The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.

With a fact-based approach that brings together a variety of faith-based communities and non-"believers", the Texas Freedom Network works tireless to keep science education in schools, and to make sure religious extremists don't turn Texas into a Christianized Taliban-like state. I volunteered and donated to TFN within weeks of arriving in Texas as a resident, and continued to support them while living abroad. Most of their work is done through volunteers, and many of those volunteers are Christians themselves -- pepole outraged with those who are trying to monopolize the religion and force it upon others. I'm proud to support TFN.
