February 2016 Update

Some updates regarding the latest developments in Humanists of Houston!

——————————

Tomorrow (Tuesday) is the first of five performances of Dialogues on Grace, a 75-minute Documentary Theater Play produced from interviews of over 50 Houstonians of all faiths, including several members of HOH! HERE is a video of one of the interviews used for the production, with HOH Board member Debby Williams (warning: deals with sensitive subject matter regarding the loss of a child).

Each of the five performances is on the HOH Calendar HERE.

NOTE: 14 Pews is generously providing a $5 discount off the price of admission at the door to anyone from HOH! Just say “Humanism rocks” at the door to qualify for the discount.

Humanist Magazine (the official magazine of the American Humanist Association) just published an article about the work that local chapters are doing in support of social justice, with several mentions of the work HOH has done over the past year!

HOH President Vic Wang will be interviewed live on KPFT Radio (90.1 FM) on Thursday March 3rd to talk about HOH! It will take place on the Open Journal morning show which starts at 8 AM, with the interview starting around 8:25 AM.

Registration for Camp Quest Texas, a secular/humanist Summer camp for kids, opens on March 1st, and while this year they will be holding TWO separate sessions, spots will likely fill up fast so be sure to register early to ensure a spot. Also, financial aid is available to families in need; you will just need to indicate that during the registration process.

After the success of the HOH float and booth at last year’s Houston Pride Festival, we’ve decided to do it again this year! We’ll be having a Pride planning committee meeting on March 6th, and anyone who is interested in helping in any capacity is invited to join and contribute your ideas!

And even if you can’t help out in person, we will also need help covering the costs of the booth and float, as well as all of our promotional materials we’ll be giving out at the festival, so any donations to help will be greatly appreciated.

——————————

We’ve just completed our second Monthly Gathering at Trini Mendenhall Community Center, and it’s a notable improvement from our old location at Bayland; however, unfortunately Harris County is no longer allowing for the collection of donations at their community centers, which includes Trini Mendenhall. We’re in the process of trying to appeal that rule, but until then our ability to collect donations to fund HOH will be severely hamstrung and we will be even more dependent on online donations to fund HOH activities. As always, all donations to HOH are 100% tax deductible and 100% of all donations go directly towards funding HOH.

—————————-

Another way to support HOH is through our ShopwithScrip program. You can buy gift cards to many stores, restaurants, etc. through the program at no extra cost, and a percentage of each card (in some cases a significant percentage) is automatically donated to HOH. It’s simple to join and costs nothing, and step-by-step instructions on how to join can be found on the HOH web site.

Be sure to follow HOH on YouTubeFacebook, and Twitter!

Thanks to everyone for being a part of HOH.
