Feb. 15th, 2015 - Cheering at Special Olympics Basketball Tournament


Humanists Doing Good will be cheering on athletes participating in the Special Olympics Basketball Tournament. We are asking everyone to bring large signs of support and come down to cheer for the athletes. We typically look for the games with the least amount of fan support and then cheer our lungs out for those games. Since this is a tournament, we're not able to provide an exact end time. If you are unable to stay for the full event, we still encourage you to come down for as long as you can be there.

Please wear your yellow volunteer shirts, if possible, but if you don't have a shirt we ask that you not let that stop you from joining us. We'll meet in recreation center gym, where opening ceremonies will take place at 8:15 am. You may want to consider bringing a lunch.

When: Sunday, February 15th from 8:30 am until approximately 3:30 pm (you can stay for as long or short as you need)

Where: Hamilton Recreational Center Gymnasium at CMU

Jan. 17th, 2014 - Women Are The Change

Humanists Doing Good will be showing Women Are The Change, a brief documentary about how the education of women can change a continent. The film features ordinary girls from Sub-Saharan Africa struggling with the traumas of war, loss of innocence and loss of parents and showcases their transformation into extraordinary women. The documentary was produced by one of our members, Linda Stout. Linda will be present to answer questions and speak about the documentary and the women it follows.

This film grew out of Linda's passion to empower women to become leaders and policy makers. Originally, she sponsored a small program in the U.S. for African women to teach them leadership skills and to give them a wider view of their place in the world. 

Linda was so inspired by knowing the women who attended her program that she decided to film a documentary about them so that others could know their stories.

The film includes interviews and scenes in rural villages as the story unfolds of how educated women give back to their communities.

This showing is free and open to the public.
