It’s hard to believe, but on August 16, 2013, Freethought Society (FS) founder and president Margaret Downey will be turning 63!
We, the officers of FS, can think of no better way to honor Margaret on her birthday than by helping to provide much-needed funds to keep FS going strong. We are asking you, our wonderful supporters, to contribute towards this birthday gift from our community. Any amount, large or small, will be very much appreciated. If each person reading this donated just $2, together we would reach our goal of collecting $6,300.
Improving the financial condition of FS will be a wonderful gift for a person who has done so much to promote freethought! Remember, your donation to FS is tax-deductible (EIN #23-2738574).

Why are we so proud of Margaret? She has been an activist in promoting equal rights for all, and especially the separation of religion and government, for almost 30 years. She has been a plaintiff in two legal cases: Margaret Downey-Schottmiller v. The Chester County Council of the Boy Scouts of America and Freethought Society of Greater Philadelphia v. Chester County. Despite receiving hate mail, a campaign that tried to force her to leave town, and death threats for her outspokenness, Margaret has tirelessly worked to advance the ideals of freethought. She has established national committees such as The Anti-Discrimination Support Network, The Thomas Paine Memorial Committee, Helping Hands, The Tree of Knowledge, and so much more.
Margaret is also a good-will ambassador within the nontheist community, sharing ideas and projects, and serving on the boards (past and present) of the American Humanist Association, the Robert Green Ingersoll Birthplace Museum, and the Freedom From Religion Foundation. She has spoken at many conferences and has worked on projects with the Center for Inquiry, The James Randi Educational Foundation, and many other skeptic, atheist, humanist and freethought groups. She is the editor of and frequent contributor to the FS newsletter, The Freethought Society News, and she is a contributing author in the books Parenting Beyond Belief and 50 Voices of Disbelief.
Join with us to show Margaret how much we all appreciate her efforts. Your donation will enable FS to continue her presidential work as an advocate on our behalf, including media appearances, educational presentations and many other duties.
Please help us meet or exceed our goal! Thank you very much for your support.
