I need sponsoring for the VSCP project and if you can contribute in some way all help is welcome. Use the button below if you want to do money donations. Every Dollar/Euro helps. Donations go to the usual bills, Github, Internet providers, Servers, Electric bills etc.
A good way to sponsor the VSCP project is to buy something from the FrogShop.
I also need components for my hardware development and development machines. Everything costs money and I work on really old stuff. If you have old hardware that you have no need for anymore please consider donating it to this project. If you do boards or electronic hardware that is another way to contribute. We usually do reference designs on the stuff we have at hand so that usually pays back double.
If you cant afford it or don't want to contribute money send me a postcard. We want our walls full of them (Send to Ake Hedman, Brattbergavägen 17, 820 50 LOS, Sweden). Emails is fine to.
My wife, Karin, is the biggest long term sponsor of the VSCP project. Accepting all the time I have spent working on this over the years (16 years when this is written). Doing this without complaining even once. She is also the one working full time to make our everyday life possible, a fact that really make it possible for me to do this work, paying the bills and putting food on the table. She is worth roses and presents. So a way to contribute to the project is also to send something to her. Karin Hedman, Brattbergavägen 17, 820 50 LOS, Sweden. If Karin is happy, I am happy.
