I posted about this last year, so here’s our updated donation list for 2006. Again, I think they’re all great causes, so I encourage you to check them out.
- Electronic Frontier Foundation - The internet is the most innovative force in our lives and the EFF working to preserve freedom on the net.
- Free Software Foundation - When software is free, it means that we don’t have to reinvent the wheel over and over again. That allows developers to focus on more and more interesting problems.
- Asha for Education - A secular group bringing education to the most needy in India
- Grameen Foundation - In the news recently because they were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, they help the world’s poorest escape poverty through self-sufficiency
- WNYC - To support my NPR Podcast habit.
- Ashoka - Encouraging social entrepreneurs
- Association for India’s Development - Promoting sustainable development in India
- World Education - world education :)
