Support the Secular Students?

***UPDATE***: Reader Colin says:

I put in $100, and will throw in another $10 per person below who posts saying they donated $10 or more (up to a max of $100 more)…

My friend Ashley (sporting a fantastic new haircut) made a video explaining the Secular Student Alliance‘s new matching grant:

The Vital Spark Foundation is offering to match up to $20,000 worth of donations… but only until August 1st.

Ashley has set a goal to raise $5,000 of that money.

If you’d like to help out by pitching in a buck or two, you’d be helping us out. (I’m not just saying that, either. If every reader gave $1, we’d reach that goal with plenty to spare.)

Here’s what Ashley has raised so far:

If you’d like to support us, here’s the link.

Any help you can give would make Ashley happy.

I mean… do you really want to make her upset? That would be very mean of you. Don’t be mean.

There. I have guilt-tripped you into giving. My work here is done :)

    I am a student, and I still dug deep to support this. I hope the rest of you that aren’t paying thousands of dollars a semester can do the same! 😉

    Yes!

    Thanks for the <3!

    Now no one wants to make me upset – right? :)

    Thank you, Eric! I started giving as a student, too, and it never felt like I was giving anything up.

  • Wim

    OK, I donated. It’s always nice to give to a good cause.

  • Devysciple

    Will throw in a few bucks as soon as the salary hits my account.

    Btw, your guilt-tripping didn’t work for me. Ashley’s cuteness however… 😀

  • Colin M

    I put in $100, and will throw in another $10 per person below who posts saying they donated $10 or more (up to a max of $100 more). It’s like *quadrupling* your donation :)

  • Joe No Halo

    Great vid, Ashley. Glad to help! $20 donation… so to Colin, thanks for your kind offer to add $10 to that.

    All the best to SSA!

    Would you make a comment like that about Richard Dawkins or Christopher Hitchens?

    I totally would :)

  • Eliza

    Despite the sexist comments about Ashley, I have donated more than $10. With doubling, and Colin’s generous offer, it’ll add $110 to the fund. Good luck!

    Edited to add: assuming Colin’s $10 addition also is doubled, all together we’ve just added $120 to the fund. Yay!

  • Colin M

    I just put in $20 more – thanks Eliza and Joe :) Anyone else?

  • Chal

    $20 in from me yesterday, that still count, Colin? :)

  • Colin M

    Chal: yup! Will add $10 more to my donation in a jiffy.

  • Tim Stroud

    I donated $100 and happy to do it.

    This broke-ass, godless student just chipped in 20 bønez.

  • Richard Wade

    I’m getting $100 for my birthday, so I just donated that to the cause. (Thanks, Mom.)

  • Colin M

    I just put in $30 more :)
