Atheists Dig Deep to Help Tsunami Victims
January 4, 2005
Since December 26, all of us have been bombarded by news and pictures of one of the worst
natural disasters in modern history. The death toll from the Boxing Day tsunami continues
to rise, and aid organizations are scrambling to get resources into place for what will be
a prolonged and expensive recovery effort.
Austin atheists are pitching in to help.
ACA's Tsunami Relief fund drive began at the January 2nd meeting at Cresent City, and will
run until February 10th, ACA's birthday. 100% of the money collected will delivered to
Oxfam, a highly respected relief organization.
Those wishing to contribute may do so by seeing treasurer Don Rhoades at an ACA meeting,
through PayPal (http://www.atheist-community.org/donate.php), or by sending a check or
money order to -
PO Box 3798
Austin, TX 78764
Please indicate that your donation is for Tsunami Relief.
From the officers:
