Today we’re auctioning one of the first Raspberry Pi Model A production samples on behalf of a charity chosen by Dr Rob Mullins. Rob is one of the founding trustees of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and is a lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Cambridge.
Rob has chosen to donate the money raised from the auction of this Raspberry Pi (which will come bundled with some other goodies – see the listing for more details) to Practical Action, an international charity that uses technology to challenge poverty in developing countries.
Rob says: “Practical Action aims to reduce poverty. They work with communities around the world, using simple innovative ideas to help make things better. They aim to make long-term improvements and encourage collaboration within the community and beyond. I’ve always been particularly impressed by their approach”.
As with all the auctions in our Twelve Pis of Christmas listings, 100% of the money raised will go to the chosen charity. Get bidding!
