Wikipedia Needs Help

Just this day, i found this campaign of about gathering donations from people who uses this kind of technology. They offered us free and wide variety of information since 2001 and now they need to get back the expenses they've thrown for the continuity of the service.


This campaign already gathered 0.6M USD as of November 17, 2009 @ 4:50 PM Philippines Time.
I don't really know why is it that wikipedia needs 7.5 M USD. It was a huge amount of money that will just keep their servers running. Is it the plan of wikipedia since then? Is it their strategy to gather money?

Their financial report is available here
