Donate To Witches Of The Craft

The WOTC is a non-for-profit organization. The work we do is purely funded by donations from the public and the Pagan community. You might think that we are purely an on-line organization and that’s it. This is the furthest from the truth.

The WOTC is as active off-line as it is on-line. It is our mission to spread the truth and beauty about our Religion. To those who still associate us with the myths and stereotypes of the past. This is a job in itself. That is only the start of our work.

Currently we are located in Western Kentucky. We operate out of a small house that has been converted into our office building that we own. We were able to purchase this building from contributions from our donors. The building itself is in current need of repair. The winds in this area are straight-line winds and the roof on the building is in desperate need of repair. Also the central air conditioning unit (which is 12 years old) is now down. It is also in need of repair. Our building has two windows in it. You can imagine opening these windows trying to get a breeze on 110 degree day. We have individuals that have donated fans to us. But the air conditioning needs to be fixed. We have had individuals pass out from the heat and even have heat stroke. Plus those expenses, we have not mentioned the cost to maintain this website on the internet. We have no choice but to move to another server which allowed us to have more storage and runs faster than the old. With this improvements and new conveniences, another expense is added to our monthly bills. But none of these repairs and staying online wouldn’t be possible without your help and donations from the Pagan community.

Another service we provide is a wildlife recovery center. The center is located at a privately owned home but it is still funded by the WOTC.  The center is located at this location because care and security can be provided for the animals 24 hours a day. The animals also have enclosures that are big enough for them to wander around safely and get much needed exercise. These animals come from local vets that know we will provide the animals with the utmost care while with us. When the animal is fully recovered it is since back into the wild. If you visit on any given day, you might find a raccoon to a fox recovery from their injuries. The supplies, food, bedding, maintaining the fencing and housing cost money. Help is desperately needed in this area.

As much as we do, we still have time to dream. Our future plans include purchasing a twenty areas of farmland. This area offers much needed privacy and also room to expand if needed. Our goal is to turn this area into a Pagan center. Our office would be located there, along with the wildlife preserve. We would host special events, celebrate the Sabbats and also offer a yearly convention over a 4 day period of time. It would be a Pagan center located right in the middle of the Bible Belt. Pagans that live in this area would no longer fear meeting together or finding others of liked mind. We would be there for them. Our center would not only be open to those in the Bible Belt but would also be open to every Pagan that wishes to come and visit. When we are not having a special event or celebrating a Sabbat, our center would maintain regular operating hours. If by chance you are traveling through the area, you could stop in and meet the WOTC. We would love to meet each of you in person. But a Pagan center is much needed and we will eventually buy and build it.

You see we are committed to the future of Witchcraft and Paganism. We have many areas that we contribute to and are involved in. But we cannot do any of this without the help of the Pagan community. It takes all of us for our present obligations to be met and also our future dreams to become a reality. If you would like to become a donor of the WOTC, we would great appreciate it. You now know your donation will be put to good use.

Since this page went up, there has not been an emergency, crisis or just a basic need we have had, that you have not met for us. Since everyone has been so nice, loving and generous toward us. We would like to take an opportunity to say, “Thank You Very, Very Much.”

We have decided to have a raffle each month as our way of saying, “Thank You.” Every month we will offer a Pagan related item to give to one of our wonderful family members. All you have to do is make a donation of any size and you will be automatically entered into that month’s raffle. All of you have been so wonderful to us, we only wish we could do more. Thank you again!

If you feel uncomfortable making donations online, you can mail a money order or cashier’s check through regular mail.

    Wow, a lot of people wouldn’t even know where Kevil Kentucky is. I used to go through there on the way to my ex-husband’s grandmother’s and his other family members homes. I presently live in Cape Girardeau MO (I’ve lived here for so long and the evil of this area is getting me really ready to move on) and plan to be gone from there by the grace of the Heaven’s by early summer this year. What kind of wiring do you have in the building? I ask this because there may be alternatives to how you can heat and cool your building until you have the funding accumulated for the new unit. Also is this unit located on the roof of your building? And have you ever considered a new building? Geodesic building are awesome in this area where we have straight winds, tornadoes, and earthquakes. Just an idea for a new goal. Let me know if you will about your present wiring capacity and the other questions I have because there may be ways to help without going for a new outside unit right away. Thanks, I will help if I can. Vickie

    • It is always nice to hear from someone from this area. I know several witches that are spread out in Kentucky. I am actually amazed that you didn’t blink and miss Kevil. It is so tiny not even a decent restaurant to eat at. We have to drive to La Center (if you know where Kevil is, I am sure you know where that is). The Bluegrass down there, I love. They have delicious fish. Stop in there the next time you are through here. As far as the people around me, they leave me alone. I don’t bother them and I don’t expect them to bother me. I had one idoit that was gun happy. I had a wolf that kept coming on my property. The gun happy neighbor saw him and told me he was going to shoot him the next time he saw him. I told that jerk if he shoots him on my property, I would shoot him. So basically they leave me alone. Unless they have a wild animal in their garage and then they call and want me to come and get it. I know they have saw me blessing the house and digging holes in the middle of the night. My husband got tickled and told me they would call the sheriff thinking I was burying a body. But I am glad they leave me alone because I am not really crazy about any of them. I have thought about selling everything we have and buying a motor home and just traveling.

      I appreciate your concern over the a/c and heating unit. I have had three different electricians out here and they all agree, the wires in the heater part have melted together. It is a miracle that the place didn’t burn to the ground. I was out back one morning watching the critters at the pond. Got up, came in and you could not even seen through the place for the smoke. I started throwing breakers right and left. I guess if I didn’t come in when I did the place probably would have burned to the ground. Changing the subject a little, have you been having earthquakes over there in Cape? We have had several here recently. I have always missed them. The last one I didn’t and I don’t want to feel another one. It sounded like someone had run into the building. The noise associated with that quake totally amazed me. I know we had one when I was little but I don’t remember any noise with it (perhaps I was too young?).

      Anyway, sweetie, I am going to run or else I will talk your ear off. It is good to meet you and hear from you. I hope we have the opportunity to get to know each other much better.
      Goddess bless you & yours,

    Okay, I am very worried about your house and the wiring. I rent a dilapidated trailer here in Cape and the wiring is terrible and getting worse. My furnace quit this winter…I ran space heaters when I had to and the wiring slowly started freaking out. Now I have to find a place of my own and away from Cape if at all possible. But lets talk about your situation. The wiring is where the ac unit failed most probably and this means that this is where you should start with repair. because installing a new unit with weak wiring is only going to have it burn out as well and the next time you may not be so lucky and be that close to home so you may not be able to get there in time to save it from burning down. You really have to get this checked out and I am not an electrician (I am scared to death of electrical but we can’t live without it anymore can we?).
    The last quake I remember that I actually felt was in the late 90’s and it was believe it or not centered in Salt Lick Ill if I remember the name of the town. It was pretty shaky here for a few minutes then it ended. We didn’t have any after shock from that one. Some quakes do make a loud noise. I have read about the Ne Madrid quake in the 1800’s. It actually had after shocks for over a year that were quite strong. The land in that area is sandy and the soil looked like water in waves because it is sandy. The population in that area was not as high then and a lot of people lived in the rural areas and this had to be really frightening for them. I mean even with the education we have today about quakes and other natural occurrences we are still pretty dumb aren’t we? The New Madrid fault is being studied vigorously by some people and they have been finding that this fault line may be a fault line that is centered in Indiana and not where they had originally thought. I was born in Indiana and lived in Southern Illinois for a few years when I was a child. My heart still is in Southern Illinois but I know I probably will never get back there to live.
    There is a site where you can track earthquakes and it is weird in reading where they are and then reading about a mining near disaster or disaster happening really close. I think we should have left the Earth the way it was given to us and not go digging things up and destroying everything. But quakes are a natural thing on the other hand as well so? Anyway, I do think we should take much better care of the earth and ourselves maybe others will come to that realization sooner than it seems they will at present.
    There is a place north of Cape and in the Ozark area around Farmington MO. It is a state park now but it is an imploded volcano from prehistoric times. It is Taum Sauk Mountain. I wonder what might happen there if the earth decides to go prehistoric on us hehe. Silly things I think about.
    Anyway I will stay in touch and let you know about some alternatives to replace the unit completely. But I would definitely get a good electrician (maybe Angie’s List) in to look at the wiring. Because they make portable air conditioners that are not window units and can be moved from one room to the next. They cool a nice square footage but the wiring can go even with these units if it is already weak. I found that our with my heaters. Do let me know how things are going with this because I am concerned about things for you. I am simply going to find a way come hell and high water to get out of this town and away from the emotional vampires around here. I’ve had enough with this problem.
