Thank you everyone, all over the world for your support and donations. We exceeded our goal by just a few dollars and have decided how it will be allocated. We will donate $5,106.47 to the Murrow Indian Children's Home in Muskogee, Oklahoma. The rest of the money will go to Camp Quest Oklahoma. Seeing as how this is my first venture on GoFundMe, I don't know the exact amount that will be going to Camp Quest Oklahoma due to the more than $3,500 in taxes and fees that are being taken out by GoFundMe. All of you have proven that love wins over bigotry. Thank you!

Hello everyone. It appears the stubbornness of the Board of Trustees at the Murrow Indian Children's Home has backfired for the last time. Yesterday I spoke with a representative at the Murrow Home via phone and I was told that they will refuse the donation of $5,106.47 whether I donate anonymously or through a local church. I even tried calling the electric company and the water company here in Muskogee to try and pay their bill(s) for them in the amount of $5,106.47 but those companies both said that I have to have their account number, which I do not have.
Therefore, it is with a very small amount of reluctance that I will now announce that we are donating all of the money to CampQuest Oklahoma.
I'm sure it comes as no shock to anyone in the world that religious greed has prevailed once again.
We tried.

The entire amount will be deposited into my wife Keli's personal bank account. Once the money hits our account, we will have cashier's checks made for each organization.
All of you have proven that love wins over bigotry. Thank you!

We are going to give all but $5,000 of the money to Camp Quest Oklahoma. The remaining $5,000 will be anonymously donated to the Murrow Indian Children's Home. If they find out that I've said this and they know that it's me anonymously donating it and they still won't accept it, we will donate it to a local church who will then donate it to them. We've had support from churches all over this nation today and I'm sure that one of them would be glad to donate the money to Murrow and I trust that they will. Whether the Murrow Home likes it or not, they are getting $5,000 for those children from all of this. Keli and I would like to thank everyone for their donations and support. We will continue to let the GoFundMe account rise until it stops.

Theists do not have a monopoly on compassion and charitable giving.

Because, as an atheist, I do not need the promise of heaven or threat of hell to be a good person.

It's great to see such an outreach of support for these kids, but it's never surprising in the secular community. We are the givers without expectation of reward.
