I just got a note from Ali Daniali who is at the Flex 360 conference right now in Seattle. Ali has been running the Flex Code Jam, which has gotten a bit of mention in blogs, but I wanted to call it out specifically. Ali really wanted to find a way to give something back to the non profit world and pull a group of developers together to do it.
So he's organized a coding event at Flex 360 to pull some folks together to build a Flex based Virtual Food Drive application for a charity called Northwest Harvest.
Here are a couple of links:

I love this concept and think that combining coding and charity makes a lot of sense. Special thanks to all the sponsoring organizations and most importantly all the folks participating in this!
