We all want to make a difference in this world, but a busy programmer or developer may only have a few hours here and there to give back to the community--not enough time for building houses or volunteering at a soup kitchen. What if there were way that you could use a spare hour here and there and use your development expertise to help out charity organizations?

MakeADiff.org, announced yesterday by Atlassian, can help you give back when you only have a few hours of computer time to spare. MakeADiff is a place where vetted charitable organizations can post their tech projects they need help with, and tech professionals can search through the postings to find projects that they can help out on without leaving their favorite dev environment. 

Scheduled to launch in early 2014, MakeADiff's pilot projects are currently live.
