Elemental Book & Curiosity Shop

 Winnipeg, MB
My name is Kierin, and I've been friends with Dominique for several years, as well as a regular customer at Elemental Book & Curiosity Shop. I see how Dominique pours her soul into her shop and services, how much she truly cares about her patrons, and how difficult it is when the store is attacked. Everyone should be free to practice their own beliefs without hate directed at them. Elemental fulfills a spiritual need within our community, and our goal is to see the damage to the shop repaired, and see it protected from further harm. The funds raised towards this goal will go directly towards the purchase and installation of new windows for the store, a security system, and video surveillance signage. As a small business owner, Dominique simply does not have the extra funds available for such repairs, and has considered closing instead. We want to keep our neighborhood magick shop in business, and any donation is appreciated. Our spiritual community may not be finanically wealthy, but we have a wealth in kindness!

Hello friends and supporters!

We've now reached over 2/3 of our goal, after only three days of this campaign!!

The response is overwhelming, and each and every kind comment and donation is an affirmation that good people are still a majority in our community. Thank you all so much.

I am part of an online Wiccan community. I shared the story on our page "The Celtic Witch Clan". The response and support is overwhelming. Many ask if there is an online shop that they could patronize and support. The go fund me has also been shared. Best wishes. BB

Donated! I'd hate to see Elements disappear from the city, and it would be wonderful to know the crimes have stopped!

May all the Gods, spirits, and ancestors smile on you and your work!

A super easy option for security cameras is to use cell phones. Even if you sourced two working ones from pawn shops near by. Get Wifi for your business. Install Motion sensitivity or trail cam app on phone. Set it to email each picture to an account. All you need then is a power source. Set timers on phones. During business hours you can have jango or Spotify play loreena mckennit.or Blackmores Night. Funds are tight but experience I can share. Best of luck. Don't forget barley under your door mat

You guys should consider a thick plexiglass or shatter proof/bullet proof glass for your next window. Throw a brick or rock at it and it'll bounce right back at them, hitting them in their hypocritical faces with any luck! LOL With the new cameras, you'll finally be able to shame them all publicly, too!!! Brightest Blessings!!!

Blessed be, How much would it be to replace those windows with steel glass, I work in security it is glass like they have in front of bank tellers and other high crime areas, it is super thick and would require a sledge hammer to break and even then it would be one pane not the entire window. Just something to think about, Blessed be and hope the donation helps.
