So, this week (June 6-16) is SSA Week. Now, you may be asking, isn’t that 10 days? Why yes, it is. We need a 10 day week to fit in all of the awesomeness.
The main goal of this awesomeness is to raise money and awareness to our cause. That being said, our little readership at the SSA@SCSU blog is not necessarily filled with billionaires. That Is why I am asking you to donate anything you can. Even if it is only a few dollars, or just a hashtag on twitter. Please help us make this a great SSAWeek.
Our blog will be posting 24 blogs today, 1 per hour, and I thought the best thing we could do to start off is for me to do a little introduction.
For starters we have:
Me, Ben SweaterVest Blanchard. I blog at TheSweaterVest.com and am a president of Secular Student Alliance at Saint Cloud State. I have an affinity for all things sciencey, and sweater-vests. Along with that, I am an avid secular activist, and I really hate dogma more than just about anything else. I am also trying to make the word science officially a verb, but that is another story.
Next we have:
Patrick Mefford. Patrick is a religious studies major, and our groups legendary interfaith panel moderator. He blogs at servileconformist.typepad.com/ and enjoys finding unique solutions to difficult problems. Finally, he is never afraid to call out anyone when they are wrong, even if they are on his side.
Kate Appleby. Kate is my protégé and this year’s communications/PR chair for SSA@SCSU. She is studying Mass Communications with emphases in Advertising and Public Relations. Along with that, she has been keeping up a daily blog for almost 900 consecutive days at 2011-and-beyond.blogspot.com/.
Next up is:
Lindsay Giacomino. Lindsay is a recent grad and current trilinguist. She holds the record for the most times I have stumbled over her last name, and is one of the most well traveled in our group. She describes her quest in life as “always on the search for knowledge, happiness, truth and meaning in my life.”
And last, but not least, is:
Grant Norman. Grant is our resident Atheist in a foxhole. He also serves as our resident Cthulhu priest, and reminds us to repent so that we may be eaten first. He has been in our group for a few years now, and is one of the most active members we have. Finally, he is a big fan of The Doctor, but WHO isn’t?
See what I did there. I pulled a funny!
So, over the next day, please consider donating money, or at least sharing our blog and hashtag #SSAWeek. For more info please visit http://www.secularstudents.org/ssaweek or to donate Visit here. Thanks for your support, and see you soon!
