There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Health And Wellness Business Association
| Against allopathy|
The Health And Wellness Business Association (HAWBA) was created in 2017, their mission statement is ...
“”…to promote initiatives that support better collaboration, interaction and ethical business practices within the health and wellness business community.
The qualifications of the founders of HAWBA include "Holistic Health Coach", "Holistic Nutritionist", "Certified Yoga Teacher", and "degree in Quantitative Economics". Other HAWBA board members include a lawyer-marketer, a public-relations person, a promoter of Rupert Sheldrake, and an excrement expert, (whose book is recommended by Deepak Chopra).
The HAWBA seal-of-approval on a website is intended confer an air of respectability: the illusion that they have been validated by some independent agency. The HAWBA seal also unintentionally serves as a red-flag: any website displaying it is part of a group engaged in quackery. Current HAWBA members as of 2019 include …
