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 GetWe 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 ImpactThe 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.

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.
