Random Hacks of Kindness is a joint effort founded by Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, NASA and The World Bank, dedicated to bringing software developers together to respond to challenges facing humanity in the area of natural disaster risk.  We start with problem definitions created through consultations with NGOs, governments and experts in the field from around the world, then we invite hackers to a come together to organize and go to work putting their skills to use to solve those problems with software solutions that make a difference on the ground.  At a RHoK hackathon, new technologies are born, existing platforms are built upon, and innovative new ideas attract attention and support.  At the close of the hackathon, teams present the technologies they have developed and prizes are awarded.
