Faith to Faithless (with help thanks to the BHA) want to host at least 8 events this year across the UK, editing and uploading all our events on YouTube. We have done 3 recorded events in the last 6 months. Our events and videos are a fantastic way to reach out to young people who have left their faith whether they have left Islam, Hassidic Judaism, Conservative Baptist, Jehovah's Witness, etc. Its important young people understand that they aren't alone when they leave their faith and that they can live fulfilling lives as humanists without religion.
Our events and videos have reached >200,000 people and we've been featured in 2 BBC documentaries and in 5 major papers from around the world. Here's our YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/faithtofaithless.
Although we are small, we're very ambitious and with your help we can reach more people than ever. But we can only do that if you give generously today! We know our work changes lives (plenty of thank you emails), so please give what you can to our important cause.
Our events have been hosted by and attended by well known humanists,
atheists and secularists including Dr. Arif Ahmed, A. C. Grayling and Kate Smurthwaite. We want to continue attracting support from humanists from all backgrounds while also reaching out to religious communities to promote acceptance of apostasy. Our "coming out" videos receive many positive emails and comments from religious people. We know we can change how apostates are viewed by their faith communities.
People who leave their faith need to feel less alone. They should never feel like they are the only one or feel hopeless. By reaching our target of £3,500 we'll be able to host up to 8 events and put more than 25 new videos on YouTube in 2016. Can you help us out?
All money donated will be "restricted" for the use of Faith to Faithless activities and go via the British Humanist Association (BHA), one of the biggest humanist organisation in the globe with over 40,000 members. If for any reason, we need to change our event plans, all the money donated will be used for charitable activities to help people who have left their faith.
If we raise more than £3,500, we'll do even more events and create more resources for people leaving their faith. We told you we're ambitious!
