Pagan Fundraiser for Japan Disaster Relief Through Doctors Without Borders

At the time of this post, almost $16,000 of the $30,00 goal has been raised in just four days.

“Pagans from all over the country have donated and stepped forward to endorse the project. We received donations from individuals as well as organizations. To all those who stepped forward THANK YOU. We still have been unable to generate significant numbers of small donations. It continues to be the goal of this project to engage the entire Pagan community in a unified effort. If you are concerned that you do not have the funds to donate consider just a few dollars. Each of us can only do so much in these tough economic times. What is important is participation not the donation amount.” Peter Dybing, National First Officer Covenant of the Goddess
