Great idea.  I can also see many highly experienced, semi-retired professionals giving back by donating their expertise to a worthy cause through this organization.  This could have the added benefit of keeping one's skill set sharp during the post-career years.

I doubt if people can't even give $20 to charity they will give their time... but I honestly hope this catches on.

Thanks for writing about this, Cabe. I also like Greg's suggestion, that more experienced people could donate their expertise.

Ann,

I suppose if the skilled person has a lot of time, this is a great outlet for their good deeds.

Barring the fact they may be an evil scientist.

Well, I guess the definition of the evil scientist would be at least partly determined by those requesting the skills/dollars for the evil science project, don't you think?

Evil is always defined as a scientific endeavor that negatively effects people. You could argue that a lot of engineers and scientists have direct and indirect evil projects. As in how to best market products, aka proliferation of people's money. Or life risk analysis stating that people will die, but not that many. The report is then a secret. Happens everyday.
