Elderly Members Of Atheist Group Face Jeers, Fears From Peers

@missionaccomplished, you don't believe that there are any atheist groups raising money for those in need? The group that I'm involved in, Atheists of Maine, is currently looking for sponsors for a Polar Dip this February to raise money for Camp Sunshine. Camp Sunshine is a retreat on Sebago Lake in Maine where terminally ill children and their families can go for a week to have a good time and forget about their problems. Even after the children pass away, the families can continue visiting Camp Sunshine.

So, to raise money for this very worthy cause, we're going to jump into the Atlantic from a Maine beach in February. Our team goal is to raise at least $1,500, though obviously we want to collect as many donations as we can. 100% of the donations go straight to Camp Sunshine. So far, our team has raised $934, and we still have until February to keep fundraising.

If you would like to help our team reach our goal, you can donate here:

(Hint: donate to Jamie's page. I'm falling behind!)
