Twelve Pis of Christmas: Adafruit + @Raspberry_Pi for charity

Adafruit 949

Twelve Pis of Christmas: Adafruit + Raspberry Pi.

Today’s festive piece of Model A Pi comes to eBay courtesy of our friends at Adafruit. By now, you know what this is about: we’re auctioning off the first 12 pre-production Raspberry Pis with some other goodies to raise money for other charities over Christmas. Engineers without Borders (EWB) USA were chosen as the beneficiaries of today’s auction by LadyAda and PT over at Adafruit. (EWB USA aren’t listed with Missionfish in the UK, so again, this auction looks a little different from the others – although Raspberry Pi are listed as the beneficiary charity, 100% of the money raised will go to EWB.)

Engineers without Borders works in developing environments on sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students. You can learn more about them here.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
