When you purchase components through retailer links on PCPartPicker you're not only supporting this site, you're helping provide clean water and sanitation to people in need. 100% of donations to charity: water go directly to the field.

Thank you for being a part and helping make this happen!

Absolutely! You can donate via their website: https://charitywater.org (We don't run a campaign on their site for our donations, though we may at some point in the future.)

We take it for granted - turn on the tap, clean water.

We forget about those that don't have such access.

Keep it going...next stop Completion Report #100.

why don't you help poor americans first?

Because I believe people are people regardless of their nationality, race, religion, or color of skin. I prefer to give where there is the greatest need, and in most situations that is not the US.

We do donate to causes within the US as well.
