Donating Money to Wikipedia


This was the first time I have ever donated money to Wikipedia. Though it was a small one but I felt really good about it. While talking to one of my friends I got to know how he donate money to the podcast he listens to and how good he feels after each donation.

I barely knew anyone in my personal life who ever donated money to these online organizations and I always assumed that there are plenty of people taking care of such organizations. But if they are asking for donations there must be a reason for it and it’s worth finding.

Imagine if Wikipedia started to charge us like every other encyclopedia before it. Things won’t be that easy if that would be the case. We no longer could say to our younger ones that knowledge is free and it would be a horrible future.

This article was to let you know that common person like us should also take part in such donation.
