Charitable booksale for Emitos Girls Humanist FC, Uganda – Wednesday 9th Dec, London
There is a charitable booksale being hosted by the Central London Humanist Group on Wed 9th Dec, 4-9pm at Amnesty’s Human Rights Action Centre in Shoreditch (near Old St tube).
As well as many excellent second hand books (from Darwin’s Origin of Species to the Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy to Dawkins’ God Delusion to Obama’s The Audacity of Hope), the CLHG will also be selling several signed copies of new books including The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas by Ariane Sherine, Against the Faith: Some Deists, Sceptics and Atheists by Jim Herrick and On Humanism by Richard Norman. These have been kindly donated by their authors.
All profits raised will go to Emitos Girls Humanist Football Team, a project in Uganda which seeks to empower girls aged 12-20 years. In addition to providing the equipment and grounds to play football, the club also teaches its players humanist values, provides sexual and reproductive health educational workshops, challenges cultural attitudes and encourages girls to compete for opportunities alongside boys. You can find out more about Emitos here: http://www.charitygiving.co.uk/emitos
Please feel free to pop by for a few minutes or the whole evening – there will be wine, cakes, coffee and lots of interesting people to socialise with.
We’d also be very grateful if you could circulate this message to any friends/colleagues you think might be interested in attending or making a donation.
