Since January 1998 this website has been informing our European-descended cousins across North America, Europe, and Australia, about their forgotten birthrighttheir ancient Ancestral Religion and Culture. During that time we've never asked for help in this endeavor.
Nevertheless, many have approached us and inquired how they might participate, how they might support our efforts and this website. And since this website is not hosted on a free server (never has been), does not contain advertising, banner ads, pop-ups, etc., we've had to pay for every penny out of our own pockets since day one. We're not complaining, by the way, just stating the facts.
We certainly don't want anyone to jeopardize their own or their family's finances, but if you're in a position to help, and feel a strong desire to do so, please refer to the information below. Thank you.

A few words about Charity:
Most Westerners today believe that Christianity originated the concept of "charity"the idea of giving to those in need. Actually it was the Germanic/Teutonic pre-Christian people (our ancient Ancestors) who realized the wisdom of supporting "friends" and relatives in need of assistance. It was common amongst the ancient German tribes, and laid the foundation for what today is often termed "Christian Charity", adopted and twisted by the church for their early agenda of conversion.
The original meaning of the various Germanic words for "friend", actually meant "Cousin"a close or distant relative, but related by blood or marriage. When Christianity adopted the idea of charity from our ancient ancestors, they twisted it to focus on strangersnon-relatives. In fact proclaiming love of thine enemy to be the highest form of charity. This absurd idea of turning away from family in favor of complete strangers, set the stage for the downfall of western civilization and the onset of the politically correct Universalism which we now endure.
Amazing how a little misinformation can affect a people so completely. See our booklet entitled "Yule" for more on Christianity's notorious habit of taking on pre-Christian concepts and activities, and then claiming originality.
