PCPartPicker is supported through affiliate commissions from participating retailers. One of our founding principles is to help those in need by donating a portion of our earnings to charity. We do this because it is important to us.

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!

This is one of the many reasons I love this website. You guys make such a nice place to share computer info, but yet to good back to the community.

Good work guys!

P.S. May the force of PC building be with you

You should have said: "May the fourth be with you".

maybe... maybe i should have...

But does "May the fourth of pc building be with you" sound better?

i didn't think so...

You can help people out

PCPartPicker donates to charity because they can.

Great to see people giving back! A fabulous community and great people behind the scenes.

Hell yeah guys, incredible. This site is more than PCs and PC parts. Not only does it have this fabulous community, but it's actually helping those who are in need. You guys are providing an incredible service to those across the globe. Keep up the good work PCPP and keep helping those who are in need

I love seeing these reports. It's great to actually see a tech-based site post something like this. Others, even though they do offer the option donate to charities, none of them seem to show any proof that what is being donated is going to the supported cause. Not the case with PCPartPicker!

Keep up the amazing work, and never stop until every person has clean water!

I did not know anything about this before today. This made me smile so much that a site about building PCs and PC parts could do something this generous to the less fortunate. I have gained so much respect for you guys. I love this.

I have appreciated this place as a very helpful venue to me in my desire to learn how to, and build a pc. I already had a very favorable perception of this place. And the stock just went up... way up. A tip of my hat to y'all. Kindness in whatever form it takes is something this world needs more of.

I'm happy to see this once again. The communities that you have helped, I'm certain, are very grateful to have access to clean water. A must have in our daily basis. Again, thank you for giving them the gracious gift of clean water.

Good **** PCPP, great to see you giving to people in need of something every human deserves. Clean water for a clean and healthy life! One of the best tech websites i've been on and will be on for years to come! Much love to PCPP for doing this. :)

When I get on the internet, pull up google chrome, pcpartpicker.com is the main page I saved to load up first. If it was not for this site, and all the people that helped me along the way here, I might not had ever built my first pc, back in 2014.

But it is because of the giving back to others, like this here, is why I am proud to be a part of this community in the first place. :) Thank you for all the help you have done for others by giving water to places that would not have had it like that, if it was not for you guys.

Pardon my ignorance but who is The Carmichael family? Just curious.

Keep up the good work and continue giving back to the community :)

  • 31 months ago

That's me and my family. (My last name is Carmichael.) Our first Charity:water donations came from me personally, and then when the business grew we never changed the attribution. I'm not in it for the plaque though (and the other guys here at the business know that and don't care what's on it). Though I understand starting 2017 they won't be doing the plaques any more, which is totally fine.

Nice! Thank you for clarifying Philip, I didn't know your last name (Whoops! :p)

I am sure that all the people that now have access to water are very thankful :)

Great job!

Cheers!

Not to be a downer, I mean its great these people got something they needed. But if you could instead donate to get rid of homelessness in our own country, that would be awesome.

  • 31 months ago

The desire of my heart to help those in need does not stop at the border to my country. Helping homeless individuals is a worthwhile cause, but it's also a complex one that funding alone cannot solve. Water is as fundamental of a need as it gets. Access to clean water not only saves lives - it allows children time to go to school, get educated, and have hope for their future. One well can transform a community. There are over 600 million people in the world who do not have access to clean water. That is the need I have chosen to focus on.

My opinion got me a -2, oh sure I'm the bad guy for giving out my opinion lol.

I said nothing else because I saw nothing wrong with the answer. The issues in this planet will not be solved by one person or even 1 group, it would take a unanimous world effort to fix the world and a full countrys cooperation to fix a countrys issues and thats not happening any time soon(if ever).

The way i see it, neither of you is wrong, and neither of your options creates a guarantee or permanent fix to the issue you chose to fix. Because no issue is ever that simple.

But you are doing what you can and at least for the moment it does what you both intend..it helps.

Providing a well has its own complications from helping the homeless. I just hope you also provided or set up local government assistance to take care of those issues(maintenance/repairs). Because if they couldn't help themselves to pay for the well to begin with, its just a matter of time before they are back to square one.

If I do nothing, I will certainly not make a difference. However, I'm doing something, and it is making a difference. Is it solving the entire world's problems? No. But go ask the people in the communities affected if it made a difference to them. :)

As for maintenance, yes, that's a big thing to consider. Fortunately Charity:water is on top of that as well with their initiative called Pipeline. I highly encourage you to learn more about it here: https://www.charitywater.org/pipeline/

roamin24, the -2 points on your original comment was 3 peoples opinion, to dislike your opinion. I shouldn't have to explain this simple logic any further.
