MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: A Humanist Response to Typhoon Haiyan

Posted November 13, 2013

As a Filipina, I was particularly saddened to learn about the devastation after Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda hit the Philippines over the weekend. But when disaster strikes, I know I can always rely on humanists who are ready to respond with generous financial donations, knowing that using money to purchase food, water and medical supplies is far more useful than sending prayers, Bibles, or proselytizing materials. As the great agnostic Robert G. Ingersoll said, “The hands that help are better far than lips that pray.”

Humanist Charities, the charitable arm of the American Humanist Association, is partnering with the Philippine Atheist & Agnostic Society (PATAS) to send funds that will bring food and water to victims on the Hilutungan Island of Cebu—an area particularly hit hard by the typhoon. I hope you can give $10, $20, or any amount—it truly makes a difference for those in need. You have my sincerest thanks.
