Our first quarter 2005 fund drive officially started at midnight UTC Friday
On Day 0 (Thursday eastern US timezone since PayPal data are not available in
UTC) we made $1,023.19 (USD) through PayPal (other sources unknown). As of
right now we have generated a total of $7,043.80 in the fund drive (PayPal
only; other sources unknown), so Day 1 looks like it will be big.
Some choice comments from Day 0:

"I have learned so much from this site. I used to be frustrated because I
couldn't read about things on sites like Encarta, but now I can and it's all
here." by Anonymous
"I absolutely love Wikipedia, I have never donated to anything before but I
gladly do to this!" by Anonymous
