Yesterday, Courtney York posted this on the HP Facebook page:
Hello! I’m very new to Paganism. I’m a naturalistic pagan and for all of my life, I thought that I was just not going to ever discover a religion to be a part of. After I described my beliefs to my sister, she linked me the website HumanisticPaganism and I was blown away. I have never EVER found a belief system that even remotely was like mine but naturalistic paganism is a perfect fit. I cried after reading the blog and ever since then I recognize as a Naturalistic Pagan — since I already was one!
I remember feeling the same way when I first discovered this site. This is why this site is so important. We are providing a spiritual home, albeit a virtual one, for Humanistic and Naturalistic Pagans who might otherwise be unable to find a home in Paganism or other forms of Religious Naturalism. This is why I think it is important that HP expand its outreach. There are many more people who might join our community, but have never heard of us or even conceived that we might exist.
We have five days left in our Indiegogo campaign. We are about half way to our goal. If we can raise $538, we will be able to place an add at The Wild Hunt (and help support The Wild Hunt at the same time). A contribution of $10 or more will earn you a shout out at HP. A contribution of $25 or more will get you a link to the website or blog of your choice.
Thank you for your support.
