A Message About Membership from Our Area Steward, Tim Illig:

Every year, ManKind Project asks everyone to become a Member of ManKind Project. I have been a member of MKP since I was initiated 7 years ago because I deeply embrace the Mission of MKP USA: “MKP USA creates a world where men act on their individual and shared responsibility for the future of humanity by initiating and supporting men on a path of emotional maturity, spiritual awareness and deepening community.” I passionately support this wonderful organization with my time, talent and treasure (money) because I want initiated and uninitiated men to experience the wonderful gifts that I have received. I want this world to be a safer place through the connection with men, and it is up to me to do my part.

There is so much more we could do if we had more money. This year, I am increasing my financial contribution to well beyond the current ask because I believe we will do awesome things in the Mid-Atlantic Area if those things are properly funded. One of the things that is important to me is offering scholarships for men who want to attend the New Warrior Training Adventure and the Multi-Cultural Leadership training.

I invite you to go within and ask yourself how much MKP means to you in terms of time, talent and treasure, then make a commitment and a stretch to support this wonderful organization with as much as you are able.

Blessings,

Tim Illig
