If you’ve been looking for a chance to meet our staff, this weekend will offer two great opportunities to do so! No matter where you are in the contiguous United States, you can be guaranteed to be no more than 1,500 miles from an FBB event. What a good deal.
If you’re going to be out west between July 11 and 14, come to The Amazing Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada! Sponsored by the James Randi Educational Foundation, TAM will feature a keynote speech by Susan Jacoby as well as a variety of other speakers and panels geared toward the skeptic community. Sam Shore (FBB’s Light The Night team coordinator), Ellen Andrews (our summer membership intern), and Conor Robinson (director of the Pathfinders Project) will be chatting with attendees and answering questions at the FBB table, so be sure to stop by and say hi.
If a trip to the desert isn’t in your near future, you’re in luck! The Secular Student Alliance conference in Columbus, Ohio, July 12-14, will feature a number of past and current FBB interns and staff giving talks, including AJ Chalom (FBB’s humanist giving coordinator), Daniel Hay (our summer Beyond Belief Network intern), Hemant Mehta (FBB board president), and Jerry DeWitt (FBB board member). Don’t forget to visit our table and say hello to our staff!

Interesting approach…Join up!

It's simple but profound—empathy and compassion. I am proud to be able to bring news of this Foundation to my readers. --Avert Your Eye
Foundation Beyond Belief is demonstrating humanism at its best. --Digital Chum
The best part [of FBB membership] is sharing the experience with our children. We want them to help us figure out what our monthly contribution should be and where it should go. --Raising Three Thinkers
[My] kids watched the videos from War Child and Water for People. Learning happened. Humanitarianism happened. My children felt compassion for others and wanted to help. -- Learning from the Kitchen Table
A vital test of any humanist organization's humanism is its ability to help those in need, which the Foundation is doing so admirably. --Paul Kurtz Institute for Science and Human Values
The regular contribution [model] means that our total charitable giving will most certainly increase this year. --Amy Schirmer, member
I scrolled down the list of contribution levels until I hit one that hurts, just a little. But it's a good kind of hurt. --Peter Nothnagle, member
