What I Want For My Birthday

Today is my birthday!

I am not going to be around all day as I am on a cruise right now with no internet access. But in case you would like to give me a gift, there is something special that I really really want and cannot get for myself. I want the movie I was in, Hug An Atheist to be able to be shown in film festivals that can give it the kind of exposure and buzz that it needs to make it a well-seen film. Director Sylvia Broeckx has made a fantastic film for humanizing humanists here and I am proud to be in it and I want it to get around. So, if you could chip in to Sylvia’s campaign to fund the film’s promotion it could make a huge difference to an important little film.

Or, if you don’t feel like donating money or even like getting me a gift. You could always just get yourself the gift of Hug an Atheist. For just $10 you can download the movie and any minute now be watching it right on your computer. For $30, you can order the DVD. [Read more...]
