Em hotep, everyone!
As of January 2nd, Temple donations stand as follows:
Ameritrade Dividends: $246.85 ¹
PayPal: $285.44 ²
PayPal Giving: $189
Goal: $ 761.29 /$1,500
ACTUAL: $381.84/ $1,500
January has always been a hard month for us, but this year it is harder than before. Donations have been very sparse for several months, and the Temple is on the brink of not being able to pay its bills, even with our donation goal lowered.
Not paying the bills means we lose priceless pieces of our history in storage. It means we could lose the forum. It means we would not be able to pay Hemet (AUS) for her tireless dedication and work, without with none of us would be here with in the House.
I’m not mentioning these things to guilt-trip anyone, but you all deserve to know what kind of position the Temple is in right now. I don’t want to keep any secrets about Temple finances or “back-of-house” work (with the exception of NDA-covered information, of course).
Please, consider donating what you can to the House. Even a few dollars - a single coffee to-go - from everyone would put us so much closer to our goal - maybe even enough to add to the rollover fund for fhe first time in almost a year!
We need everyone’s help to keep this Temple running.
Donations to the Zelle account are the most immediately helpful, as that goes directly into the House bank account for bills, but donations through all avenues are important!! See the Donations page for all the links.
If you have any questions, please reach out to me here on the forum, or by email at [email protected]!
Senebty for now, and may 2023 be kinder to us all!

¹ Per conversation with the Exec. Board we moved dividends from our Ameritrade account to cover Hemet’s paycheck for January. This money is never guaranteed.
² PayPal funds of $132.60 moved to the Chase account to cover the upcoming storage bill and website renewal for January.
