Do Luv em! FF

Dear Firefox & You subscriber,

From the very beginning, Mozilla was built to be a movement, not a company.

We've always felt people should be in control of their online lives, not kept in the dark. We want the tools we build — like Firefox — to respect people, to care about their security and to protect their privacy.

That's why I chose to make Mozilla a non-profit. An open, accessible Web matters more than maximizing shareholder value.

The idea of putting people before profit is a powerful one. There are thousands of Mozilla volunteers and staff around the world who believe deeply in our mission and values. We are all building an Internet that puts the public good over profit. 

But we can't do this important work without the support of people like you. This is the only email we will send to you this year asking for a donation to support our work. Make your online gift to Mozilla right now.

Parts of the Internet will always be built by large companies. And that's good. That economic engine brings a lot of skill, energy and resources to bear, but it's not enough. 

We must also build the Web the world needs — an Internet where people come first. Whether it's profitable or not, it's the right thing to do.

What we've accomplished so far has been possible because tens of thousands around the world have joined and supported Mozilla. Just knowing that so many people share our vision and our commitment to users is both humbling and empowering. We would like to count you in.

I'm only sending one single email about the Mozilla Year-End Fundraising Campaign. That means you have just one chance to make a donation to support our important work.

The heart of Mozilla is a global community with a shared mission. That's what gives us power. That's what gives us impact. That's what makes us different — people like you who help us build the Internet the world needs.
