WMF is pleased to announce the first day of a matching gift challenge 
from a friend of the Foundation who wishes to remain anonymous.  During 
this time, our friend will donate up to $60,000 per day to match the 
gifts made by the community to WMF.  This has the effect of doubling the 
amount of each gift.  Gifts made via Paypal and Moneybookers as well as 
donations received in the WMF office during the matching period will 
count against the total. 

A new sitenotice is being rolled out to call attention to this 
unprecedented generosity from our friend.  We sincerely appreciate our 
anonymous donor's decision to provide for the Foundation in this way.

It is our sincere hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity 
to leverage your donation to support the Foundation.
