Time is running out in 2016 to help Wikipedia. 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. To protect our independence, we'll never run ads. We're sustained by donations averaging about $15. Now is the time we ask. If everyone reading this right now gave $3, we wouldn’t need to fundraise for years to come. The price of a coffee is all we need. It’s easy to ignore this message; most people do. But I hope you’ll think about how useful Wikipedia is in your life. We’re here to give you reliable, neutral information in a world where fake news spreads too easily. Please help keep Wikipedia online and growing. Thank you — Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia Founder
