Atheist Groups Team Up to Fundraise for Boston Bombing Victims and Their Families

WeAreAtheism.com, the Boston Atheists, the Humanist Community at Harvard, and the Secular Coalition for Massachusetts have teamed up to do a little fundraising for the victims and families of the Boston bombing yesterday.

Over 150 people were injured and 3 died. We want to help. We helped raise over $25,000 for the victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre, in Newtown, CT. We decided to do it again. “Atheists Giving Aid” exists to respond in tragedies like this and provide a resource for non-believers (and others) to give money that will make it to the victims and their families without passing through ANY religious affiliated organizations. You can safely give us your money and know that we attach no religious messages or dogmas to it. We just want to help.

They’ve already raised over $8,400 in a few hours and all the money will be given to local agencies in Boston or directly to the families.

If you’d like to chip in, you can do so right here.
