Non-Believers Giving Aid: a religion-free way to help disaster victims
Spurred by the horrific suffering in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake, the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science (RDFRS) has joined forces with 20 other freethought groups or associates, to collect donations to non-religious relief organizations. Those participating are Atheist Alliance International, Atheists Helping the Homeless, Atheists United, The British Humanist Association, Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain, Freedom From Religion Foundation, The International Humanist and Ethical Union, James Randi Educational Foundation, Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, New Humanist Magazine, Pharyngula, Rationalist Association, Rationalist International, Reasonable New York, The Reason Project, The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, Secular Student Alliance, Skeptics in the Pub, The Skeptic Magazine, The Skeptics Society and Unreasonable Faith.
We have set up a new dedicated bank account and PayPal facility in the new name of Non-Believers Giving Aid. All of the money donated will be distributed to disaster relief. All the money raised by the current campaign will go to that cause, but the account will remain available for future emergencies too.
There are, of course, many ways for you to donate to relief organizations already, but doing it through Non-Believers Giving Aid offers some advantages:
- 100% of your donation will be go to these charities. This means that more of your money will reach the people in need.
- When donating via Non-Believers Giving Aid, you are helping to counter the scandalous myth that only the religious care about their fellow humans.
