On November 5, I wrote an article about Anne Gaylor for the Atlanta Atheism Examiner. In it, I described her decades old foundation which provides funds for women who cannot afford abortions. (Think about it… if they can’t afford an abortion, can they afford a child?!) She has been doing this charitable work almost entirely by herself for over 30 years, and is funded by private donations only.
The article I wrote is part of a contest called “America Inspired.” Currently, we are in the nomination phase. If chosen for the final round, we will have the option to vote for Anne. If she receives the most votes, she will receive $50,000 for her charity.
Step one is making it to the final round. As I write this article, there are just over 1,200 “thumbs up” on the page. Let’s take this Thanksgiving week to try to get to 5,000. Since the subject matter is controversial, we want to ensure that the staff at Examiner has no choice but to pick this article as a finalist. It’s not good enough to just be popular. We must make it the most popular article.
If you’d like to help me achieve this goal, here’s what you do:
STEP 1: Go to the webpage: CLICK HERE (It will open in a new window.)
STEP 2: On the upper left is a Facebook “Like” button. Click it.
STEP 3: Underneath that are three more buttons: “Send,” “Tweet,” and “Share.” If you can, do all three of these.
STEP 4: If you’d like to email it to lots of your friends, there’s an EMAIL button as well.
STEP 5: If you are registered with any social media sites like Stumbleupon, Digg, Reddit, or Linkedin, share on those sites.
STEP 6: For the remainder of this week, repeat steps 3-5 as often as possible.
The whole process will take less than ten minutes, and if you help me by encouraging all of your friends to do the same thing, we can make this article HUGE. I can’t think of anything else you can do for ten minutes a day that could have such an amazing impact on so many people’s lives. A $50,000 donation could change the lives of 100 women in dire need.
Let’s make this a year of exceptional charity for non-believers so we will stand in sharp contrast to the misogyny and hate being spewed towards women by so many believers around the country. Let’s be a force for great good.
