I love this idea from Joel Guttormson and the Metro State Atheists in Colorado.
They’re running a charity event called Food for Freethought 2009.
Given the existing goals of Metro State Atheists, it is only natural that we would attempt to help the hungry by promoting freethought, freedom of expression, and free inquiry. With the proper support, we can have an immeasurable positive community impact!
Here’s how it works: You give them non-perishable foods, and they’ll give you a banned book!
The food will go to Food Bank of the Rockies.
All this will happen at the Auraria Campus in Colorado sometime during Banned Books week (September 26th — October 3rd).
And, of course, if you’re in the area, please consider giving lots of food at the end of September!
