Submission + - Wikipedia fundraiser starts tomorrow, with a twist

David Still writes: Starting on December 15 and for the next four weeks, the Wikimedia Foundation will be holding a fundraiser to cover the costs of Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikinews, and other projects run by the non-profit organisation. Unlike previous fundraisers (the most recent of which raised nearly US$400,000 in December 2005) this one will feature matched gifts sponsored by a number of companies. This would mean that the total donations for specific days of the drive would potentially be doubled by the additional sponsorship of numerous companies.

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
