Tim Piazza’s iPad stand is a simple easel that holds the iPad upright on a flat surface. He created this inexpensive iPad stand from corrugated plastic to raise money for charities.

Available in black, silver and white, the stands are sold through his Ezzyl web site (http://ezzyl.com/) and the customer can choose a charity for 20% of the proceeds to be donated to. Piazza selected charities based on their strong ratings and global reach. Selling for under five dollars — US$4.95, to be exact — the iPad stand is stain-resistant, durable, rigid, and weighs less than an ounce.
