I'm a bit slow in replying to this thread, but what about putting a section in
for a suitably global and well respected charity? Perhaps there could be vote
(if it isn't too much work) on which charity should be supported for each
release. So, for example, along with a bit about how to get involved with
Ubuntu there could be a piece on Unicef, Oxfam, Amazonwatch or etc. An A4 or US
Letter page should have plenty of space for both, and there's no need for it to
take huge amounts of ink.
