Campaign Raises over $10,000

We’re pleased to announce that our campaign has reached a remarkable fundraising milestone of $10,000. ¬†Although we are still a long way from our eventual goal of $50,000, we are more optimistic than ever about keeping this campaign going for a while yet and using it to spark discussion about belief and non-belief.

Thank you to everyone that has supported our campaign so far, and, as always, stay tuned for more later this week.

On an unrelated note: sometime in the next two weeks (probably on a lazy Saturday) we will be moving the site over to a new host that should better cope with traffic spikes; there may be a small amount of downtime, so we apologize in advance.

South Bend Transpo Ads Are Up

transpo-ads Hey everyone! Our ads in South Bend are now up! After a delay that was surrounded with much controversy, South Bend, Indiana residents will finally see this message on transit buses as part of the most recent advertising push by the Indiana Atheist Bus Campaign.

Originally, the ads were scheduled to coincide with President Obama’s appearance at Notre Dame’s commencement ceremony, but but were held up when the South Bend bus company, Transpo, claimed that the ad needed approval by a special board meeting. At their meeting, which took place after President Obama and the national press had left South Bend, the board acknowledged that Transpo had posted ads on buses from religious organizations in the past and thus they had no legal grounds to deny the atheist ads.

The ads are now on 20 of Transpo’s 48 buses, and they will remain posted for the next several weeks.
