Humanists at risk
on: June 21, 2019, 12:54

This shows the scale of the problems presented by organised religion...

Our work with "humanists at risk" encompasses:

- people accused of 'blasphemy' and 'apostasy'
- people facing direct threats to their lives or security
- human rights defenders facing harassment or prosecution

Globally, the non-religious often face immense prejudice and marginalization....

The gofundme "tip" request of 15% seems extremely excessive to me. It may be my ignorance but 1% seems a bit high but more normal. It rather put me off until I understood such requests are normal for such sites.

Justgiving insists on at least 5%, so by comparison, gofundme is very good in not insisting on any contribution whatsoever.
