I support Pittsburgh


Nerds in Need!

While I’m also the founder, I currently build each PC for the program myself. If you can donate a few dollars, parts, or even time to the project - it would be greatly appreciated!

The Pittsburgh Nerds in Need program seeks to enable disabled people with little means to do far more, even when limited to the confines of their own homes.

We build budgeted computers with the maximum performance possible and using recent hardware, then freely give them to low-income disabled people, allowing them long term upgradability and compatibility. The computers will allow them the ability to obtain jobs in fields they were previously prohibited from due to cost. Or even livestream much like I do for an extra chance at survivability they wouldn’t have otherwise.

Because the hardware is recent and the same parts are used on each one, each individual is given the same hardware & the computers can be upgraded over the following years - as opposed to used PCs which wouldn’t be able to achieve professional-level tasks, would be past their upgrade cycle, and would likely have to be thrown away in a year or so,
