Fast-forward to today’s blog entry where I plug an new venture in the Hellenic community: Pandora’s Kharis, which is a movement within the Hellenic Polytheistic community to generate communal gifts to social charities. The gifts are being given to each month’s chosen charity at the Noumenia. There is a blog and a FaceBook group to discuss which charity to donate to and how to donate to the giving circle.
Looking at this, I can only think “Why didn’t I think of that?” and that shames me. Because YEARS AGO I was saying that something like this was demanded of us — and did not take it another step. It is easy for us to forget how good we truly have things, until we are faced with difficulties. It is a lot harder when we are faced with difficulties to see that there are people who have even more difficulties than us. But this is something that I think we NEED to do — because we need to learn to work as a group to affect the world around us.
I don’t know what the first month’s charity will be yet, but I am praying that I can find a way to donate to it — despite some financial issues that I will not go into here. I am thankful that my family has what we need, and that makes Pandora’s Kharis all the more important…..
