Reaching for Our Goal : Fundraising Update

Em hotep!

I hope everyone is enjoying their budding summer. With trips to be taken and Retreat only a few months away we are still aiming for our goal of $5000 by Retreat! We are getting together the numbers so far so please be patient with us. We did receive word that Amazon Smile donations are at $50 from January through March. Give Amazon Smile a chance when you are shopping for yourself, Retreat, or all those summer birthdays!

We are still working on the Praises of Netjer donation items for everyone and are looking forward to sharing them with you.

We have gotten many wonderful donations through our Donation Services. If you find something you like they are all reasonably priced. There are artistic pieces, custom ordered jewelry, music transcription service, and much more!

As you go through the summer remember to keep in mind all the ways that make it easy to give back to the community. Whether you are selling on ebay on HoN behalf, or just give a little along with Amazon purchases, it all makes a difference in helping take care of HoN and Tawy.
Entry on the many ways can be found here.

Cast your Vote : Praises of Netjer Contest!

Praises of Netjer Contest!

So we will be holding a contest as part of our Fundraising towards our goal of $5000!!! This contest is pretty simple. Votes will be cast towards a Name, any of them, and the winning Name will have two wonderful pieces created in their honor and donated to the House for the community to enjoy! The items to be created are a song, donated by our lovely Sarytsenuwi, and a painting by A’Aqytsekhmet. These files will be free to download by everyone in the community and will focus on the winning Name!

Here is how it works!

To vote for a Name you simply donate to the House with a noted indicating you want to vote in the contest and who you are voting for. Something like this….

First: Go to Our Donation Page
Then you can do a one time donation. Click the One-time donation button

Second: You will be taken to PayPal Donation screen
The screen will have a + symbol where you can write a Note.

Third: Fill in your Contest Entry!
In the note section put in the contest name and the god you would like to vote for!

Finally: Hit the Donate Button!
All donations are welcome. There is no minimum for voting. Every little bit helps!

The results will be updated here as we get them. On top of everyone being able to have the files the painting will also be donated to Tawy for that Name’s shrine. I hope everyone has fun and enjoys the products of this contest!!

This contest will last until April 30th!


Contest: Currently there are no names entered!

Financial Needs and New Goal!!

Em hotep!

As FUNdraising Bak it is my goal to keep everyone up to date and in the know on our current needs. We have been checking in with Tawy needs and know of two things that need some attention.
First those nice boiler repairs are still in need of some payment.
We are currently looking at a bill of $5000 for that. We are hoping to raise this particular sum by Retreat!
That is only a few months away and I know we can do it!! I will keep this goal updated and keep the topic fresh in our minds.

I have posted on ways you can help our community and ways to benefit from all we have to offer. You can find that link here.

We are also in the process of creating an ebay tutorial for anyone who may want to sell on ebay for the House but don’t know how. So keep your eyes out for that. For now let’s keep doing our best. Check out Helping Tawy and browse our wonderful services!

Fundraising Update and Information

Em hotep!
As we are still getting updated on the needs of the House and Tawy I wanted to remind people of the many ways to contribute to the House. As well as give you an update on Tawy and some new features in our fundraising efforts!

Having funds set aside for the House and especially for Tawy is important. Winter in the midwest has been up and down which contributes to wear on everyone’s property. Our local Tawy contact is hoping to get some solid maintenance and upkeep numbers once the snow season ends. Specifically we will be looking over how this winter has effected Tawy. Please remember Tawy is a resource for everyone and is there for all of us to use. More and more events are being held at Tawy for the community so we are always in need of funds to keep it in its best condition to continue to be of use for everyone.

If you would like to help with fundraising but do not feel comfortable donating money or don’t have the ability to at this time no worries!  There are many things you can do to help out.

Whether you have time to volunteer in the fundraising staff or to volunteer a skill or service for donation gifts. We are always in need of people who are willing to give us a hand. Having a variety of donation gifts motivates donators and gives us the ability to give something back to those who donate. If you are interested in contributing a skill, service, or item as a donation gift please email me. Or check out the Donation Gifts page.

Ebay Auctioning
Even if you are unable to contribute time or services we have a new way people can help. Through ebay a person can auction an item and donate a certain amount of the profit to the House. The percentage of donation can be pin pointed by the seller. Everything from 10% to 100%. If you do have some extra items you have been wanting out of your house you can use this cause to motivate yourself for some spring cleaning! The information can be found here. When you do list an item on ebay feel free to post about it to let people know what is available.

Having local gatherings can be wonderful and spirit feeding. Getting to know your siblings in the House is a great experience. Hosting a meet-up or just attending is the perfect way to bring us all closer as a community! If you are planning to host a meet-up and want to help the House in fundraising, please let us know. There may be a simple or fun way that your meet-up can help Tawy and the House.

Private auction
In the past the House has done its private auction. Nothing has been announced or planned as of yet. But I know people look forward to it and wanted to let you know it hasn’t been forgotten. As we decide our needs  we will update you.

Secret Cow
Secret Cow is a way to get emergency financial help to the people who need it. Found on the forum in the official private forums. Secret Cow can be used to help out anyone in the community who needs it. Anyone in the community can go to Secret Cow for assistance. To donate for the Secret Cow you simply donate to the regular donations for the House with a note that states it is for the Secret Cow and if there is a specific listing you want it towards include that as well. Donations to Secret Cow are anonymous. There may also be items needed for Secret Cow instead of money, depending on the listing. Information on how to donate items will be included in that particular listing. If you are in need and a bind please turn to Secret Cow. All information in regards to secret Cow can be found in its forum.

With so many ways to help we hope everyone is inspired to contribute, spread the word, and get to know the many people in the community who keep this wonderful place going. There are many ways to be a caretaker of this community and these are but a few. Spread the word, get people interested, and we will do the same!

A’Aqytsekhmet and the Fundraising Team

Make it by Moo-mas: SUCCESS!

It’s admittedly been a little over a week since The Establishment of the Celestial Cow on December 25th, but sometimes good news is worth the wait.

Thanks to your tremendous generosity, we passed the $3000 goal mark on the evening of the 24th, and have been able to put the money towards the much needed pipe repairs!

There’s always more work to be done admittedly, and we’ll have information for you soon regarding our next fundraising project, but for now give yourself a well deserved “Nekhtet!” and read on for a few exciting updates from the HelpingTawy team:


1.) Starting within the next two weeks, you can look forward to receiving monthly updates from Awibemhethert via that will share the details of how your donations have been put to the best possible use for Tawy House!

2.) In celebration of “Red Week,” the House of Netjer’s week long festival in honor of the god Set which will kick off 2015, we will be selling a stunning journal full to the brim with art and writings by our temple members. Stay tuned for this exciting release!

Blessings to you and yours at the start of the new year, and thank you again for all of your continued help for our temple!

Make it by Moo-mas: Music Album Offer Extended!

At the request of a few kind donors who were interested in Moo-mas songs, but were still waiting on paychecks, I will be extending my offer of a Kemetic-themed album of holiday carols! Please contact me at with proof of donation by Wednesday, December 17th if you are interested.  I will send you an album (including a minimum of 6 a capella tracks) of a few of her Kemetic adaptations of traditional holiday carols, to be digitally delivered on the 21st. Minimum $10.00 donation required!

Curious what a Moo-mas carol sounds like?

Here’s sample of one of the tracks: Hark as All Kemetics Sing!

Make it by Moo-mas: Update #2

‘Tis the season of winter celebrations, and we’re certainly celebrating here at HelpingTawy! Thanks to you, we’re within $500 of our final goal of $3000! But the question remains: can we “Make it By Moomas?”

Here are four great ways you can help us in the final stretch to raise the remaining money for our Tawy House plumbing repairs by December 25th:

1.) Sign up to donate to the House of Netjer every time you do some of your holiday shopping via AmazonSmile!

2.) Check out our artistic donation gifts as possible gift options for your friends and family. We have some great new spiritual jewelry pieces made by Sarduriur, and several other artists like Rayashi and A’aqytsekhmet who you could commission to make a unique piece of wearable art or a painting!

3.) Curious about what lies ahead  for you in the new year? Consider the divination donation gifts under spiritual services!

4.) Earn a holiday music album available only for those who read this update by contacting Saryt at with proof of donation by December 10th.  Sarytsenuwi will send you an album (including a minimum of 6 a capella tracks) of a few of her Kemetic adaptations of traditional holiday carols, to be digitally delivered on the 21st. Minimum $10.00 donation required!

A merry Moo-mas to everyone, and may you and yours have a joyous winter holiday season!

Raise for Repairs: Make it by Moo-mas!

Em hotep, to my siblings in the faith, and nekhtet!

In the month of October, through your kindness and generosity, we raised over $1500 for Tawy House!

This has made a tremendous difference for the House: we were able to start to pay off some of the repairs for the damaged pipes, and we replaced the Tawy refrigerator (may the old, deceased fridge rest in pieces).

We accomplished this during one of the most notoriously difficult fundraising months for any non-profit, and that speaks volumes about you. 

But while you should definitely be giving yourself a well-deserved pat on the back right about now, the journey isn’t over yet! We would like to make the other half of our original $3000 goal by December 25th, a holiday in the faith known as The Establishment of the Celestial Cow (often nicknamed “Moo-mas” given its overlap with Christmas), to make absolutely sure that Tawy House is set to go for the remainder of the winter months.

I again encourage you to sign up to support “The House of Netjer” through, particularly as we head into the season of gifts and giving.

I also suggest that you take a look at our many donor gifts: perhaps one strikes your fancy that might suit as a gift for someone else as we enter the holiday season!

Give as you can, share as you can, and I know that we can make this goal by December 25th!
