Keeping you up to date with our board meeting discussions!
We are getting ever closer to our bus ad goal, with designs falling into place and funding going well. We’re still about $1000 short, so every small amount will bring us closer now. You can donate on our merchandise/membership tab. We’ve also given ourselves a deadline of August 31st for our design, so we will be submitting and looking for approval from Ad Standards Canada on that date.
This is one example of a design we’re playing around with, this was done quickly with free clip art images, so could be refined by taking more time to look for images. Have a design for us?
We’re selling Grey T-shirts at 50% off. Grab a bargain for $10 (while they last) and be a walking advertisment for atheism. If you are interested in purchasing one (we have medium and large sizes available) they will be available at upcoming book club and roundtable events, or you can let us know via email or on the facebook group page.
We’ve been approached by someone from Alpha Canada, and were wondering if anyone would like to take this course? It’s free, we would meet every week for a 2-3 hour presentation and it lasts for 8 weeks. If you are interested please let one of the board know so we can decide if we want to go ahead.
Other than that, we’ve been talking about more outreach events, like Ask An Atheist day at churches or even holding our own Atheism 101 class that would be open to the public and answer general questions about what being an atheist is. Do you have an idea of where we can do outreach?
