Donation

Sat Jul 14, 2012 6:15 pm

Just to let the Foundation know I have just donated via the Charities Aid Foundation after selling monitors, keyboards and mice to pi users here.

For everyone else it is very easy to donate to the Raspberry Pi Foundation. just go to the Charities Aid Foundation website - http://www.cafonline.org and search for Raspberry Pi. Decide how you are going to pay and how much and it is a 2 second job - PayPal is accepted as well as credit and debit cards. Gift Aid in the UK means you include your full name and address and our nice Inland Revenue add a further 25% to the total. :lol:

I'm not the Foundation, but would like to say thanks anyway :) It's easy to forget that The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a registered UK charity with a specific aim of improving education, and your generous donation and your advice is much appreciated. Thanks!

Indeed, thanks for your generosity. Maybe some kid, somewhere, will become the next (Bill Gates) John Carmack thanks to you :P

Thanks very much! I think @asb did the counting of the coins after Saturday's festivities; I'll ask him.

What happens to all pickled eggs. Eaten by one of Satan's little helpers, because IT'S THE DEVILS FOOD!
