I’ve already encouraged you all to sign up for the Light the Night walks across the nation — where atheists are coming together to raise $1,000,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Todd Stiefel has done the same:

Now, Richard Dawkins is getting in on the action:

I am proud to say that the US branch of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science (RDFRS) is an official supporter of the project, and I am also delighted to learn that FBB has decided that their 2012 effort will be dedicated to the memory of my friend Christopher Hitchens. Details of the project can be found here. I encourage all non-believers to go to this site and donate, or better yet, join the team as a fundraiser to multiply the power of our efforts.

He’s the atheist Pope, so we have to do what he says!
Also, we’re good, kind, generous people who want to band together to show that atheists don’t conform to the stereotypes pastors have made up about them. We can and will help people in the here and now instead of waiting for some non-existent afterlife. (You can join a team here!)
Also, atheist Pope!!!
Need more incentive? It’s Light the Night Registration Week!

An anonymous donor will give $1 to LLS for every new walker registered during Registration Week. If we meet our goal of 5,000 new walkers, LLS will receive $10,000, thanks to matching by the Stiefel family!
In addition, every person who is signed up for a team by July 14th will have their name put in for a drawing to win a Kindle Fire. This includes people who have already registered for a team prior to Registration Week.
There is also a promotion just for team captains! The team captain who gets the most number of new members signed up to their team during the Registration Week a $50 American Express gift card!
