Em hotep, everyone!

We are a little over halfway through our current fundraising period for December. The financial status as of November 7th, 2019 is:

$1086.72

Thank you all so much for continuing to support the House of Netjer! We are close to our Fundraising goal or $1,500 which will satisfy the Ministerial Services Contract to support Hemet to work for four 8-hour days per week.

If you plan on donating this month, please remember to donate through the PayPal Giving Fund or through Zelle! Regular PayPal donations removes up to 10% of your donation through fees, whereas the Giving Fund and Zelle do not have any fees.

Lastly, here is a reminder of the general breakdown of the funds that we raise:
  • $500: General House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses (please see the financial page for details on temple fees, and don't hesitate to ask any questions!)
  • $1,000: This goes toward Hemet's salary in addition to $1,000 from the Ministerial Services Contract, which supports her to do the various tasks needed for the temple to function (such as emails/forums, ritual work, pastoral counseling, divinations/RPDS, teaching, research, translations, etc)
  • Anything left over: Goes into the Rollover Fund

Em hotep, everyone!

The fundraising period for November ended yesterday. The total funds raised during this period are:

$1,464.81

Thank you all who financially supported the House of Netjer! We are a little shy of our $1,500 fundraising goal, but fortunately we have funds in the Rollover Fund to bring us up to our goal. With this money, $500 will go toward general House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses. $1,000 will go toward supporting Hemet to work for four 8-hour days per week in November (in addition to $1,000 Ministerial Services Contract). Since some money was removed from the Rollover Fund, the total has now decreased to:

$444.83

Em hotep, everyone!

We have just a couple days left until the end of the November fundraising period (October 20th). The financial status as of October 15th* is:

$1176.31

We are $323.69 away from reaching our goal of $1,500! With your help, I know we can make it.

*Our wonderful Financial Bak provided me with the status by the end of the day on 10/15, however I had a personal emergency and was not able to relay that information to you all until now. My apologies!

Em hotep, everyone!

The fundraising period for November is a little more than half way done! As of October 7th, 2019, we have:

$1074.25

Thank all of you who have donated! Your contribution helps support the House of Netjer and Hemet(AUS!) We have 12 more days left in the fundraising period. We need to raise a minimum of $1,500 to satisfy the Ministerial Services Contract, which will support Hemet to work for four 8-hour days per week.

With the new contract in place, we will be collecting a total of $2,500 each month. This money will be distributed in the following ways:
  • $500: General House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses (please see the financial page for details on temple fees, and don't hesitate to ask any questions!)
  • $2,000: Hemet's salary, which supports her to do the various tasks needed for the temple to function (such as emails/forums, ritual work, pastoral counseling, divinations/RPDS, teaching, research, translations, etc)
  • Anything left over: Goes into the Rollover Fund

PayPal Donations
If you donate through regular PayPal, please consider donating instead through PayPal Giving Fund or Zelle. Regular PayPal removes up to 10% of your donation through fees. The percentage removed in fees varies depending on the amount donated, with smaller donations having a higher percentage in fees! Here are a few of examples of the fee breakdown for domestic donations (international donations have a higher fee):
  • $5 donation: Fees are 8.2% (the House receives $4.59)
  • $10 donation: Fees are 6.7% (the House receives $9.33)
  • $30 donation: Fees are 3.2% (the House receives $29.04)

I apologize for the delay in announcing the final total that was raised during the October fundraising period, which ended on September 20th. This delay was due to waiting on finalization of the new Ministerial Services Contract. This new contract is effective immediately, therefore it is included in the final total we have collected, which is:

$2,885.26

Thank you all who financially supported the House of Netjer! $1,000 of this total is from the Ministerial Services Contract. The rest was raised through your donations and participation in the online auction event. Nekhtet!

The first $500 that was collected will go toward general House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses. $2,000 will go toward supporting Hemet to work for four 8-hour days per week in October. The remaining money will be held in the Rollover Fund, which now has a total of:

$480.02

Em hotep, everyone!

Today is September 15th, which means that we have 5 days left of the current fundraising period for October. As of today, we have:

$1,177.07

You may notice that this amount is lower than what I stated in my last announcement. This is due to an error in calculations from the previous status that did not take into account PayPal fees. As a result, I figured this would be a great time to remind everyone to donate through PayPal Giving Fund or Zelle to avoid these fees and ensure that 100% of your donation actually makes it to the House of Netjer!

Lastly, don't forget to check out our online auction! All money raised through the auction will be donated to the House of Netjer. There are 4 days left to bid on these great items: https://www.helpingtawy.com/all-auctions/

Em hotep, everyone!

We are just a little more than half-way through our fundraising period for October! For those of you who have already donated, thank you so much for supporting Hemet(AUS!) and the House of Netjer. As of today, September 6th, 2019, we have:

$1281.44

The fundraising period for October is from August 21st to September 20th, so we have 14 more days left. Just a reminder, the first $500 that we raise goes toward general House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses. The amount we raise after that, in increments of $500, will pay for Hemet's salary ($500 = one 8-hour day per week, $1000 = two 8-hour days, etc). Last month we managed to raise $2,500. With 14 days left, can we reach that amount again this month?

Online Auction:
The online auction will be held from September 10th at 3:00PM Central (Tawy time) to September 19th at 3:00PM. Proxy bidding will be aavailable for this auction. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

Em hotep, everyone!

I have exciting news! Yesterday was the last day for the September fundraising period. During this period, we raised:

$2,594.76!!!

Thank you all so much for your support of Hemet(AUS!) and the House of Netjer! This is the most money we have raised in a long time. What a wonderful way to start off the new Kemetic year. Nekhtet!

The first $500 will go toward general House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses. This leaves us with $2,000 to pay Hemet to support her for four 8-hour work days per week in the month of September.

The remaining $94.76 that was raised will be going into the Rollover Fund, which is a new fund that is being implemented as of today. This fund will work toward supporting Hemet's salary in future months with the remaining money that we receive in donations. Please read this thread to learn more about how this process will work. Please let me know if you have any questions about this new Fund.

Thank you and Senebty!

[PUBLIC] Fundraising Announcements / Introducing the Rollover Fund
« on: August 21, 2019, 10:14:20 pm »
Em hotep, everyone!

I would like to announce that as of today, we will be implementing a Rollover Fund with the additional money that we raise through donations that does not go toward general expenses and Hemet's salary. As a reminder, the first $500 that we raise goes toward general House of Netjer and minor Tawy expenses. The money we make after that, in increments of $500, goes toward Hemet's salary ($500 = one 8-hour work day per week; $1,000 = two 8-hour days per week, etc). Up until today, the remaining money that was left over after these allotments had been saved in the temple's account. Now we will start focusing on giving Hemet(AUS!) the maximum amount of donations that we receive.

The Rollover Fund will be used to rollover the extra money that is raised from a fundraising period toward Hemet's salary in a later period. Instead of doing a simple rollover of all of the remaining money month-by-month, we will be managing the money to help control the amount that is dispersed. We will do this by having a maximum rollover amount of $250 to be dispersed at a given time. This means that the difference between the amount of money that is raised and the amount of the next salary tier must be less than $250. Please see this diagram with examples to help understand how this will work. If you have further questions on this process, please don't hesitate to ask.

The purpose of managing the money with a rollover cap is our attempt to create stability with how Hemet receives the money. A major concern of mine is that Hemet will receive lots of rollover money one month but very little funds the next, therefore she could go from working three 8-hour work days per week down to one 8-hour day per week. Fluctuations like that are drastic and unstable. If my idea for a rollover cap does not seem to work after giving it a shot for a few months, then I will be happy to re-evaluate how to handle this Rollover Fund. But rest assured that even though this money is being managed, the goal is to get it all back to Hemet. This Rollover Fund cannot negatively impact Hemet's salary, it can only benefit it.

Senebty,
Endy and the Fundraising Team

Edited to add: Today is the beginning of the Rollover Fund. During the fundraising period that just ended yesterday, we raised a total of $2,594.76. This means that the Rollover Fund currently has:
$94.76

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: homemade natron faintly "fishy"
« on: August 20, 2019, 09:39:25 am »
Em hotep!

Great question! I normally use sea salt. The brand I use has varied over the years but I never have had a fishy taste.

I've done some looking around to try to find the origins of the Diamond Crystal Kosher(ing) salt I'm using, but not having much luck. The manufacturer (Cargill) describes the two methods used to extract salt, from the earth and from the sea but doesn't say which specifically the salt I'm using comes from. Ill probably need to email them with the question.

Measured by volume, I gather there's a significant difference in the sodium density even between different brands of the same kind of salt, based on the crystal structure of each.
The crystal structure of NaCl doesn't change (which means there are not significant differences in the relative density), but the processes used from different brands can impact the bulk density. So you are correct that the sodium content varies across brands, I just wanted to clarify the wording :) Anyway, by volume there is less NaCl with Diamond Kosher Salt than with most other tables salts. What this will mean is that if you are using a 1:1 ratio of salt and baking soda to make your natron, you are ending up with less NaCl and more sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3). Perhaps the fishy taste is coming from that? I can't say that I know what baking soda tastes like on its own, but I do know it can make things taste funky when too much is used.

Senebty!
Endy
