Secular help for Haiti

by Phil Plait, Jan 20 2010

The James Randi Educational Foundation has teamed up with the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science and a dozen other secular groups to set up a way to donate money to help out the people of Haiti after the huge earthquake last week.

As Randi says,

We at the JREF are very proud to be part of the concerted effort to aid Haiti to recover from this catastrophic event. To my mind, there is nothing more disturbing than hearing the distressed cries of children who are subjected to grief and/or injury, and my personal contribution has already been added to the encouraging total that mounts hour by hour. Please be generous and help us to reach out to Haitians of all ages, of any and all philosophical orientations.

Richard Dawkins will cover $10,000 of PayPal fees, so if you use that method 100% of your donation will go to help.

You can donate here. Please help.

    I have list of secular charities on my blog.
    If you can’t give at least post link to charities and encourage people to give.

  2. AmSci says:

    As has been said many times before, there are no PayPal fees on charitable donations for Haiti.

  3. blorgbeard says:

    Note that Paypal is already waiving fees for payments to any registered charity which is raising money for Haiti.

  4. Carl says:

    Already donated via the JREF site.

    It’s not necessary to use PayPal… I donated directly to MSL with a personal check. Easy.

  6. Besides donating my own money to Haiti, I will continue to pray for them. Lifting everything up to Heaven for them.
