Skepticon is officially taking a controversial stance on typhoons: typhoons are bad. Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) is beyond awful.
You can help in two big ways at Skepticon.
This Friday at 1PM, Dale McGowan, founder of Foundation Beyond Belief is skyping in to Skepticon’s main stage to talk about the typhoon and how the humanist community is coming together to help with this and other disasters in the future. Expect hats to be passed at the event, but you don’t have to wait to contribute, click here.
If you’re short on cash and still want to help, next door to Skepticon is an event called Meals a Million. There you will be able to pack meals that fight hunger around the world. This year, they are sending a portion of its food to the Philippines as part of the relief effort. Space is very limited, but to help keep them working at capacity, Skepticon’s volunteers will be announcing opportunities to get involved.
