Well done everyone

The appeal to the occult community to save the eye sight of the occult writer Aaron Leitch has been successful and met its target within just a few hours.
It is a good thing to see the wider occult community rally around in support of one of its number. As  Josephine Littlejohn said this morning:

"The occult community are a good bunch, particularly when there is an emergency like this. It does matter how much we all fight and grumble, as long as we are there for each other when needed." 

Well done everyone.

Save Aaron Leitch's eye sight

Occult writer Aaron Leitch is losing his sight and will soon be blind unless the Magical Community steps in to help him.

On September 18, 2013, Aaron Leitch was diagnosed with cataracts.  According to the doctors, he is legally blind in his right eye and will lose sight in his left eye within months. 

Aaron is one of the good guys in the occult world who puts his teaching and his magic out there for those in need so it is time that the community gave him something back.  His eyesight is a pretty good gift. 

If Aaron has surgery in time, his vision can be permanently restored.  The not so good news:  The procedures he needs cost over $5000 and, due to the high deductible on his medical insurance, that price is beyond his reach. 

If he was a UK occultist he would have this operation for free, he would be able to raise his family and have a career without difficulty. Unfortunately he lives in a nation where helping people is considered Communinism and the Christians in charge have forgot what it means to care for people.

It is time for the occult community to show that it is BETTER than that and help one of our number carry on his magical work. It will not take much.  If those who Aaron has helped donate a dollar or two it will go a LONG WAY to protecting one of our own.

Our fund raising target is $5,500.00, which includes the cost of surgery (right eye $1527, left eye $3515), plus $450 to help with secondary expenses including PayPal fees for processing donations, medications, etc.  Your gift will not be tax deductible.  Give a little, give a lot, do whatever you comfortably can.  Any funds received over the target amount will be donated to The Himalayan Cataract Project.

Pay up Jimmy Page

A new internet campaign.... lets see if we can really change something. In the 1970s  the occultist Mike Magee loaned £200 to a Crowley collector called Jimmy Page who had no cash because he was on heroin and under the control of accountants.  In those days £200 was  fortune.  Page never paid him back and no one ever heard of it.  Now using the power of the Net lets make Jimmy Page, who is 70 this week finally pay his debts.
