Random Hacks of Kindness is a global initiative that was started by Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, NASA and the World Bank.
It brings hackers together with experts in things like bushfire response, climate change and other natural disasters. The aim is to spend the weekend building practical, open source solutions to real world problems.
On the the 7th and 8th of Dec, 32 cities around the world will be joining in to Hack for Humanity. If you're in Sydney - it would be great to see you at the RHoK Sydney event at location - tbd.
