Spatial Data Resources; Geospatial volunteer?

The American Red Cross web pages are a great resource if you are looking for a links to geospatial data warehouses–particularly data sets used in responding to disasters.  Check out the following for more info: http://maps.redcross.org/website/Links/ARC_Disaster_Links_Resources.html

Volunteer your geospatial skills at:  http://www.redcross.org/support/volunteer/opportunities.  The American Red Cross also has internships and paid positions; some are for GIS professionals.  (Note:  the easiest way to volunteer with the Red Cross as a geospatial professional is likely to be as a GIS Corps member!)
