Could you build a pie to run in conjunction with others to make a crowd sourced VPN?

Just a random thought.  Maybe it already exists.

I'd be shocked if OpenVPN wasn't available for Raspbian.

It's very much available. There's a set of scripts called PiVPN which make the whole process pretty straight forward.

Having said that, the Pi might struggle a bit if you're trying to run a high bandwidth VPN tunnel and/or with multiple simultaneous clients.

WireGuard is already built into the kernel.
Works fine. I use it all the time. Same R-Pi that runs my pi-hole.

Op, if you're just looking to run your data back through your home network when abroad check out your home router and see if it has a VPN. My netgear router has it and I run the script through openVPN on my phone.

This VPN setup would simply be for hiding your data when on public wifi. If you are looking for anonymity then you need to go with one of the commercial VPN's like Nord or PIA.
