This is what you get when you donate to Wikipedia

I donated one USD to Wikipedia a few days ago. It really made me feel worthy :)
This is the body of the email they sent me, I am adding only two CRs [carriage returns] just for the blog to look better:

Dear Angie,

Thank you for your gift of USD 1.00 to the Wikimedia Foundation, received on October 20, 2010. 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 380 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 about fifty, 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
