Friends,

If you really believe that pushing back against the purveyors of harmful nonsense is a fight worth having, then we need your help today.

Like most non-profits, the majority of our annual support comes during the critical year-end period and we couldn't continue fighting charlatans and promoting critical thinking about pseudoscience and the paranormal without it. Please donate now to help us meet our funding goals going into 2013.

And now, for a limited time, you can actually double the impact of your giving thanks to a generous JREF supporter who has pledged to match your donation dollar-for-dollar—if you act today. That means your gift will go twice as far—providing more free resources to educators to teach scientific skepticism, supporting more grassroots campaigns to fight charlatanry, and taking on more public figures and companies who promote dangerous nonsense.

We do all this because of the work Randi has been doing for decades to make the world a better place — a world where paranormal fakers are on notice, and the beguiled have a place to turn to get the truth. Randi’s tireless work inspires us to keep pushing back against the nonsense, and makes me unapologetic about asking for your help. The fight is worth it.

Please take a moment right now to double your impact and to help keep the JREF on firm footing.

On behalf of Randi and the rest of our team, thank you in advance for your support.

Written by Dr. Karen Stollznow   

In recent weeks we’ve been following the tragedy and mystery of the Malaysia Airlines flight 370 that vanished on March 8 with 239 people on board. Less than an hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing all communication was cut off. The plane diverted unexpectedly across the Indian Ocean and disappeared from civilian air traffic control screens. There has been much controversy surrounding the transcript of the last incoming transmission between the air traffic controller and the cockpit of the ill-fated flight.
