Secular Humanist Charities?
Quite often I am asked why there are so few or even no specifically secular humanist charities. My answer? – when there are so many excellent, non-religious, inclusive charities I see no need to set up our own.
Most humanists prefer to work for good causes with others (of all faiths and none) and to donate time or money to charities that do not discriminate on grounds of religion (or non-religion) or promote one particular worldview. (Indeed, a more pertinent question might be why some religious people feel the need to work through religious charities rather than mainstream ones?
