Donate to Wikipedia and Feel Connected

Give a buck or rial to preserve Wikipedia. If anything, the real time Donor's Comments Page is a joy to behold! It made me feel good and provided a few good laughs, too.

"I'm giving $35 to Wikipedia, because I've paid more for less content..."
"Safe when used as directed"
"Here's $10. I'm too cheap to donate more."
"I am sure every penny helps, so here are 3500 of them."

Of course, most donors are very serious and their comments are very touching:
My two favorites are:

I'm proud to support an organization whose goal is to improve our world.
Wikipedia is perhaps the ultimate realization of the promise of the Internet.
