Pagan Aid is aiming to raise £1000 through crowdfunding to help with the next phase of Patrick McCullom’s India Environmental Project. This is the first time that Pagan Aid has used crowdfunding to raise funds for a project.
McCullom’s project so far has worked to try to save the environment and the animals of India threatened by India’s entry onto the global economic stage. Working with Jane Goodall, the first stage was teaching children of the importance of protecting animals and the environment. The second part was the Save the Ganges Cremation Project with the designing and promoting new furnaces for Hindu cremations with greatly reduced or zero wood. Instead of depositing the ashes into the Ganges as per custom, a pot containing a seedling tree is provided whose dirt is combined with the ashes and a small amount of Ganges River water to be planted.
The current phase is to bring indiginous leaders to the next Kumbh Mela where 130 million people will be gathered. These leaders will be teaching the importance of ‘original instructions’, how the Earth is sacred and how our actions affect all life. Their teachings will be both environmental and spiritual and will be given to the biggest gathering of people that has ever happened.
