Season of Reason 2010

Although I'm no longer President of the James Randi Educational Foundation, I'm still a strong supporter! They are continuing the fight against unreason, and have been venturing quite strongly in the field of education, something I endorse whole-heartedly. So I'm very pleased to let y'all know about the 2010 Season of Reason donation drive. This annual drive means a lot to the JREF, which is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (tax-deductible, folks!).

Even better, an anonymous and very generous donor has offered to match all donations up to $100,000! So every buck you give does double duty.

And even better even better, when you donate $100 or more (or pledge to give an ongoing $25/month or more) you'll get a cool tree ornament designed by Surly Amy -- which is hanging from my tree in Chez BA in a place of honor:


[Yeah, I have Enterprise-D and Klingon Bird of Prey ornaments -- they light up, too, and it's perfectly OK for you to seethe in jealousy of my awesomeness.]

So if you're looking for a year-end deduction, or just want to do a good deed, then please donate what you can. Make this a true Season of Reason.
