not to be, or include, a wiki.
Wikimedia Shop is not a wiki – although its page layout mimics other wikis. It is an online website shop for the merchandising of various unique Wikimedia Foundation-"branded apparel and other promotional items". Its primary URL is — and this service is supported by two partner orgainizations, namely Social Imprints, LLC (which provides higher-paying professional jobs to at-risk adults including ex-offenders and recovering drug addicts [1]), and Shopify Inc. (a specialist online e-commerce organization). This current outlet is replacing the older CafePress shop.

The range of items available includes calendars, keyrings, pens, sticker packs, pin badges; as well as larger functional items such as bags and backpacks, stainless-steel water bottles; and the seemingly obligitory clothing range which includes T-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies and sports jackets.

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the non-profit organization responsible for a very large number (over 850 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed for them known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikinews (news source), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikispecies (a free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these projects have separate wiki versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (for images, videos and other media files that can be used by all the Wikimedia projects), Wikidata (central space for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (for issues common to all Wikimedia projects). Its most recent project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation is a member of the Open Source Initiative.
