A virtual meetup, fundraising for reason...
Fellow LAAGer, Womble, from SkepticTV is organising this annual fundraiser. "Our charity this year is the well deserving Sense About Science, specifically their 'Ask for evidence' campaign."
LAAG is delighted to support this event as it is exactly in line with PROMOTION and CELEBRATION of reason ...what we're about. (From Sense about Science's site):
Evidence matters in many of the decisions we make - as patients, consumers, voters and citizens. If you want to know whether a claim made in a policy, newspaper article, advert or product is backed by scientific evidence, ask the people making the claim to provide it.

It would be great if you could please ask any friends on facebook etc. to help support this campaign.
