Atheists Are Raising Money to Help Victims of the Nepal Earthquake

Foundation Beyond Belief

April 25, 2015 by Hemant Mehta

Last night, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal and every article seems to report more tragedy than the last. What we do know is that more than 1,000 people are dead and many more are injured and homeless.

Foundation Beyond Belief’s Humanist Disaster Recovery team is now raising funds to help the victims and their families.

We are still in the process of vetting a beneficiary that is secular in nature, efficient, and local. We should have that figured out by tomorrow. In the meantime, if you’d like to make a donation now, you can do so here so we can get that money out as soon as possible. 100% of your donations will go to that recipient — Foundation Beyond Belief doesn’t take any overhead for this. If you’d like to wait until we announce the charity we’ll be working with, I completely understand. You can see recaps of our previous disaster efforts here.

Please give if you can. Prayers aren’t going to help.

(Full disclosure: I’m on the FBB board of directors)
