This auction is part of Secular Student Alliance week, which is being done by several bloggers who are raising money for the Secular Student Alliance, a non-profit organization for atheist, agnostic and otherwise freethinking students. This is part of Kelley Freeman's, aka Ramen Needles (http://ramenneedles.com), contribution.
I am participating in Secular Student Alliance week! Lots of fantastic bloggers from over at Freethought Blogs will be hosting crazy amounts of blogging to raise money for the Secular Student Alliance to help them finish up their match with Jeff Hawkins and Janet Strauss (which you can read about here). However, rather than doing crazy amounts of blogging, I am participating in a way that I am actually good at - yes, I will be CROCHETING ridiculous amounts the next ten days!
I will be posting a new item every day until 6/16 and the proceeds will go to the Secular Student Alliance, which is ABSOLUTELY my favorite secular organization (Camp Quest is also up there, don't worry)!
Today's item is the logo from the biggest community of atheists/agnostics on the internet (I believe): r/atheism! R/atheism is a subreddit on the massively popular website, reddit.com. They have helped out students in the past and gotten high schoolers that needed help in touch with the SSA, so I guess this is a tiny way to say thanks to r/atheism for supporting the SSA! The logo is modeled after Russell's teapot and is super cute. :D To check out r/atheism, you can go to reddit.com/r/atheism.
Facts about this particular item:
He is crocheted from mostly cotton yarn, save for the 'tea' which is a bamboo/wool blend.
He is stuffed with polyester stuffing.
His antenna is removal.
His face is fabric paint.
I guess he's about six inches across? He's pretty cute regardless.
Feel free to contact me with any questions!
