Hey all,

I thought I would let you know something cool. We have just received
our first donation! :)

I received a couple of emails to our contact address about how to
donate or if donations to us were tax deductible. (For the record they
are NOT.) I think it is people coming via the WMF fundraiser

It surprises me pretty well because if you go through how many clicks
you have to do to actually get to the WMAU website, it's really not a
trivial thing at all.

So I set up a page <http://wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Donate> that will
hopefully better funnel these hardy link-followers towards our
coffers, since they are so keen. :)

Anyway... how exciting is that! We are the lucky recipients of amazing
goodwill towards Wikipedia. Let us take that and then earn some more
in our own right as well.


They've just been waiting in a mountain for the right moment:
