We know some of you out there donate to various powerful causes. After all, who doesn’t want to help children fight cancer or help organizations provide education or healthcare to the needy. If you donate your time and money to causes such as these, you should be proud.
However, we know you’re tired, and perhaps poor or struggling. This is a difficult economy. So you might ask why we ask for your help and what donating to us actually does. Consider the following points.
We are the only organization in the U.S. or Europe who supplies the general public with parapsychology research or education. Actual research findings you can rely on. Given all the shows, myths, and controversy surrounding the paranormal, this is the only place someone can go to get reliable information.
There are a lot of people out there who have had paranormal experiences, and many report being frightened of them. It’s hard to make sense out of a paranormal experience and people often report anxiety, crisis, and fear from these events. Paranormal Facts are here to help people with these issues, but it’s not enough.
To address these experiences, ISRAE will be opening the paranormal experience registry this spring. Our hope is that readers and the public will share their paranormal experiences using our scientifically designed registry. We can then help people who are in fear by providing them with summaries (while protecting the confidentiality of our registrants) of other people’s experiences. Often times there is a lot of comfort in knowing that your experience is not an isolated one.
Parapsychology research does not receive one dime of grant money. There are no grants for us to apply for, and there are only four privately funded parapsychology institutes left in the United States. We are the underdog, and we are the only non-profit parapsychology research institute with a focus towards you the public. Every dollar you send literally keeps us solvent.
So in closing, please consider giving. five dollars makes a difference to us. A monthly contribution of five dollars helps us fund internships for students, purchase research equipment, and keeps Paranormal Facts, our upcoming free Parapsychology Class, and the Paranormal Experience Registry open. Were here for you, but we can’t do it without you.
Best wishes from all of us at ISRAE,
Dr. Brian Laythe
