s knowledge. Please help us end the fundraiser and get back to improving Wikipedia. Thank you.

Don’t thank me. I am sick of giving. Last time your goal was fifteen million dollars.
