Subject: [MoveCom] You are invited to a global virtual celebration for
Wikipedia’s 20th birthday!
As many of you know, Wikipedia is celebrating a big milestone next month
with the 20th birthday on January 15th, 2021. In honor of the birthday, we
will be hosting a virtual birthday party for the global communities on
January 15th from 4-5 pm UTC (check out your local time )! Please join
us on a Youtube livestream  where we will celebrate all of the
volunteers and community members who have built this movement over the last
This celebration will include remarks from community members about how they
have seen the movement grow over the 20 years and their wishes for the
future, as well as from Jimmy Wales and Katherine Maher.
We’d also love to hear from all of you! This celebration is a chance for us
to come together and to recognize the people behind our projects that make
this all possible. We’ll be highlighting community milestones and
achievements over the past year. Tell us what you’ve been working on, and
big moments you’d like to call out from the past year! You can share
details on the Meta page for the 20th virtual birthday party  and we’ll
include those during the virtual event. We’ll also be sharing more details
soon about other ways to participate.
This virtual birthday party is just one of many activities that are being
planned around the movement for the 20th birthday. You can check out the
Wikipedia 20 birthday hub  to learn more about local and regional
events, birthday images, media activities and other resources for community
