(Full disclosure: I’m on the board of directors)
I say pre-launch because, come January 1st, the full website will be available to use (including a social network, discussion forum, a list of beneficiaries to support, etc).
Here’s Executive Director Dale McGowan explaining what FBB is all about:
I’ve had the privilege to be on ground zero of two organizations as they formed from scratch. The first one was the Secular Coalition for America and you’ve all witnessed the phenomenal rise of that group. This is the other one. Just as I was with SCA, I’m *very* excited about the potential this group has. Finally, there’s an organized way to get Secular Americans to donate to good causes. It’s a perfect example of how Humanism works in action and how “immoral” atheists can indeed do very ethical things.
