Hello fans of the About Time Project

PayPal ButtonPayPal Button

2024 is quickly approaching, and as we are a 501(c)3 organization we would benefit from your help replenishing our costs from 2023 as well as supplying the funds we will need for 2024.

Our Activities

We have big plans for 2024. But we could use a helping hand.

 

About Time supports the work of dozens of volunteers through its status as a non-profit charity (a 501(c)3 in the U.S.). Your donation helps the skeptic movement bring people together, get critical information to millions of people and make psychic mediums look over their shoulder.

 

We get big results with very little, so every one of your dollars counts.

An all-volunteer organization: Nobody draws a salary. Just dozens of volunteers giving thousands of hours to the projects.

Stretching every dollar: We got started with an award from the James Randi Educational Foundation in 2017. Thanks to your continued support, we’re able to make it last.

Monterey County SkeptiCamp

We’ve skipped a year after our very successful Zoom SkeptiCamp in 2022, instead opting for a series of hands-on online workshops. We will be holding our first post lockdown in person event on January 5-7, 2024 in Seaside CA. We do not charge for this event, but we are asking for donations to supplement our costs.

 

Full schedule here – please join us !

Wikipedia

Disinformation was one of the year’s big stories. It’s not going away, be we can counter it through pre-bunking and fact-checking on the world’s largest information platform.

Nobody works harder at double-checking sources and making sure Wikipedia pages line up with reality than our multilingual volunteer editors. Their work has been seen 154.5 million times since the project began, adding close to 2 million pairs of eyeballs per month across more than 2,000 topics.

Scholarship 

In 2023 we awarded two $500 scholarships which allowed two of our team members to attend QED in Manchester, England

In 2024 we hope to award six $500 scholarships to various conferences around the world.

Visiting the troops

The pandemic hit the skeptics movement hard, dissolving groups and dispersing volunteers. In collaboration with the Center of Inquiry, I’ve been traveling to several areas to help bring those groups back on their feet. Here is an article on the Pacific North West tour and to a trip to Los Angeles.

 

I don’t need to tell you how much the skeptic movement has to contribute in these critical times. Your donations allow me to visit those groups and keep them connected.

Speaking of social events, if you are looking for a fun way to meet new skeptics, join us every Thursday night for Social Trivia – Article here!

I hope that I’ve given you enough reasons to help us financially with our mission if you can. I leave you with my thanks even if you can’t. We are doing what we can to grow our community and fight back against the magical thinking that permeates our world. Thank you for any support you can give. Paypal Link

See you in 2024

 

For 2024, we all want a community that promotes science and pushes back against magical thinking. Thank you for your efforts and for any support you can give us.

 

Yes, I still host the weekly Social Trivia. You’re all welcome to participate.

 

Thank you, everyone,

Susan Gerbic
