We’re really vamping things up with Atheists of Maine. We originally started out as just a Facebook group, but now we’ve been involved in newspaper interviews, we’ve had a couple of meetings (check our Facebook page), and now we’re expanding our operations with the creation of a cafepress store. We hope to become a 501(c)3 in the near future, but that remains to be seen. We also have a brand new blog.
The goal of opening this store is to raise funds to cover costs associated with IRS filings to become a 501(c)3. Of course, as I said, it remains to be seen if this happens. And why? Well, we don’t know what we’re going to have for funds. If we only end up raising $25, we may keep things lower key. I don’t see that happening, but it’s a possibility. However, no matter what we raise, all the money will go towards non-profit causes. That almost certainly means our filing costs, but worse comes to worst, we’ll just donate the money to the Red Cross or some local charity.
