just my reasons:

I spend spare time on a FLOSS projects

- to scratch my itch, i.e. because I want it to do something it currently 
doesn't do to my liking (that was the case for everything I contributed to)

- because I'm doing something good for the world :-)

- I can quickly get results (e.g. by using a known technology, or contributing 
is easy, etc.)

- the community is not too hostile

- I do not contribute in order to improve my CV
