I Picked a Winner and Wouldn’t You Know It… August 31, 2010

I Picked a Winner and Wouldn’t You Know It…

Last week, I held an online fundraiser for the Secular Student Alliance with the grand prize being a special copy of I Sold My Soul on eBay with the signatures of several atheist leaders and celebrities within our movement.

Over the weekend, I randomly selected a winner. I emailed the person to congratulate him and let him know he had won.

He responded with this:

… I am very delighted to win, but I found Richard Wade’s comment too sensible, and would request that you put it up for direct auction with proceeds going to the SSA.

The winner also chose to remain anonymous, too. (How generous is that?! I The current high bid is $475 (TIED). (I’ll update that number as needed.) The bidding will end Sunday night!

And if you just want to give because the SSA is a great organization, that wouldn’t be such a bad thing, either 🙂

In case you need a reminder about the book…

The signers include:

Good luck! And thanks to the anonymous donor for his generosity!

"The Roman Catholic Church is the world's oldest network terrorist organization."

Fresno Bishop Cautions Catholics: COVID Vaccine ..."
"Why doesn't she just shoot the virus?"

Idaho Lt. Gov. Wants to Spend ..."
"Those are some sound technical questions of great importance. I don't know why you're asking ..."

Idaho Lt. Gov. Wants to Spend ..."
"Are you the sort of person who would curse a fig tree for being out ..."

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but seeing that “This credit card transaction will appear on your bill as ‘SECULARSTUD'” was prize enough for me.

    If you see a “Secular Stu” pop up in the comments, that will be me, I call dibs.

    Is there baby in secular stew?

  • The winner also chose to remain anonymous, too. (How generous is that?! I <3 awesome atheists.)

    What what what?! Atheists aren’t supposed to be capable of altruism. Haven’t you ever seen a William Lane Craig lecture??

  • Silent Service

    Who says all of Hemant’s fans are female?

    Oh sorry I guess I could have worded that better, I wasn’t saying that all his fans were female I was referring to them specifically (or at least trying to).

    Come to think of it I should have added gay males to that as well there has to be at least one on this site with a crush on Hemant.

    hmm…
