Give It Up For Osvaldo Soto

Hey people, it's payback time!

If you live in the Carolina Piedmont general area or attend events here like Central NC
Pagan Pride Day, you've likely met and directly benefited from the efforts of Kay and Osvaldo Soto. If you don't and haven't, think of them as something similar to the Missouri, the Rio Grande, or the St. Lawrence rivers - they may not run through your own back yard, but we'd all be poorer without them.

The short version is, the Sotos run Truely Unique, a metaphysical shop in Wilson NC. The long version is, they've spent the last several years being a huge local resource - the store is a learning center, a safe oasis, a gallery for local artists and craftspeople, an information kiosk, a magical and spiritual
think tank, and an interfaith bridge builder. Military veteran Osvaldo went from serving his country to serving his community,and now his community needs to step up for him.

Osvaldo has had a series of surgeries for multiple health issues, and has more hospital time to go yet. That means medical  bills, extra expenses, and time lost from the store. You can help get them though this rough spot by shopping in the Wilson store or online, participating in the YouCaring fundraiser (which does not require any sign-up-so-we-can-spam-you crap to use), and/or giving them signal boost on your blog or social media page.

Osvaldo (and his camera!) were missed at CNC PPD this year; let's show the Sotos just how much by supporting them like they've done for so many of us.
