Too many Pis ?

Wed Feb 04, 2015 1:58 pm

Is there any authorised way to donate surplus pis. With new versions many people are likely to replace and have older ones gathering dust. I know I will. Ideally I would like to donate through an approved channel.

FYI, there was a post yesterday asking the same question - find a way to pass on unused Pis. (Can't remember where it was.)

I think just find a kid who could use one, and help get them started on it... if they're not annoyed by an old model that is.

EDIT: here it is...

Me too. I have too many pis. Two of which are still in their anti-static bags.
