It has long been my desire that PCPartPicker be able to contribute to people in need. Not just help building a computer, but much more fundamental and significant needs such as access to clean, safe drinking water. If you are building your own computer, the odds are high that you have quick and easy access to clean water. Many people in developing countries are not so fortunate.
I've had many people ask if they can buy PCPartPicker t-shirts or stickers. I am pleased to announce that I am now selling PCPartPicker shirts, and that 100% of the proceeds benefit charity. I have chosen to support Charity:Water, a non-profit organization that provides clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. PCPartPicker will also contribute an additional $10 for each shirt, up to the first 200 sold. Stickers are on order, and should be available for sale in roughly a week. As with the t-shirts, 100% of the proceeds from sticker sales will be donated to charity.
You can find all of the PCPartPicker merchandise at the new PCPartPicker store. I am extremely excited to open it up, knowing that with your help we will be changing lives for many people in need.
