Oct. 9th, 2014 - Un-Homeless Project

Help us collect useful and clean household items for donation to local people in need who are starting fresh in new home environments. Humanists Doing Good is working with local area service providers who are donating their storage space and will make the final delivery of all donated items based on individual needs. Nearly anything you think of that would be useful to somebody starting a new home can be donated. Yard sale leftovers, garage treasures, Goodwill finds, kitchen utensils, pots & pans, Craigslist freebies and more are welcome, but we must stress that everything needs to be CLEAN, functional and ready to use upon arrival. You will need to transport all items you intend to donate to a storage location near the Grand Junction library.

When: Thursday, Oct. 9th from 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Where: Address will be emailed to those who RSVP on our meetup site or you can call 970-623-2598 for more information.

Sept. 25th, 2014 - Flying Spaghetti Monster Dinner

Wondering what the heck is this Flying Spaghetti Monster thing all about? And what is this thing called "pastafarianism" anyway? Well, we'd love to have you join us for an evening of excellent spaghetti, meatballs, and madness to find out (and yes, we'll have vegetarian sauce too). We'll be cooking up some delicious food, learning about the Flying Spaghetti Monster and playing some games. Pirate themed items/costumes are encouraged (feel free to ask why) and we'll probably do a pirate-related activity or two. Believe it or not, the Flying Spaghetti Monster actually has relevance to the debates surrounding evolution and creationism and we'll be learning about that as well. If you have ideas for the gathering, we'd love to hear them. Children and guests are welcome to attend. If you would like to help make the dinner to help out, please contact us and let us know. Cost of the dinner will be $5 per person ($15 total for families of 3 or more) and fund will be used to benefit HDG.

When: Thursday, Sept. 25th

Where: Garden Room at The Commons (625 27 1/2 Road, GJ)

Sept. 20th, 2014 - UniversiTea: The Islamic State & Radical Islam


Our discussion topic for this UniversiTea will be the rise of the Islamic State and radical Islam. We will begin by seeding the discussion by watching an excellent and informative news documentary (45 minutes long) created by journalists who were embedded with the Islamic State in Raqqa, Syria. As the United States prepares to ramp up its military strikes against the Islamic State and up to 31,500 of its fighters, it is important to gain a further understanding of this situation and the people involved. After watching the video, we will explore topics such as whether or not it is disingenuous for our President to claim that we are not fighting Islam, the plight of moderate Muslims, problems of western intervention, the root causes of extremism and more. The documentary does contain some graphic content that is not be suitable for children.

As usual, we will provide a variety of teas and you are welcome to bring snacks for the discussion.

When: Saturday, Sept. 20th from 10:00 am - Noon

Where: Garden Room at The Commons (625 27 1/2 Road, GJ)
