Help Humanist Charities raise funds for humanitarian relief following the February 22 earthquake about 8 miles southeast of the Christchurch city center. The earthquake was a magnitude of 6.3, and left over 100 dead and 200 still missing. Among the missing are nearly 100 international students at an English language school, believed to be trapped under the rubble of their school building.. Amid the loss of life and damage to infrastructure, the artesian water supply in New Zealand has been affected, as has the electricity supply, sewer system, roads, and communications networks.
Your donations to Humanist Charities will be sent to the New Zealand Association of Rationalists and Humanists, whose active Christchurch branch will ensure the funds reach those with the most need of humanitarian relief in the wake of this disaster. As an Incorporated Society, the NZARH has experience handling contributions and distributing them to particularly humanist causes and efforts.
All donations to Humanist Charities of the American Humanist Association are tax-deductible. Five percent (5%) of your contribution will be reserved for credit card fees and administrative purposes.
