What is S.H.A.R.E.?

Secular Humanist Aid and Relief Effort (S.H.A.R.E.)

Although there are some who think that individuals who are secular humanists are materialistic, we know that is not the case. Many people who are not religious are frustrated that so many charitable organizations, especially those that help people afflicted by natural or human disasters, are sponsored by religious organizations. These organizations sometimes proselytize to the people in need of their services. This is entirely unacceptable to secular humanists.

About twenty years ago, the Secular Humanist Aid and Relief Effort or S.H.A.R.E. was developed to provide an alternative for those who wish to contribute to such Effort but to do so without the intermediary of a religious organization. S.H.A.R.E. is a program of the Council for Secular Humanism, which for 29 years has been the leading organization promoting the rights and values of secular humanists in the U.S. and abroad.
