I donated my tenner this morning, but I’ve been keeping an eye on the Atheist Bus’ Just Giving page all the same.
When I donated, the Â£5,500 target had already been met. At the time of writing, the target had hit Â£20,300 and counting.
My only concern is that with this coming in the run up to Christmas, it will almost certainly be used as a hook to pin the “atheists want to ban Christmas” annual story on the media donkey once again. Can I suggest that a small footnote is made at the bottom to the effect of “* And have a happy Christmas, too!”?
UPDATE: I’ve since been informed that the poster campaign is due to start in January, so that kills that idea.
