Over and over again we honestly emphasise: The Lazarus Union asks neither for application fees nor for membership fees. The Lazarus Union neither receives any public aid or grant nor has it ever asked for such.
So the Lazarus Union finances its various projects only based on voluntary donations and so depends on the money of the various distinctions which can be acquired by purchase and the fees for distinctions applied for.
Distinctions which cannot be applied for are in general awarded without fees but the persons awarded are free to place a donation to the Lazarus Union AFTER having been awarded.
We consider this open, honest, and transparent towards all persons receiving a distinction from the Lazarus Union because also a “donation“ for a distinction which can be acquired by purchase is in our eyes worthy of an award!
The founders of the CSLI endowed the CSLI Medal of Humanity on the occasion of the founding of the CSLI in three classes. This award has been renewed 2015 in two classes with a new design.
The 40mm broad, red and blue split ribbon holds four golden stripes of 2mm breadth each as a symbol of the principles of the CSLI: tolerance, humbleness, mercy and grace of charity. The red part of the ribbon symbolizes the “battle” to live and act according to the principles of the CSLI, the blue part stands for the sky, awaiting you as a reward for your humanitarian deeds.
This medal shall be awarded to persons who have acquired particular merits in humanitarian work and duty. In case of the Special Class of the CSLI Medal of Humanity the merits should not only be outstanding but also be acquired over a longer period of time, possibly in a leading position.
