November’s Donation – The Wikimedia Foundation

If I can only say one sentence about the Wikimedia Foundation It would be The Wikimedia Foundation puts Freedom and convenience over profit. Why is that important you ask?  Its because the freedom of code, information, and data helps the world as a whole go further. The Wikimedia foundation built the largest collection for Free and Open information and data and it is important to keep it open and easily accessible for everyone no matter who they are or where there from.  When you go on their website the first thing you will see is these words “Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.” That statement right there is why I chose them to receive my donation. The Wikimedia  Foundation made more than Wikipedia. Here are the rest of their projects: Wikitonary, Wikiquote, Wikibooks, WIkisource, Wikinews, Wikiversity, Wikispecies, Mediawiki, Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, and Wikivoyage. Most, if not all of the articles, images, and data are licensed under a Creative Commons or other permissive copyright license. Or they are in the public domain. The Wikimedia Foundation is incredibly important and without them the internet would be a much worse place and our research projects will be many times more difficult. Wombathaven sincerely thanks you for all of your hard work and we hope to see your collection of information and projects continue to grow and change the lives of millions around the world for the better.
