If you’ve ever wondered who the people behind the Wikipedia articles are, look no further than the ‘Impact of Wikipedia’ get-to-know-them video. The video explores the people around the world who have incredibly varied interests and contribute to Wikipedia.

As part of its fundraising effort, the volunteer-based organization has put out a video to explain what it does, why it does it and how much it loves it. Wikipedia is a crowd-sourced initiative on the web that has acted as a guide to basic understandings on a lot of topics. The online web source has been the savior to many an essay, work assignment and conversation starter.

In the short and incredibly interesting video, these Wikipedia volunteers give insight to the organization and tell their stories.
