It has been one full year since I and my brothers gave up our high positions and Orbisly ambitions to join the abbey. One year ago, we set out in the hopes of being a blessing to Orbis. Through the change of protectorates, several wars/raids, and 800 thousand merger requests, we thrived individually. However our mission remained. Through the last year, we followed the economic policy of freewill giving; in addition to modeling ourselves according to Acts 2:42-47, nearly every member for the last year has tithed towards a goal that we are finally making public: The Hope Cache.
The Hope Cache is a Monastery-run, volunteer-accessible charity intended to help those who are beaten, bullied, raided, and otherwise destroyed. Volunteer-accessible means that anyone who wishes to contribute from outside our alliance may do so. Contributing to the hope cache allows you to full and public accounting of amounts and all outgoing transfers (Yes, this means doing public econ), and allows you to have a say in who the funds are distributed to. Any who wish to contribute may do so. This is a charity, so you will not get a return on investment... but maybe the government will give you a tax break? Either way, we do not give to gain earthly treasures.
What does this mean for you?
The Hope Cache has grown to the point where we feel comfortable delivering funds more regularly. However we are reserved monks naïve to much that goes on. When you see someone in need, let us know. And whether you're interested in this idea or want to scoff, feel free to join our discord and discuss it with us.

tl;dr: The Monastery celebrates 1 year and founds the Hope Cache charity.
