No, not me.
Greta Christina has been writing amazing stuff on skepticism, feminism, and LGBTQ topics for years. She’s been an inspiration to me for a long time. When I was coming to terms with my own atheism, and with dealing with tragedy without any belief in gods, it was Greta’s writing that I turned to time and again. She was one of the people who helped me most in working out how to see this fragile, temporary life as beautiful and meaningful.
She’s also a badass who’s never been slow to kick verbal ass when needed.
And now she needs our help. Just weeks after the death of her father, Greta’s been diagnosed with cancer. Fortunately, it’s a kind of cancer that she’ll probably recover from. Unfortunately, she’s going to be unable to work for some time while she’s going through treatment. Since she’s self-employed, this could lead to serious financial worries for her.
If there’s anything you can give to help, please do. She’s not just looking for donations- encouragement, kind (religion-free, please) words, stories of how you’ve gotten through something similar. Anything to make this time easier for Greta and her family. And please do spread the word on whatever platform you have. Let’s give something back to her and show that we’ve got her back.
