Starting in September 2021 – A percentage of the total gross sales of any open source PCB design that is sold by Consoles Unleashed will be given to charity. This will range between 5% and 10% depending on the price and type of mod kit. I know this is not much, but it is a start and it is something to give back for the generosity of the open source designers that offer their work for free and allow sites like mine to sell them having done no work for the privilege. In time, if this business is thriving, this percentage can be raised with the possibility of opening it up to my original kits. Mod kits will be marked with a badge on the relevant product page. Why September? because it will take time to set up and to identify causes that make real differences and that need donations. It will be backdated to include sales from 15 July 2021.
UPDATE: Feb 2022. Donations have had to be stopped due to not getting sufficient sales. When/if sales increase I will explore this idea again.
