In Honor of our Veterans...

Touchstone will be joining with Dogwood Local Council & Everglades Moon Local Council in supporting Operation Circle Care, which sends care packages with Pagan books, magazines, CDs, and other spiritual resources to Wiccans and other Pagans on active duty in war zones.

We will be collecting donations of new and gently used items at our Yule ritual in Calimesa on Saturday, December 8th.  I know you're already bringing something for the potluck, and possibly something for the raffle, but please consider bringing any of the following for our brothers and sisters who are currently deployed in combat:

  • Pentacles
  • Ankhs
  • Awen symbols
  • Thor's Hammers
  • Sun symbols
  • Moon symbols
  • Goddess and/or God symbols
  • Green Man/Woman symbols
  • Wheel of the Year symbols
  • Pagan Music, Meditation (CDs & DVDs)
  • ATT phone cards
  • Crystals
  • Small God and Goddess statues
  • Pagan Books (No nudity)
  • Incense
  • Oils
  • Herbs
  • Small Wands
  • Small travel chalices
  • Altar cloths
  • Gift cards from store that ship overseas (for example Barnes and Noble or Amazon). Gift cards can be used for online holiday shopping so deployed soldiers can send gifts home to their children from overseas.
We look forward to seeing you at the ritual!
