My focus is on the religious attack on science and the ill effects it has on our children, particularly in our educational system. Proper scientific education through free thought and critical thinking is key to our future. | @danarel
Atheists are often criticized by the media for not being as charitable as the religious. As we all know, this is not a factual statement, as atheists have always done an amazing job at raising money, giving support and helping others. On September 29th, atheists in San Diego, CA will be raising money for HIV and AIDS prevention and care programs. This is the largest walk in San Diego of its kind. Jen (@kidsgosplat) and Kyle (@unicornonthemoon) are heading up this team (Team Amazeballs), and Kyle himself as said if the team meets their goal of $1000 he will wear a unicorn costume.
The team has stated “We are participating in the AIDS Walk & Run San Diego because HIV & AIDS have touched our lives and affected the community & people we love. This is our opportunity to be visible in our support for those living with HIV and AIDS and raise money for critical support services in our community.” You can help them meet (and hopefully beat!) their goal of $1000 by visiting their team page here.
So let’s show the world that atheists do care about charity, especially when it comes to supporting our fellow citizens who are in need of programs to help with HIV and AIDS prevention and care.
