I participated in RHOK #1 and remotely in RHOK #2. It has been by far the most rewarding technology-related volunteer opportunity I've been a part of (including OWASP).
It's a lot of fun and you can make a real difference. Would definitely encourage anyone with some spare time that weekend!

The organization is called Random Hacks of Kindness (http://www.rhok.org) and their mission is to make the world a better place through a global community of innovation developing practical open technology. There have been 3 global events to date in 31 cities around the globe with over 3000 participants. During their last event in June 2011, over 120 problems were addressed by 110 technology solutions that have been used by organizations such as the World bank, governments, emergency responders, and citizens. It looks like they will be holding the next global event (http://www.rhok.org/events) on Thursday, December 1st - Sunday, December 4th. You don't need to commit to the whole time and they have a number of problems available already to choose from (http://www.rhok.org/problems). If you like building software, have a passion for social change, or just like hanging around people who do, then this is the place for you. Check it out and see if there is a RHOK event near you!
