Meet FBB blog editor Kelly Wright


kwrightOne of the most important tasks of the Foundation is connecting our members to the extraordinary work of the organizations we support. And one of our primary tools for making that connection is this, our homepage blog, which is managed and edited by Kelly Wright.

Kelly tells the story of her discovery of FBB:

“In mid 2009, I was thinking about the fact that it is very important to me to be involved with causes I believe in, but I wasn’t actually volunteering anywhere. I’d been searching around to find an outlet for my impulse to volunteer, but I couldn’t find a cause that felt like a perfect fit. I’d been following [Dale McGowan’s blog] the Meming of Life for some time, and Dale had been going on and on about some big announcement he was going to make. I mostly ignored it, figuring it wouldn’t be anything all that interesting to me. Then when he announced the formation of Foundation Beyond Belief, I thought, ‘That’s it! That’s what I’ve been looking for! I must be involved with that!'”

Kelly eventually signed on as our blog editor, and her husband Airan as our web designer and administrator.

“I so strongly support FBB’s mission, and I want to be a part of that mission,” she says. “Also, I want my daughters to see their parents actively involved in trying to make the world a better place, and I want them to be active, too. Maybe in a few years, we’ll recruit them as junior charity researchers.”

We are so grateful to have Kelly aboard!
