Congrats to all for this successful fundraising!

I am still observing a widespread confusion between wikipedia and
wikimedia.  The confusion is not problematic /per se/, but I guess
it can be with respect to what each chapter does for the projects.
It is by far not easy to fix this problem, but I hope it's on the 
to-do list for 2012!
