Dear OpenStreetMap mapper: We are the small non-profit that runs the #6741 website in the world (#1,824 in Germany). We don't have any staff but serve 1 billion map tiles every eleven days, and have costs like any other top site: dragons, power, rent, programs, trolls and legal help. OpenStreetMap is something special. It is like a sensory garden or a learning circle. It is like a temple for cartographers. It is a place we can all go to map and navigate our way through life. To protect our independence, we'll never run ads. We take no prisoners. We run on donations averaging about £30. If everyone reading this gave the price of a cheap tourist map, our fundraiser would be done within an hour. If OpenStreetMap is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to mapping. Thank you.
Please help - I'm addicted to OpenStreetMap and couldn't map without it
