  • As an independent IT contractor, I do "charity" work year-round. I've got certain clients / friends who I know are on VERY tight budgets but still need their computer systems. They try to keep their calls to me to a minimum, and in return, I don't charge them. I don't even ask for a receipt so I can deduct the value of my work on my taxes. I do this just because I truly believe in the work they do to better the community and the world. When they need new hardware, they buy it (I tell them what to get) and I deploy it for them.
