On the day of the Hene kai Nea, I post a monthly update about things that happened on the blog and in projects and organizations related to it. I will also announce Elaion's coming PAT rituals.

Changes to the blog:

Anything else?
This month Pandora's Kharis will raise funds for two causes, two people: Dominick Lawniczak Evans and Ashley Guillory. Dominick's full story can be found here, but in short, Dominick has two huge problems that are creating impenetrable barriers to his independence. First, his hoyer lift (the lift that gets him from the bed to his wheelchair) is old and unsafe. The second problem is his wheelchair. Ashley Guillory had a brain tumor removed ten years ago and with a recent trip to Houston, Ashley and her family found out she will need another brain surgery to remove a cyst in the middle of her brain.

The deadline to donate is March 8, 2016. You can do so by using the PayPal option to the side of the Pandora's Kharis website or by donating directly to baring.the.aegis@gmail.com. Thank you in advance! Join us on Facebook if you would like to pitch a cause for next month!
