A Dancing Thank-You From Atheist Organizations

For weeks now, Camp Quest, Foundation Beyond Belief, and the Secular Student Alliance were in the running to win a lot of money, courtesy of the Chase Community Giving Program.

Thanks to your votes and your help in getting the word out, CQ and FBB won $20,000 each and the SSA came away with $50,000! That’s a *major* victory. And it’s great to see so many organizations — including ones not in the running — urging their members to work together to support those groups. That’s a level of cooperation in our movement we didn’t always see in the past.

As a thank you, representatives from the three winning groups created a video. It involves dancing. And it made me smile :) The fun really begins at the 0:20 mark:

    They may have to use most of that money for dance lessons.  (funny though)

    This is probably because the video includes commercial music. Nothing to be done about it by person who posted the video, but you could try using alternate browser user agent modes on your mobile device to get around it.
