Atheism Plussers Help With Connecticut Shooting Victims… Almost
December 17, 2012 15 Comments
The Social Justice Worriers at the Atheism Plus Forum have started a thread on giving aid to the victims and families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT, USA.. and they’d do it too, if it weren’t so inconvenient:
I’d recommend we work with the Atheist Humanist Society, personally. We could also contact the school and see if they would be willing to work with us directly- but I have a feeling that that would be unwelcome stress at a time like this. Anyways, if other people want to participate in this, we’ll need someone who is able to do so to contact the Atheist groups (or just the Atheist Humanist Society) and see if they would be able/willing to work with us. (Grimalkin, OP)
“We’ll need someone who is able to contact the Atheist groups”? What’s the matter, Grimalkin, cat got your phone?
I would like to help, but I’m not from the U.S., so it might be difficult. (rubys00)
You poor dear! If only there were a way to send aid to other countries.
Okay, turns out much planning will not be necessary, because there is a Newtown charity that is accepting donations, which will be distributed to the affected families. http://www.newtownyouthandfamilyservices.org Somehow I actually had the ability to write emails today… (Grimalkin)
Congratulations on your ability to write emails! I’m sure your MENSA membership plaque is on its way. And congratulations on finding a charity that will do all the work for you. There’s a grand total of four entries in that thread. Job well done all around, Plussers! Time to take a well-earned rest from all that hardcore activism. Perhaps even another pity party?
This Just In!
Sources say Grimalkin may have a chronic illness. While this reporter has been unable to corroborate this information, SkepDirt’s mission is to make fun of idiocy, not of disability. If Grimalkin truly does have a disability, then this reporter regrets the implication of laziness on her* part.
This doesn’t excuse the rest of the 2000+ Plussers who apparently see no reason to take action in A+’s name to provide aid or comfort to the victims in Newtown, but it does excuse Grimalkin.
