We’re proud to announce the return of Vulgarity for Charity, running between September 15th and 25th, 2016. This time, we’re teaming up with Tom and Cecil from the Cognitive Dissonance Podcast to help raise money and awareness for a phenomenal charity that helps combat poverty by helping people keep from falling into the poverty cycle in the first place.
Modest Needs has been combating poverty in the US and Canada for almost fifteen years, and their forward thinking take on crowdfunding makes it easier and more effective than ever to help people in need. Learn more about them here.
What is Vulgarity for Charity?
It’s a biannual fundraiser where we trade insults for donations. You donate to Modest Needs, then let us know that you did, and who you’d like insulted, and Eli, Heath, Tom, Cecil, and Noah will turn their powers of vulgarity to the forces of good.
How do I Play Along?
First, go to ModestNeeds.org and make a donation of $20 or more. You can either donate to the charity itself, or you can click on the “Browse Requests for Help” and choose the family you’d like to donate your money to.
When you receive your receipt via email, forward proof of your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know who you’d like us to insult on your behalf.
And as an added bonus, if you donate $50 or more, we’ll put your name in a drawing for a special celebrity guest insult.
When do I get my Insult?
We’ll be broadcasting all the insults live in a special two part, cross-podcast event on The Scathing Atheist and Cognitive Dissonance. The first round of insults will air on Cognitive Dissonance on Monday, September 26th; and the second round will take place on The Scathing Atheist on Thursday, September 29th.
If I send my email after the fundraiser is over, will you still insult somebody for me?
Sorry, but if you want an on-air insult, proof of your donation must be received by midnight eastern on Sunday, September 25th.
Special Thanks to The Foundation Beyond Belief for all their help coordinating this fundraiser.
