Posted: Tue, June 12, 2018 | By: Humanism

The redditors at the subreddit “exchristian” have suddenly become wonderful philanthropists for the Brighter Brains Institute.

In less than 12 hours, they sponsored 15 orphans at Mother Givers Humanist School in the village of Buhanga, Uganda. Additionally, they provided two teacher salaries, lunch food for 250 children, and 3,600 condoms!

An orphan sponsorship ($48) pays for tuition, plus books, school supplies, school uniform, and lunch (corn meal, vegetables, beans, and occasional goat and chicken meat).

Redditors on other subreddits have been very generous to BBI activities in the past. Two years ago, a water tank ($500) for Buhanga was paid for by a Reddit/r/Atheism individual.

Thank you, Reddit, for your generous support!
