Title: How Much Time Does an RPD Take?
Post by: Tjesi on April 21, 2019, 07:10:32 pm
Here is another in the "How long does it take" series:

Those of us who have experienced an RPD know of the time we put into the application and the time the RPD itself takes. What else is involved for Hemet?

So… for each RPD, Hemet is spending 3-6 hours on the rituals, let alone the time necessary for shopping for offerings and arranging the appointment. So… in the 24 hours that we pay Hemet for, if each RPD takes an average of 4.5 hours, one RPD takes up around 22% of the hours we currently pay Hemet for.

People pay a fee of $53 for supplies for the RPD. This fee does not cover Hemet’s time. Also, it almost never covers the costs the offerings. For example, if the applicant is from Brazil, 53 Brazilian reals is $7 in U.S. dollars and many Remetj around the world cannot afford the fee. If RPD fees do not cover the necessary costs of offerings, Hemet makes up the difference personally with her own money. In the rare case where there are funds left over, Hemet saves them to use for those who cannot pay or for the naming offerings.

She has done this for every RPD. It is a lot of work... and a lot of time.

Can we give her the funds she needs to do the work?

Thank you for your consideration.
