Sony Open Planet Ideas Winner - Greenbook: Giving you that extra push to do some good

Say you're sitting around on a Saturday, with no obligations other than bumming around the house and poking at old projects you've been "meaning to get to" for months. You debate the idea of actually doing something meaningful with your weekend, maybe even with some quick volunteer work, but where do you go? Even if you had considered this on some Saturday, the extra effort required to identify a volunteer organization might have burned away any energy you were ready to expend.
Ay, there's the rub: How can people quickly and easily connect with the thousands of charities, nonprofits and groups they might want to help, even for just a few hours?
Paul Frigout considered this problem and created Greenbook, the winning concept from the Sony Open Planet Ideas Challenge.
