I need to thank you.

Here is a message of hope for you as we look back on 2018 -- and ahead to 2019.

On this Giving Tuesday, there's hope for all of us.

Dear Friend,

Thank you.

I took a moment to pause and reflect on 2018 today. It's not been an easy year. But as I started to dwell on the hard parts of the year, I stopped myself. Yes, in a lot of ways 2018 has been a hard year. But for every difficult thing that happened this year I was able to think of a reason to feel hopeful. When I looked back at all those reasons, they had one thing in common.


You — tens of thousands of you stood up in the fight to protect net neutrality. We faced a setback with the vote to effectively end net neutrality in the United States, but we're not giving up. Just last week we filed arguments in the US courts to keep the fight going. Our efforts to reinstate net neutrality in the United States will continue.

You — thousands of you made Facebook listen when the awful news broke of how Facebook and Cambridge Analytica had played fast and loose and irresponsible with millions of users' personal information. And because of you, Facebook is definitely listening.

You — over 26,000 of you signed on to hold Venmo accountable when one of our Mozilla Fellows accessed every public transaction made on the financial app. Highlighting those startling private details from Venmo's publicly available data brought about a much needed conversation around what personal information should be public.

And that's why I'm going to look back on 2018 and not focus on the hard parts. I'm going to look back on 2018 and focus on you. On all the passion you showed. On all the caring you showed. On all the hope you showed in the constant fight for a better internet, a better world. And make no mistake, those two go hand in hand.

Mozilla has an amazing community of supporters. People who take action. People who work every day to educate and advocate. And people who donate their hard-earned money to keep us going right alongside you.

If you can, on this Giving Tuesday, please chip in to keep this work going for all of us, for all of you.

Thank you for making 2018 a year I will always remember.
