My Charitable Donation to Humanity (Season's Greetings!)

Postby neilrieck » Mon Dec 03, 2007 12:30 pm

Every November-December I think about making a meager donation to a different charity. This year, I was considering a financial charitable donation to Folding@Home when it occurred to me that I could make an informational charitable contribution to all of humanity by increasing my Folding@Home results (which will advance medical discoveries along with associated pharmaceutical treatments). All I needed to do is to purchase a few high-power ATI video cards on eBay then switch over to the GPU-based clients.

So, world, here is my charitable gift to you. Season's Greetings! :D

Donating money to Stanford/FAH may allow you to get taxes advantages.

Buying hardware and using it to fold won't give you taxes advantages.

But both will help the project ;)

On behalf of the entire folding community, thank you.

I suggest that you also look for a PS3. You'll be able to use it to watch blue-ray movies, to play games if that appeals to you (or your kids), but most importantly, it will make an important contribution to FAH when you're not using it. It's a bit of a power-hog, though, so you'd better figure that into your contribution, and will help as a (small) electric heater on cold nights.

The site is brilliant and thanks for placing so many good resources on it.

Maybe you should put the links in your signature.
