UPDATES AT BOTTOM

Rebecca Vitsmun - while in a sea of "God" rhetoric in the aftermath of the Moore, OK tornado - was being interviewed by CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

When asked by Wolf "Do you thank the Lord?" she quickly responded that she was an atheist.

It's important that our community shows that we have your back when you come out publicly as an atheist.

Let's show the world that you dont need to believe in a god to have human compassion nor does all charity fall under the banner of religion.

Let's get this courageous woman and her family back in their own home.

 

What We Need & What You Get

We dont know the exact cost of putting a family back together when you dont even have a toothbrush anymore so we randomly chose 50,000 dollars as a goal. And that's probably low-ball.
 
 

The Impact

The impact of getting Rebecca and her family properly housed by the atheist community will do far more good than sitting in bars or chat rooms mocking people of faith. Like religion, free-thinking will be more easily spread through compassion and decency.
 

Other Ways You Can Help

Post, Tweet, Call, Email, Text, Write, Yard Signs, Smoke Signals, Myspace...
 
Maybe prayer would be as effective as Myspace.
 
Just get the word and the link to people.

UPDATE
 
As of Friday 24th May we have cleared the initial $50,000 target. In truth, we had no idea how generous and giving our community would prove to be. We reached our goal within 17 hours of starting.  An Indiegogo deadline cannot be changed once it has been set. So this campaign will continue until July 22 2013. At that point the financial cogs will turn and the moneys raised will be delivered to Rebecca Vitsmun. There is no reason for us to stop raising funds. The median cost of a home in Moore, OK is $125, 250, and that was back when they had homes. More importantly, the more money we raise the better the example we set.
 

UPDATE 2 - Sat May 25th 2013

Thanks for your donation.
So far we've raised $77,165.
Some answers to common questions.
1. Rebecca never asked us to do this. She's aware of what we're doing but hasn't asked for anything.
2. As noted before, all funds will be going directly to her at the end of the campaign, July 22.
Spread the word, and thanks again.
This is turning out to be a beautiful thing.

    First Class Upgrade

    With so many religions, the flight to the afterlife could have as many stops as cross-country on Southwest. You dont wanna do that in a middle seat in coach. Upgrade to first class, stretch out, order a cocktail and prepare to meet your maker at baggage claim.
