GOP hopeful’s charity to benefit charity in NC

The Republican candidate for governor in North Carolina is raising money for a charity that’s focused on fighting cancer, but he’s not donating the proceeds.

State Rep. Scott Wilson, who is running against incumbent Gov.

Roy Cooper, announced on Wednesday that the Green Cross for Cancer Fund will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the campaign’s signature campaign logo to the Good Atheists charity, according to a news release.

Wilson, a Democrat, has been a prominent supporter of the Good Cause Foundation, which raises money for non-profits that promote the causes of nonbelievers and people of faith.

He’s also a co-founder of the North Carolina chapter of the American Atheists, a secular organization that advocates for nonreligious Americans.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Good Charity Foundation said that it has raised more than $250,000 since launching in February.

Wilson is one of the candidates seeking to unseat Cooper in the November 2018 election.
