Wikipedia thanked me!

Well, they really did! I donated a meagre Rs.500 to their fund-raiser :-)

It was in 2009 that I last noticed their request for donations. That time you had to see Jimmy Wale's face on top of every Wikipedia article. I had donated $10 then. This time, there's no photo, just a yellow banner on top of the article pages.

One interesting thing was that the donation amounts were specified in INR rather than USD. I really liked that and perhaps that gave the extra push for clicking the donate button.
