One more for the Charity Guide: Hackers for Charity:

We employ volunteer hackers (no questions asked) and engage their
skills in short “microprojects” designed to help charities that can
not afford traditional technical resources. Our industry experts vet
all the work to guarantee a high-quality product, and volunteers are
rewarded with glowing references from our industry-recognized subject
matter experts. With each project, our volunteers move one step closer
to that dream job, and a charity is brought one step closer to its
technical goals. We’ve designed and built web sites, set up blogs,
programmed custom web applications, conducted code reviews, performed
security assessments and more, all through our volunteer’s efforts. In
addition, thanks to one donor, we provide hosting, bandwidth and
support for the final product free of charge.
We’re also working on the ground in Uganda, East Africa to support aid
organizations working to help some of the world’s poorest citizens. We
provide free computer training in our computer training center, and we
provide technical support in the form of computer repair, networking
services and more. We have supported many local schools with the
addition of computers and training software.
We also provide food to children in East Africa through our food
program. All the profits from sales of my No-Tech Hacking book go into
this program along with the income from our (now-defunct) Informer

The 2016 World Series game 7 will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the greatest baseball games of all time.
