Giving Thanks PDF Print E-mail
Newsflash
Written by James Randi   

James RandiDear Friend,

As Thanksgiving approaches here in the United States, and we gather with loved ones, I can't help but pause and reflect on the work we do at the JREF, and how grateful we all are for the support from folks like yourself.

Concerned and dedicated skeptics and science advocates like you drive all the work we do combatting unreason and promoting critical thinking at the grassroots, in classrooms, at conferences, in the media, and on our speaking tours.

And as we look to the year ahead, I know that our work will continue to be difficult. Promoting skepticism is in many ways an uphill battle — but it is so worthwhile. And I also know that with your continued support we are ready for the challenges ahead.

So from all of us at the JREF, and from my family to yours, I want to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.

Sincerely,

Randi's signature

James Randi

Latest JREF News
Written by Sharon Hill   

Hi everyone:

Another excellent TAM is in the books. As Randi announced in his closing remarks, exciting times for the organization are ahead. 

It's not news that the randi.org website is overdue for a makeover. The JREF is working on that as a high priority. I've just come on board as a Creative Consultant for the organization. (You may know me as the editor of Doubtful News. You can see my bio here.) Loads of unique and exciting content from new contributors will be forthcoming. Bear with us while we build the new platform and expand content. 

To anticipate the new online presence, the JREF Facebook and Twitter accounts will be revamped. Please accept our apologies for changing the follow lists and formatting as we streamline and clean up older material. The social network feeds will carry important information about the organization, messages to the public, event announcements, website content links, outside links of interest, and occasional responses to questions and comments. Please continue to Tweet interesting news links and your skeptical event announcements to the JREF twitter account @jref.

If you have any particular questions, concerns, or requests email them to me at sharon@randi.org. 

Thank you for your past support and stay tuned... what's ahead will be Amazing!
