We Are Atheism responds to the UNC Chapel Hill Shootings

The Board of We Are Atheism is deeply saddened by the senseless and heinous deaths of Yusor Mohammad, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, and Deah Barakat, who were killed on Tuesday, February 10th, 2015 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. We wish to convey our sympathies to the families of the victims, and everyone touched by this tragedy. They were driven individuals who were dedicated to serving both their community, and those who needed help abroad. It is always a shame when someone’s life is cut short, but it is especially painful when the lives were so caring with so much potential to help others....

Help My Daughter Tell Her Father Goodbye

At Skepticon 7 in Springfield, MO Clary Rhyne came by the We Are Atheism table to see what we were all about. After hearing that we have a philanthropic extension that helps in “unforeseeable circumstances” she told us about how her daughter’s father had recently passed away but she had no way of getting her to the funeral. So, after filling out the Atheists Giving Aid application for Aid we called others to verify her story as well as talk to her daughter. We approved a $200 grant to help Clary with gas and food along the way. She knows that without the kind help from...

Sherry Mitchell- Invest In Life

Update: Together we raised $347 to help Sherry gain access to the MRI she so desperately needed.

Teresa Mitchell thanks Atheists Giving Aid

Dear Atheist’s Giving Aid, I am one of the “long term unemployed.” I lost my job in March 2013 and began receiving Unemployment Compensation in May 2013. I had been working steadily since I was 17 years old. I am now 45. I suffer from several chronic health conditions which leave me in constant pain. Even so, I diligently began a job search, to little avail. I suddenly found myself either over-qualified or under-qualified for many jobs. I put in over 200 applications/resumes and received only two interviews. I couldn’t even get work in fast food! Dec. 28, 2013 the...

A Couple left destitute after Identity Theft

A couple had their identity stolen and were about to loose their house due to not having the money they had saved up in order to buy a new car.  $10,000 is a lot of money for someone to steal from you.  Amanda Brown happened to be talking to this couple while at an atheist group hangout at a restaurant. After finding this out she asked the board of directors if we could help alleviate the stress of this situation financially as well as help them get the person who did this caught and punished for hurting someone in the hardest way possible. Atheists Giving Aid gave this couple $6,000* to...
