Atheist Nexus member Dannyisme
started a discussion on secular charities
on his Atheist Nexus journal. I'm wondering if we can add to his list, either here or on his blog.
Just in case Dannyisme's journal disappears now that he's deleted his profile, I'm going to copy-and-paste as much as I can here, as well as listing links.

"Felch made a comment on my previous blog post: "Is there a database of certified-non-lunatic secular charities anywhere ? If not, why not ? And if not, shouldn't we make one?"
He listed one, Medecins sans Frontieres
, to which I added Teachers without borders
. That's two. So let's make a list. Please add to the list and give a very brief description of what the group does
. (Emphasis mine)
1. Médecins Sans Frontières
: a secular humanitarian-aid non-governmental organization best known for its projects in war-torn regions and developing countries facing endemic disease.
2. Teachers without Borders
: supports teacher leaders, worldwide, with professional development opportunities and tools that connect them with information and each other so that they may play a more vital role in their communities.
3. Engineers without Borders
: supports community-driven development programs worldwide through the design and implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while fostering responsible leadership.
4. City Harvest
: the world’s first food rescue organization, collects 23 million pounds of excess food from restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers and farms and delivers it free of charge to more than 600 community food programs throughout New York City.
Please add ..."
