Children of the Border

Hey all,

We know that everyone has been very busy with concerns regarding the BP oil spill and assorted effects it has had on our Gulf Coast community.

Our friend Sebastian recently wrote us to remind everyone of the efforts of Humanists still helping those suffering in Haiti.

We encourage everyone to keep them in your thoughts and if you are able...please consider a donation to this heartfelt Humanist effort ~ Children of the Border.

Dear Steve:

We sent you a letter last week asking for help from your local
organization (The Great Southern Humanist Society ) for our projects in Haiti and
the Dominican Republic.

Did you receive it? If not, could you please let us know so that we can
update your address and send you a copy? I have also attached a PDF copy
in case you want to forward it to other members of the group.

At the bottom of this message I included some relevant links where you
can get information about our projects, and a PDF copy of a brochure we
prepared for the 69th American Humanist Association annual conference.
