Although I have always rarely talked about my employer on this blog, I’m always willing to make an exception for a good cause.
Today Microsoft (disclosure for anyone other than my mother who reads this blog: my employer) has expanded the company’s software donations program to give more nonprofits access to technology that can help them do more.
While Microsoft currently donates software to about 40,000 nonprofits a year – that’s only a start – the challenge is making millions of other nonprofits aware that the program exists.
Here’s your good deed for today.
Share this news with your favorite nonprofit and pass it along with a colleague or friend so they can tell their favorite nonprofit.

Now. Not only have you done your good deed for today, but as a bonus you can enjoy this video on why and how Microsoft donates software to nonprofits!
