Weekly newsletter

In December we asked for your support to help us bring a family fleeing the crisis in Syria to Canada. In the past few short months, you answered that call with nearly $10,000 in donations and pledges. This is in addition to the $17,000 we had confirmed before putting out the call

Never let anyone tell you that atheists won’t donate to charity. This is the proof of that generosity. Thank you so much.

I've posted a brief update of where our project is at on our blog. I hope you'll take a look and continue to support this important cause.

We will be looking for more people to volunteer, so please let us know if you might be able to help.
