    Very cool, but what an unusual amount. I bet Britannica couldn't get this kind of support.

    Virgin Unite, the charitable arm of Virgin companies (Virgin Mobile, Airlines, Records, etc) is currently matching all donations to Wikipedia. Maybe Richard Branson donated it.

    My guess, they needed a tax write off for that amount.
