From anonymized statistics on our website we know that Tails is used by around 18 000 people every day. **If each of them gave 12€, the price of a USB stick, our budget for the whole year would be raised within one day.** As you can see, funding Tails through donations is a realistic and our budget ridiculously small compared to the multibillionaire companies and agencies running the surveillance business.
But many of our users could actually get in trouble if they donated to an anti-surveillance tool like Tails. So when donating to Tails you are also [[helping all of these people|news/who_are_you_helping]] by keeping Tails alive. Please consider setting up a yearly or monthly donation.
