I Love How This Hospital Thanked a Group of Atheists for Donating Gifts to Patients

Last month, as part of their “War on Christmas” campaign, the Minnesota Atheists donated two carloads worth of toys and gifts to patients at the Children’s Hospital of Minnesota.

Group President Eric Jayne just got a thank you note from the hospital. It reads like a typical form letter until you get to the second paragraph…

… Your philanthropic gift, in support of the Child Life Program, makes a significant difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

Please accept our heartfelt appreciation for your generous gift given in memory of not believing in Jesus to Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

That’s the greatest thing ever.

Jayne suggests, though, that this is probably not the result of someone at the hospital with a good sense sense of humor:

… the line was likely included because when the gifts were dropped off the group of godless gift-givers wrote “not believing in Jesus” under the In Memory of line on the gift donation form. That part of the letter was probably [formatted] with the help of the hospital’s mail merge software.

Maybe.

Okay, probably.

But it’s still entertaining.
