Atheists of Maine Raise Thousands of Dollars by Taking a Polar Plunge

Over the weekend, members of the Atheists of Maine took a polar plunge — jumping into a freezing lake in already-cold weather — in order to raise money for Camp Sunshine: “a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.”

The atheists raised more money for the cause than any other group, $2,169 to be exact. An awesome amount of money for a local group!

I don’t know how some of you jump in freezing water or run up dozens of flights of stairs or run marathons… but you have my respect.

If you’d still like to donate, it’s not too late. Just go here and help them out so they can do good while staying warm!
