RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $6000Goal: $6000

But we're not sure
Who's asking?

Stuart Landsborough is a New Zealand born skeptic who started the New Zealand Psychic Challenge. Stuart Landsborough buried $50,000 worth of New Zealand promissory notes within 5km of the Puzzling World Theme Park he built and offered it to any psychic who could find it. After six months he made it easier by burying the notes within a 200 metre radius. Four people (seven, according to Wikipedia) have tried and failed to find the loot.

In 2006 the money was moved again, to within 100 metres of his premises, and he upped the ante by another $50,000 -- however, no "true psychic" would accept the challenge for money despite Landsborough saying he would donate the money to a charity of the psychic's choice.
