A Message from the Temple

Thanks so much everyone for an amazing Black Friday/Cyber Monday show of support! Welcome to the new members, and for those of you who ordered from HEX APPEAL check your email for tracking information.

I know there’s been a lot going on, but if you’re still in the giving thanks spirit- here’s a great “Giving Tuesday” opportunity.

From the GOFUNDME campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/genesis-breyer-porridge

Industrial music legend, cut-and-paste artist, and pandrogyne Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has leukemia and needs our help.

Having canceled their upcoming tour with PTV3, they are flat broke, three months behind on rent, and undergoing chemo and constant testing. Gen is on oxygen, and unable to do much beyond getting to the hospital. Friends are visiting and contributing what we can, but the expenses keep growing.

We want Gen to be warm and fed through the winter, and focused on hopefuly healing, not finances. The drugs are experimental, but promising. With continued therapy *and* low stress, Gen does not have to die from this, but could be back performing again sometime next year.

Please help this now-broke but extraordinary and generous human being continue on with us as long as possible. Your contributions will all go to rent, food, and medicine.
