Support the Bus!

The DHMakerBus is a community project, and there are many different ways you can help to get us up and running. Below is a list of items we hope to have on the bus to work on various projects. If you have anything on this list and would like to donate it, we’ll gladly recognize you or your business on this page. When we hold events around London, there will be a collection point for used technology and tools, and if you are in the London area, we’ll gladly swing by and pick up any donations, just send us a quick email to
