Well Sandra,
I never received a reply. I did notice that the only day of the week they're closed is Sunday. I wonder if the owners are religious? Hopefully I didn't make an ass of myself by mistake.


Hi, I'm a newbie to this group and board. I'm pretty sure I know why they didn't contact you. While I certainly don't think you made an ass out of yourself at all, I believe that I did read that these folks are doing what they do as Christians.

To their credit, they are kind to the patrons, they don't require prayer before meals or anything silly like that, and they don't openly evangelize folks that I've seen. However, since they do this as what they believe to be an extension of their Christian faith, I tend to guess that they may not feel especially drawn to work with atheists.

I may be wrong on this or have it mixed up, but I *think* I read that they're Christians anyway.
I'm pretty sure this reply is coming awhile after the thread has probably died, but thought the information may be of interest.

Hi all. Obviously getting in on this late, but I think I found an answer to your question: http://www.archden.org/dcr//news.php?e=426&s=4&a=8936­ I found the link on the http://www.soallmayea...­ website under the "Press" tab. I think it's safe to say they're believes. Great idea though. Hope they're able to stay in business.

Although the soup kitchen idea didn't pan out, I'm interested in other ideas and helping in any way.

In Dallas, the Fellowship of Freethought group did a ton of charitable giving: once a month they got together to bake cookies for the nearby police and fire stations; "Cocktails for a Cause" to raise money via raffles for various organizations; adopt a highway road clean up; shoreline spruce up (picking up trash at various parks/lakes), etc.

I'd love to help if anyone has ideas.

Hello all,

I am new to this group and still feeling my way around. This sort of thing is the precise reason I wanted to reach out to others like you. When I was in Jr. High School (a lifetime ago) I was the co-chair of something called KEY Club. We did food and clothing drives, sold donuts to raise money, visited nursing homes, etc. I am missing this sort of thing from my life, and would love to lend a hand!

I would also be willing to give technical support, website/software development, etc. in addition to giving time.

If anyone makes some progress on a non-secular goodwill project, let me know...If I can, I can help document the project with photography, or at the least, high-quality portraits of the team. (pro-bono - so long as I can fit it in.)

Not all, but here's a link to some of my stuff...my client's portraits are kept private - so these are just a few random events.

-- ALSO ALSO --
I'd love to set up a time to take all your portraits (in one day if possible) -- My agenda there would be to be able to show the diversity of the group. and to give back what I can offer you guys/gals.

Cheers,
Jamie

I highly recommend *Stepping Stones Nigeria* as a worthy charity, especially for atheists. A documentary has recently been made on Stepping Stones' work to save Nigeria's "witch children." It's not for the faint-hearted, but very compelling:
