When we asked you to donate to our end of year campaign, I knew we'd be able to count on supporters like you to come through but we've been absolutely blown away. You were one of 381,713 people from more than 170 countries who donated $3.2 million USD to Mozilla. That's more than double the amount we raised last year!
I want to personally thank you for standing up to protect the open Web. Your support gives us the resources we need to continue our work in 2015 and beyond.
We're excited about our plans for the coming year. The net neutrality fight in the U.S. is heating up and the world is watching the outcome. You'll hear more about how you can participate soon, but a handful of companies are doing everything in their power to weaken net neutrality protections. We're taking action in the coming weeks to make sure that doesn't happen. We're not backing down now. Our goal: To protect net neutrality for future generations. Thanks to you, we've got the resources we need to do it.
A decade ago, against all odds, Mozilla shook the foundation of a huge empire and changed what was possible with the Web. This was magnetic. I joined Mozilla to be a part of that legacy — to keep working to protect the open principles of the Internet.
Without people like you and me to protect it, the power of the Internet could fall into the wrong hands. A few goliath companies are becoming empires that control both what is possible and what is imaginable on the Web. Together, we're taking on these empires, and winning.
And, thanks to your support, we have the resources we need to keep standing up for a free and open Web.
Thank you again,
Mark Surman Executive Director
