By profession, Isabel was a world renowned monumental sacred artist whose stained glass windows, huge murals and mosaics grace countless monasteries, churches, convents and schools.Probably her most significant contribution to the Shroud were her articles that showed from a professional artist's point of view why the Shroud is not a painting.You can use it whether buying or selling on e Bay and a percentage that you designate is donated to STERA, Inc. and by purchasing items directly from our Website Store page.
Frankly, with the large number of visitors we have each year, we could generate substantial revenue by allowing advertising on the site, but we have never allowed ads in our 21 year history and will never allow them as long as I am here!Fundraising is my least favorite part of this job and is very difficult for me, since I was self-employed for more than forty years and always earned what I needed.In fact, I supported the website for its first fourteen years at my own personal expense.Since the founding of STERA, Inc., I have dedicated myself full time to this work, and trust me, producing and operating a non-profit organization by yourself is definitely a full time job!It's an easy way to support our work and this website without spending anything extra.
We want to thank those of you who have already logged in and started supporting us this way. We just joined with e Bay For Charity to provide an additional way to support and STERA, Inc.
But now, that time has come again and this year we offer several new ways to support STERA, Inc.
In September we announced our participation in a new non-profit program from Amazon called "Amazon Smile," which allows you to shop as you normally do and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price directly to STERA, Inc. You can even adjust your settings to automatically enter Amazon Smile every time you log on to the Amazon website.
Yet, as president of a formal non-profit organization, I am also obligated to solicit contributions from our viewers and subscribers, just like every other non-profit in the world.
Of course, unlike most other non-profits, we only have one fundraising effort each year and prefer not to bombard you with continuous requests for contributions (which I am sure you appreciate).
This page will be updated whenever new page additions, articles and other resources are added to the site.
