Wayback Machine - fund raising
The founder and digital librarian, Brewster Kahle, said this appeal to ensure facts, good, reliable information is archived at a time when fake news is proliferating.
The objective of the fund raising is to create copy of the archive's digital collections in Canada because Mr Kahle said: '...lots of copies keeps things safe.'
During this month, a supporter of the archive, will match donations dollar for dollar.
The Wayback Machine is a digital archive of the World Wide Web and other information on the Internet run by a non-profit organisation based in San Fransisco, California.
The intent is to capture and archive content that would otherwise be lost whenever a site is changed to closed down.
