Charities for Christmas

Two days before Christmas and I bet there are people out there buying their last minute Christmas gifts. Why not take some time out to give to other other people around the World who may need it more than we (or our friends or family) do. Ever little bit counts, come help out.

Below are a list of charity organizations I’ve donated to recently. Feel free to just read up about them or even donate to them.

charity: water

http://www.charitywater.org/

charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects

For all Revision3 fans I’m sure you know about it but don’t forget to check out the Revision3′s campaign page for all their shows: http://revision3.com/charitywater

Hackers for Charity

(formerly known as I Hack Charities.org)
http://hackersforcharity.org/ or http://ihackcharities.org/

We are Hackers for Charity.

So what do we do?

  • We feed children through our “food for work” program.
  • We build computer labs to help students learn skills and land jobs that are key to disrupting poverty’s vicious cycle.
  • We provide technical assistance to charities that can not afford IT services.
  • We provide job experience and references to our volunteers.

Our largest project is headed by Johnny Long in East Africa. In June 2009, he and his family relocated to Uganda to focus on HFC full-time. Read more about their journey here or fund their volunteer work here.

Richmond Book Drive

Not only do you get to donate books to schools, but you also get a few Christmas tracks from Pomplamoose

So spare a thought and prayer for those less fortunate as we have a long weekend that will probably be filled with food, family and fellowship.

With that have a merry Christmas and happy holidays!
