Dave's goal in his time remaining is to be able to reach out to as many individuals and communities as possible, both religious and secular, to show value in this one life we do have without a need for an afterlife, to educate on the dangers of religious fundamentalism, and to promote a less judgmental, more tolerant worldview that does not condemn or shun others based on faith beliefs. All support from ( Patreon & Paypal) that Dave receives goes towards travel costs to meet with groups to have conversations around living and dying as an atheist. We greatly appreciate your financial support which enables Dave to continue this outreach while he is still able.
During a local ex-Christian meet-up that Dave attends, a woman was discussing how stressed she had been earlier from the issues she had been dealing with that day, but then had wondered if Dave would let life’s little annoyances bother him given his recent ALS diagnosis. Someone in the room cracked, “Yeah, what would Dave do?!” Everyone laughed... a welcomed comic relief in a room full of grief and shock regarding the recent news of Dave’s terminal illness. Afterward his friends hatched the idea of wearing a WWDD bracelet to show their solidarity for Dave and as a daily reminder for living this life for the moments. Click below for details on how to order a bracelet.
