Wikimedia fundraising drive surpasses goal

With the addition of over USD $30,000 from Wikimedia Deutschland, the Wikimedia fundraising drive surpassed its mammoth $200,000 goal, with four days to spare.

While a decline in donations was noticed over the past week, with relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina in the spotlight, donations still came pouring in from all over the world. Many donors left encouraging comments, like "[to] help on the quest to create the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and "This is probably one of the best things the internet has created."

The fundraising drive started on 19 August, and is scheduled to run through 9 September. The drive aims to pay for the significant server costs, which have risen dramatically recently.
