Big Fundraiser for Special Series of Prayer Cards
Ok, folks, I’m reaching out for help for this project. I wrote the novena book “Honoring the Mothers’ (which will be available soon), because I kept feeling pushed by Hermes and Dionysos to do something for Their Mothers. Then I realized that while many of these women had cultus in the ancient world, we don’t seem to give them much attention today so I decided to expand that and divined on whom to include and the result was the aforesaid book.
I would like to commission prayer cards for each of these divine Mothers: Semele, Maia, Leto, Thetis, Metis, Alcmene, Leda, Danae, Pasiphae, Penelopeia. Grace Palmer has already done a lovely card for Maia, and I’m hoping that she will be able to do the others as well.
This means I need to raise – y’all sitting down ? — $3600, if I did the math right and minus what I’ve paid for Maia’s card and Leto’s. (the cards are $400/each just to commission the art alone and then $50/printing each set).
I think having devotional images is important. So many sacred images were destroyed when our traditions were sundered. I think it’s very, very important to bring new images of our Gods into being. That’s a huge part of why I started this project. I think it’s a necessary step toward rebuilding specific cultus and there’s something very special about having a devotional image of a Deity that one loves.
So I’m asking for help raising the funds to make these images happen. Those who donate will receive recognition as sponsors on the back of the card and the following:
For donations of:
$25 ten prayer cards of your choice.
$50 novena book of your choice (of those published) and three prayer cards
$75 three prayer cards, a gift certificate for one divination session.
$100 signed copies of my book “On Divination” and Sannion’s book “Hunting Wisdom” – a divination power pack. 🙂 plus three prayer cards.
$100+ a copy of the ‘Honoring the Mothers” novena book, a complete set of the Mothers cards (when they are available), and one other novena book of your choice.
Please contact me at Krasskova at gmail.com if you wish to donate or paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org but then email me at the gmail account anyway, so I know who you are and can arrange mailing of your loot. Please let’s make this happen.
Edit: one of my readers reminded me that we have a Leto card also by Grace Palmer. I had forgotten. So that means there are only eight cards to find. I’ve adjusted the cost accordingly.

There is already a prayer card for Leto, but I’d love to see another one done by a different artist.
OH! I’d forgotten we have Leto’s card.
Will you be selling the Mothers cards as set once they are done (like how you’ve done for the Olympians, the Muses, etc.)?
Yes i will. I’d like to be able to offer the set with the novena book
Mark us down for a $50 donation.
Reblogged this on Temple of Athena the Savior and commented:
Galina is running a fundraiser for a new set of prayer cards. I think it’s incredibly important to continue creating art for our Gods and bringing new icons of Them into the world. Galina’s prayer cards are an awesome expression of Polytheist piety. Please consider donating if you can.
