I’m just going to lay it out there. If the Foundation Beyond Belief can get 5,400 people on their international team this week, raising money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through their Light the Night Walks, Todd Stiefel will get a mohawk — and PZ Myers (Pharyngula) and Hemant Mehta (Friendly Atheist) will get tattoos.
Quote, from Todd Stiefel:
Our goal this week is to go from 400 to 5,400 people on the Foundation Beyond Belief international team raising money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We need your help. Please join our team at http://pages.lightthenight.org/2012/FBB. Please encourage your friends and local freethought groups to join as well. If we make this viral, we can hit this stretch goal!
If we are able to add 5,000 people before the end of Saturday, July 14, I will shave to a mohawk while at Camp Quest South Carolina next week. Additionally, PZ Myers and Hemant Mehta will get tattoos. (Watch their blogs today for proof.) Yeah, they are more braver than I am.
Anyone is welcome on the team, regardless of belief (or lack thereof). All money raised goes directly to benefit LLS. Blood cancer does not discriminate and neither do they. They support religious and nonreligious people. 78.1% of their expenses go to cancer research, education and support services.
Also, anyone on the team at the end of the week will be entered in a drawing to win a Kindle Fire! Thanks to LLS for that incentive prize.
Finally, everything we raise this year will be matched dollar-for-dollar until we hit our $1,000,000 goal!
Let’s show the world the kind of good atheists, agnostics and humanists can do when we join together.
We can do this! Do it for the tattoos; do it for atheism — and most of all, do it to fight cancer.
