Submitted by robindch
robindch writes: Spurred by the horrific suffering in Haiti, the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science (RDFRS) has joined forces with many other non-religious, atheist, skeptic, freethought and similar groups, to collect donations to non-religiously-aligned relief organizations, namely the Doctors Without Borders (Médecins sans Frontières) and the International Red Cross. 100% of the donation will be go to these charities, since Dawkins will personally donate a sum to cover the cost of the Paypal transaction fees (capped at $10,000), meaning that more of your money will reach the people in need. When donating via Non-Believers Giving Aid, you are helping to counter the myth that only the religious care about their fellow-humans.
