let's help Wikipedia

great source of information on composers, churches, organs, and other relevant topics for us HW users; we hate to see them go under.

apparently they are needing some extra funds to keep operating without advertisement.

I have donated because I use it all the time.
I’ve also donated to IMSLP and to Contrebombarde.

Same here. I have donated twice and use Wikipedia regularly. What did we do without it?

What did we do without it?

... We used books and dictionnaries, we went to libraries, and met masters !
It was slower, but more human, and stayed longer in our memory.
(sorry don't want to be unpleasant... just a reflexion about "progress" )
Wikipedia is not the perfect tool.
As exemple kids and teens in school make a lot of "copy / paste" from wiki articles,
even without reading what they copy, and they think that they are working or learning this way ...
Saying that, I made donation anyway, to help to keep it trustworthy .

ISMLP and CONTREBOMBARDE deserve donations too !
