Wikipedia Gets $20M in Annual Fundraising

Yay! Wikipedia raised $20M during its annual donation drive. No more banner ads with Jimmy Wales on them...for at least another 9 months. wink

More than 1 million people throughout the world contributed the money during a 46-day fundraising drive, which concluded Sunday. The amount pledged to the Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit group that oversees the volunteer-driven Wikipedia, is a third more than the $15 million donated during the previous year's fundraising campaign.
