…and how, in the process, to do a tiny bit today to help dispel the notion that without religion people will not have any mechanisms for mobilizing collective charitable action:
As many of you know, I work with the Foundation Beyond Belief. Dale McGowan and the other senior staff spent half the night researching relief organizations in Oklahoma to decide which ones to send contributions to help the victims of yesterday’s horrific tornado damage. We have selected Operation USA and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, both of which are on the ground providing crucial food, shelter and medical care to the victims. Please go to our donation page and help out if you can and please share this on your own blogs, Facebook pages and other social networks. Every dollar will go directly to those organizations. This is another opportunity for the atheist, secular and humanist community to step up and show the world our compassion and generosity.
