MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: Text AHA to 50555 and Join the Humanist Mobile Community

Posted December 05, 2013

Many of you probably share the same experience: Ten years ago, I had a flip phone which I used only for phone calls. Now I can hardly separate myself from my iPhone without calling, texting, checking email, reading the news, even watching movies. But rather than bemoan my bondage to technology, I embrace the opportunity to stay connected in ways I would've never imagined possible.

One of the simplest ways to stay connected to the American Humanist Association is to get updates from us via text message. Simply text AHA to 50555 to join the Humanist Mobile Community and receive breaking news from the American Humanist Association. (We never send more than two (2) text messages a month, and you can unsubscribe at any time by texting STOP to 50555 to STOP. Text HELP to 50555 for HELP. Full terms: mgive.org/T) Last month, our mobile community members got to hear first that former Rep. Barney Frank will be our 2014 Humanist of the Year. What news will December bring?

MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday

Posted November 20, 2013

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It combines my three favorite things: family, food, and football! I hope you enjoy this year’s Thanksgiving Issue and consider using one of our “non-prayers” before the big meal or even making an AHA staffer’s favorite Thanksgiving dish from our collection of recipes!

I’m also looking forward to starting my holiday shopping on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday (I have seven siblings and six nieces and nephews—I need the deals!). But did you know about Giving Tuesday, a movement to encourage more Americans to donate to charity? The American Humanist Association is a proud member of a coalition of charities participating in Giving Tuesday this year, and we hope you’ll take part!

As you consider buying gifts for your loved ones this holiday season, consider a special gift to the American Humanist Association as we continue our important work on behalf of the non-religious community. After all, considering the inevitable church-state violations that happen during Christmas, we’ll need it to protect our public spaces from religious intrusion!
