I don't know how that donation collection is going, but have you considered donating to Haiti? I would actually donate something/more if it were for this. I would make a donation anyway

I would want my donation back if it were going to Haiti. I would donate to a local homeless shelter instead.

Since FES is donating a relatively small amount, $100-$200 dollars will be used a lot better, and get more done, by an animal shelter than it would in Haiti.

This.

Also, I would be very skeptical about donating to Haiti anyway unless I knew with absolute certainty the money was actually going to help the people and wouldn't just end up lining the pockets of their fucked up government.

Yeah, I'm under no illusions about where my bit to Haiti probably ended up. It was that the pictures were so mind-numbing and one knows one probably can't help the least bit. Oh well, maybe enough for half a bottle of water got through. Maybe.

You could donate through Non-Believers Giving Aid.  The money will go to Doctors Without Borders and/or the International Red Cross.  http://givingaid.richarddawkins.net/
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

I was watching CNN at the doctor's office the other day as they were reporting on the tragedy of how many people can't give loved ones funerals, since trucks are taking rubble and bodies and burying it all together.

I don't see how that's a tragedy. Why waste money on the dead when there are living people suffering?

The only part of the funeral they care about is the part where they get to say goodbye to their family.

Are you haitian and deeply rooted in their culture? Saying goodbye to a large expanse of land where your family member/loved one MIGHT be buried isn't the same.

In this case, I think it's irrational to expend energy on cultural idiosyncracies when there is so much else worth saving.

Giving to a local homeless shelter in the name of The Flat Earth Society would be a way of helping people in need and bringing notice to the Society.
