Help These Secular Grad Students Do Volunteer Work in the Appalachians

The Humanist Graduate Community at Harvard is heading on a trip to Kentucky during Spring Break to do some volunteer work and make the world a better place:

This year, for our fourth annual Spring Break trip, a group of 8 students will venture to the mountaintops of Kentucky to learn about mountaintop removal and other environmental issues related to the coal mining industry. In a week of service we will plant trees in an abandoned strip mine, weatherize low-income homes, and speak to miners and residents affected by mountaintop removal.

If you support what they’re doing, they could use some funds to help cover the cost of travel. This is a great group of students doing something utterly selfless during their vacation — help them help others by chipping in.
