Life Members promote freethought poetry, boost scholarships

Dean and Dorea Schramm, Lifetime FFRF Members, have taken their personal activism to a new level. For several years, they generously have provided a $50 bonus for every FFRF student scholarship winner, a cool $1,000 for high school scholarship recipients this year alone, not to mention pending gifts to recipients in the two other scholarship categories. 

Dean also offers each winner a free copy of his book, “Rhymes for Reason.” Phil Appleman, FFRF’s poet laureate, says of the book:  “. . . clever rhymes, witty takes and double-takes, seriously broad knowledge of the Bible and other nonsense books, and endless quotable lines . . . Thanks for slipping this bit of joy into my life!”

The book is now available on Amazon in print and digital format or at deanschramm.com/.

The Schramms’ new project, which benefits Student Secular Alliance groups on campuses around the country, is a Freethought Poetry Contest. Rules are at deanschramm.com/.

SSA groups which encourage their members to submit secular poetry or vote on contest entries have the opportunity to earn cash for pizza. It’s a way to help SSA attract members, promote freethinking with poetry and get support for meeting expenses. 

FFRF appreciates the Schramms’ support for up-and-coming secular activists!
