Second chance for donating software to non-profits

Second chance for donating software to non-profits

Sheri Orloff has set up a Web site called “Second Chance Software” to help direct software to appropriate nonprofit organisations.

If you have software you would like to donate to someone who will genuinely appreciate it, simply visit the site and fill out the short form. Ms Orloff developed the site after helping a nonprofit search for suitable freeware software.

The initiative demonstrates the need for charities to include appeals for gifts-in-kind on their Web sites, not just appeals for money.
