The Foundation pays for the servers, the bandwidth the software development and the outreach that make it the centre of the Wiki movement. When you consider why you should contribute to the Wikimedia Foundation, it is always good to look at what it did for us last year.
- the Wikipedia traffic has continued to grow with 9% on an annual basis
- some of the smaller Wikipedias grow annually with more then 100%
- new languages have been added and they are lively
- we are experiencing the first benefits of the Usability Initiative
- the Commons usability project is starting its work in order to realise its potential
The Wikimedia Foundation enables its projects to do good and, it needs your appreciation to ensure that we continue to do good in 2010.
