If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:
Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)
Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.

"Facebook has targeted politicians around the world – including the former UK chancellor, George Osborne – promising investments and incentives while seeking to pressure them into lobbying on Facebook’s behalf against data privacy legislation, an explosive new leak of internal Facebookdocuments has revealed."

I'm pre-emptively coining #LeftMastodon for Mastodon users that are left-handed before the hashtag can be used for anything awful and full of drama. Who's with me? Any other left-handed people here to join the cause?
How I know I still love programming: every winter, at the end of the year, when I'm fed up of anything tech-related, I take a long-ish vacation (2-3 weeks), during which I barely touch computers at all.
During the first week, I barely notice it.
During the last few days, I'm already toying with an idea for a new program, or wondering about a weird bug, or thinking about something new to try.
When I'm back, first thing I do is turn my computer on and BAM! I'm 12 again and this is so cool!
