[PUBLIC] Fundraising Announcements / Fundraising Update for May 2021
« Last post by Hezetra on May 11, 2021, 07:55:02 pm »
Em hotep everyone!

As of the 10th May 2021, total donations are $1,243.27. Our goal is: $2,500.00

The following is a general breakdown of how we distribute funds that we receive through donations:

The first $500.00 goes for general House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses (see the financial page at http://kemet.org/finances for details).

The next $2,000.00 goes towards Hemet's salary. This satisfies the obligation to the Ministerial Services Contract, which supports her to work four 8 hour days per week and compensates her for her services. These include answering emails/forum posts, ritual work, pastoral counselling, divinations/RPD's, teaching, research, translations, and many other things.

Anything over and above the total of the first $2,500.00 will go into the Rollover Fund, which helps us to cover shortfalls on months when donations are below $2,500.00. The current Rollover Fund balance is $1,523.58 and we want to keep building this as much as possible.  Please click here for details about the Rollover Fund.

To continue supporting the House of Netjer, please try to donate via the PayPal Giving Fund here or through Zelle here. Regular PayPal donations will remove up to 10% of your donation through fees, but the PayPal Giving Fund and Zelle do not charge fees.  Additionally, making donations through Amazon's shopping app just got easier.  You can specify "House of Netjer" via Amazon Smile, in the app now. You can also do this from your desktop.

We have one current fundraising drive:
  • The renewal of Hemet's stipend, which will remain ongoing. For more information about this campaign, please click here.  You can specify in your monthly donations or with a one time donation, that you wish your donation to be used for Hemet's stipend by emailing Rev. Ihhysenu (revihhy@kemet.org). This means we do not place it in a general fund, but it is only used for paying Hemet's salary.

Lastly, we have the Shomu Mailing List which is a mailing list where you will receive daily calendar emails with materials from the Daybook as well as periodic hymns, prayers, and other tidbits provided by Hemet (AUS).  If you donate $5 or more you will be added to this mailing list, please see here for further details.  If you would like to make any suggestions to the content you wish to see on this list, please see here.

Thank you all for your continued and ongoing support! Dua Netjer!

Senebty,

Hezetra and the Fundraising Team!

This "replica" may be an adaptation of a statue. The scorpion posed like that I've only seen in Aset-Serqet images, reminds me of an image of Sety I praising Her.

I picked up this statuette at Pantheacon in 2017. I was immediately attracted to it, and the vendor mentioned it was a replica of a netjeri from the tomb of Ramses II. I've not had success finding anything similar, and he's been chilling on my akhu shrine for now.

Does anyone recognize this form? Its got the body of hippo similar to Taweret, paired with many rows of teeth like Sobek, and a cross-hatched solar disk with scorpion. Could also be a tourist sculpt that got a bit creative ;D. Speculation welcome.

Just bumping again in case anyone had information about number associations with specific dieties.

Thank you! I'll see if I can possibly find a copy of that book at the library and cast a glance over the paper you shared.

Em hotep, Tahotep!

I found the paper Reflections of Number symbolism on Egyptian sacred architecture by Zeinab Feisal useful. You can read it here for free, but I don't know whether it addresses your questions.

And I'm told that Richard H. Wilkinson's book Symbol & Magic in Egyptian Art is useful, specifically the chapter "Meaning in Many: The Symbolism of Numbers", but I don't have this book so cannot confirm.
