However my longer term "volunteer" work would be doing Coral Restoration once this COVID is well past us.  
My wife and I always donate a few of our dives to maintaining the coral farm.

IMO, and in my world Pets abandoned and at risk of being euthanized should be within the list of random acts of kindness one should consider. I personally do, and continuously support charities that find homes for abandoned pets.

Donation for building a well in Africa. My wife did this last year and it was great seeing pictures of actual people in the village using it for their day-to-day needs.
Technical Solutions Director in Software, 1,001 - 5,000 employees
Every single month, we pay for 15 doses of malaria prevention, 5 mosquito nets for families in Africa, 10 vitamin A supplements, and deworming for 10 kids (mostly in India). 

$150 USD total, which doesn't sound like a lot, but it's saving lives.

I can highly recommend http://givewell.org/. Their research is focused on how to donate and where you can make the biggest change with each dollar.

As a survivor of traumatic brain injury, my goal this year is to engage with organizations supporting brain injury health and recovery. I am interested in finding ways to contribute and positively impact the lives of individuals affected by brain injuries.

Kindness is contagious!

Outside of donating to a local hospice (Ty Hafan), I put away a couple of hundred dollars a month into a different account.

When the festive season rolls around in December, I spend the entire balance on supermarket gift cards, and hand them out to people to help brighten their day.

It may be selfish to enjoy paying for another’s shopping, but I’ve always been taught that if you have the capacity, you should always build a longer table instead of a higher wall.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.30%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.53%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.12%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%

I believe that AI can automate away the busy work as a great co-pilot, but the relationship, intuition, conversation, and understanding part of sales should continue to be part of the human experience...
