Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium for only $79, 100% of which goes to charity

September 8th, 2012 · No Comments · Developing Areas

If you have a brand new PC (or wiped an old PC clean and want to install the latest operating system on it), Project Contact Africa has a deal for you.

On eBay they’re selling authentic, full OEM versions of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium. Unlike on Amazon where you’ll pay $175, here you can get it for the ridiculous price of $79 with free shipping. And furthermore, 100% (that’s right, 100%) of proceeds will go to Project Contact Africa’s mission.

While the listing isn’t clear of how they’re doing this, my guess is that they’ve received a large number of donations of these (probably from corporations who bought PCs but decided to install Linux or something). If that’s the case it’s a win-win-win situation–the original donors gets their tax deduction, Project Contact Africa gets an infusion of donation money to help its cause, and you get an official copy of Windows 7 for less than half price.

While their Web site is in bad need of updating, read Project Contact Africa’s blog to see pictures of some of the great things they and their volunteers are doing to help feed people in Africa.
