Just donated £50 to Wikipedia

Similar to what I did last year (see Improved Wikipedia funding page, why OWASP needs something similar, and who buys OWASP Corporate Memberships  and Lovely 'post help' email from Wikipedia) I just helped keeping Wikipedia open and independent.

I really like their 'please help us' text:

.... where I was able to chose the option I wanted (in this case £50):

... enter the payment details and leave a nice message for them:

... and receive a nice thank you message from Wikipedia :)

I think it is really important for Wikipedia to have an independent source of funding, specially one that is connected to its users (for example me).
