For those of you who have been here from the beginning, you may remember that tvclubhouse.com was hosted for free for several years by Jimmy Wales, owner of Wikipedia.

Well, now, Wikipedia needs our support. If you are so inclined, please feel free to donate here:

https://donate.wikimedia.org

At every turn, we have been pressured to compromise our values, and I'll be honest: We've had enough. People always ask us, why not just run ads to make revenue? Or capture and sell reader data? Or make everyone pay to read? While these things seem like the norm online nowadays, we'd like to remind you that there is another way -- a way that won't jeopardize the neutrality of our content and threaten your personal data. We just ... ask! Not often, but it works. So after two decades of saying no, I can still say we are proud to have left that money on the table.

We’re a nonprofit. Only 2% of our readers give, but we manage to serve hundreds of millions of people per month. Imagine if everyone gave? We could transform the way knowledge is shared online.

Every year, I’m happily stunned by the response from our donors. But we haven’t reached our fundraising goal, and we don’t have a lot of time left. We’re not salespeople. We’re librarians, archivists, and information junkies. We rely on our readers to become our donors, and it’s worked for 19 years.

Thanks for the reminder, Karuuna. I used the link you provided to donate and then I donated a similar amount to TVCH. Where oh where would we be without Wikipedia and TVCH? May they both exist into infinity!
