Fundraising Stuff We are Working On!

Well, we’ve done alot that needs noting! Very Important to Note, Father Gerasimos agreed to be advisor to the HeartSoul Ekonomia Institute, (HSEKI), we partnered with an awesome social services agency, the Family Place, a program of the Family Nurturing Center, and Tim Janis agreed to perform for us a benefit concert!!!!

Toni Childs also expressed strong interest in a summer concert and we’ve talked to Jason Safford of Gelston Castle Estate about other acts for a one day concert in the Summer, 2012, here in Central New York.  We are very excited about this development. This will help us hire staff for three years to work on the three magazines, PraxisQuarterly Literary Review, Ekonomos Weekly, and the Journal of Ekonomia.

We have  just participated in the St. Moses the Black Ancient Christianity Conference, and it was very fruitful on many levels to have been an attendee of the conference. Slava Bogu!!! And HSEKI also got to attend the Dormition Feast Day of the Most Holy Mother of God at the Assumption Church in Ferndale, Michigan!!!!

Also we’ve been granted a blessing to re-create a poster that is located at the St. Xenia Skete in Wildwood, California to fundraise on behalf of the HeartSoul Ekonomia Institute, and in gratitude for this blessing, we will designate 25% of proceeds from the sale of the Poster, the Postcard, and the wallet size card to the St. Xenia Skete.  Proceeds will go toward i  establishing a St. Xenia Travelers and Household Needs Funds and providing for salary for Executive Director of HeartSoul Ekonomia Institute.
