1. Vampyres pagans and goths against animal abuse 

The FaceBook Page: https://www.facebook.com/PGVAAA and There is also our Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/VPGAAEA 

We are a community of Vampyres, pagans, and goths against Animal Abuse. ANIMALS ARE NOT OURS TO EAT, WEAR, EXPERIMENT ON, USE FOR ENTERTAINMENT, OR ABUSE IN ANY OTHER WAY. We also invite those of the other Dark Cultures to aid us in stopping Animal Abuse of all types and the destruction of the animal kingdom and the natural world for capitalism and other selfish reasons. I believe unlike most people that animals have a soul or spirit as we all do so they deserve the same respect we get. It has been brought to my attention that most people are under the assumption that certain community's such as Goths, Other-kin and especially Vampyres do not care about anything and are only abusive individuals especially with all the bad press we get. They also believe all Vampyre kill animals for there blood since getting a donor can be quite hard and so I started this cause to show we are not these things the media shows us out to be and there is a special passion is my heart for animals as I love them dearly. My own Cat is my baby and is just like a member of the family and both my wife and I care for every animal we come in contact with...

Pagan-run food pantries continue to offer resources during pandemic  

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Maintaining a strong community during the long pandemic that has consumed most of 2020 now in the U.S. has been difficult, especially for members of the Pagan community.

Long the linchpin that has held the eclectic umbrella of Pagans, Witches, Heathens, Wiccans, and others together, many Pagan shops have suffered and are struggling to stay afloat in the Covid-19 economy. So often witchy and Pagan shops are labors of love, even in the best of economic times.

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Maintaining a strong community during the long pandemic that has consumed most of 2020 now in the U.S. has been difficult, especially for members of the Pagan community.

Long the linchpin that has held the eclectic umbrella of Pagans, Witches, Heathens, Wiccans, and others together, many Pagan shops have suffered and are struggling to stay afloat in the Covid-19 economy. So often witchy and Pagan shops are labors of love, even in the best of economic times.

Since the founding of the shop, an ever-growing community of Pagans has visited the shop. The Dragon and The Rose has also partnered with a number of small and local merchants and businesses to bring unique products to clients and has hosted numerous events.

Partnering with the non-Pagan and non-magickal community has been extremely important to Karen Estremo, and the shop had collected and donated for a few years to Second Harvest Food Bank.

From there, the project has evolved, Karen explained. “We started collecting for 2nd Harvest about 7 years ago, but about 5 years ago, they just didn’t pick up our donations, so after a while, we just distributed them directly to people who were having a rough time.”

These distributions continued informally for a few more years. Then last year, Arielle’s Table was formally established.

A space in the shop is designated for the pantry, and customers can conveniently ‘shop’ for food and toiletry items. Arielle’s Table is open to anyone who needs a helping hand. Anyone in the community can stop by, and the pantry is totally community-supported.

The Dragon and The Rose has long been a safe space for people who sometimes feel very isolated, misunderstood, and alone, and adding the pantry provides a discreet way to make sure that having a meal and access to basic hygiene is one less worry.

People do not need to be Pagan or witchy to get assistance from the pantry. Anyone who needs help can stop by The Dragon and The Rose during business hours or can message the store via Facebook or the website.

The staff is also happy to accept donations to the pantry. It is best if food items are shelf-stable, and Arielle’s Table also gratefully accepts toiletry and hygiene items, as well as pet items—many pantries do not have things available for dogs and cats, and it can be heartbreaking to let go of a treasured family pet while trying to make ends meet.

There is another food pantry founded by a Pagan group serving Lansing and surrounding areas in Michigan, called Pagans In Need.

Pagans In Need can be contacted through Facebook page or on their Patreon and is open for distribution usually on Saturdays. Little Pagan Pantry is another resource located in the Richmond, Virginia area.

Pagan-focused pantries can feel safer for people who are uncomfortable going to other similar pantries such as those sponsored by Christian churches.

The Dragon and The Rose is located in Santa Ana, California, and is open with COVID-19 safety measures in place Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 7 pm.

Stability went from being an afterthought to an elusive goal for many this year. Arielle’s Table’s goal is to ease the worry of wondering about where the next meal is coming from or making sure that people have simple, yet essential items like shampoo and toothpaste.

Arielle’s Table is just another way that Karen Estremo can give to a community that meant a lot to her daughter. Through Estremo’s work, what is remembered, lives! 

The Druid Network celebrates 10th anniversary as recognized charity


The Druid Network

DARWEN, Lancashire, England – Today marks the 10th anniversary of The Druid Network (TDN) achieving recognized status as a charity within the United Kingdom by the Charity Commission of England and Wales.

In a statement sent to TWH by Neil Pitchford, a trustee for TDN noted, “This anniversary is, in many ways, as significant as the original groundbreaking day in that the idea of divinity being expressed within and through nature is gaining traction.”

Pitchford also pointed out how attaining their charity status has helped to legitimize Druidry across the United Kingdom.

“Legally, as is stated in the piece, in the UK a religion was defined by the central requirement of an anthropomorphic figurehead and this definition was also a common understanding amongst various interfaith groups as well,” Pitchford stated.   

***I JP Vanir (DDG) am a member of the Druid Network as well as the Druid Order of North America... 

Last year, Pitchford was the first Druid to ever be appointed as one of nine moderators for the Faith Communities Forum (FCF) of the Inter Faith Network for the United Kingdom (IFN-UK).

Pitchford cited their recognition as a charity as paving the way for his appointment, “It is a good sign that this precedent resulted in those Interfaith organisations accepting that the idea of divinity experienced through nature is a valid religious viewpoint. This acceptance lead to TDN becoming fully involved at the UK level in Interfaith with the resultant appointment last year creating another precedent.”
