NEW AWARDS

 

In 2020 the International Lazarus Union and its Knighthood of Honour will celebrate the 10th birthday – among others with a great Investiture Ceremony and other events. This anniversary is a good opportunity to celebrate and to visualize the changing of the General Plenipotentiary by the new awards.

 

As a “general topic” for all new awards the extensive presence of the Lazarus Union (LU) on all five continents will be symbolized. Therefore the basis of the awards is a globe on which different symbols can be fixed according to need and kind of award.

The presence of the LU on all five continents is symbolized by streaks in different colours. Through circles at the ends they can be seen with some imagination as humans who rejoicingly raise their hands.

In addition just the inner symbols in the middle of the decoration should be principally different. Thereby UNIQUE shall be created that can be identified in the future as decorations of the Lazarus Union for any given purpose.

For many of the “old” decorations there exist no longer stamping tools and therefore these decorations cannot be formed any longer and so many of these decorations were replaced by the new created insignia. The classification of the current possibilities for awarding in three categories remains valid.

The focus is on the candidate himself and he shall be Honoured officially by an award.

This Honour for the candidate will be fixed by an appropriate decree without any obligation to buy a portable award or to wear it (as well no obligation for the person who applies for an award for a third person).

Again we have to concentrate on the basic idea of an award that prefers the NON-MATERIAL instead of the ECONOMIC value.

In ancient Greece, it was also just a simple laurel branch, which was presented to an Olympic champion as a sign of his merit and honor.

An award of the Lazarus Union is given according to the merit in the appropriate degree and with the issuance and the receipt of the decree, the candidate (or the submitter) is entitled to acquire the respective insignia against payment of an insignia fee. The purchase of the insignia is absolutely voluntary and has nothing to do with the real award. We would like to hand out the decorations for free. Unfortunately this is impossible because we don’t want to use donations for this and there are also no receipts by membership fees. Nevertheless we want to keep the costs as low as possible. Unfortunately the costs for the production of the decorations are not as low as we would like to have them due to the magnitude of the insignias. For the new decorations the following insignia fees are valid (however these fees can be waived by a resolution of the Board or the General Plenipotentiary):

 

Medal of Honour: EUR 30,-; Ribbon EUR 5,-: Miniature EUR 8,-.
Medal of Honour 1st Class: EUR 45,-; Ribbon with Rosette EUR 12,-; Miniature EUR 10,-.
Great Medal of Honour in Silver: EUR 75,-; Ribbon with Rosette EUR 15,-; Miniature EUR 20,-.
Great Medal of Honour in Gold: EUR 95,-; Ribbon with Rosette EUR 20,-; Miniature EUR 25,-.
Special stage: These insignis are generally awarded free of charge!
Cost for delivery: Austria EUR 6,-; Europe EUR 16,-; outside Europe EUR 25,-.

 

On the one hand it is granted with this procedure that merited persons get an appropriate honour of their merits (without having in mind the “economic” costs) and on the other hand that for these awards the Lazarus Union does not have to use donations.

 

IMPORTANT!
However, in general and for all given awards, the rule is that they must not be sold or given to third parties during the lifetime of the recipient.

Our “awarding policy” provides THREE kinds of distinctions awarded by the Lazarus Union:

 

CATEGORY 1

Distinctions as a “Thank you” and as a “donation receipt” (these are, if one wants to say so, distinctions which can be “acquired by purchase”. Their purpose is to help financing our projects.).

 

Old decorations” (they will be maintained due to traditional reasons).

Foundation Cross
Donation Cross of the Lazarus Union with Silver Star and Gold Star
(this particular special insignia can only be awarded!)
Members’ Medal in Bronze
(silver and golden medals can only be awarded on application for a fee depending on membership)
Medal of Friendship in Bronze (silver and golden medals will be awarded free of charge)
UN-NGO Remembrance Cross (in favour of the UNHCR)
Blessing Medal

 

“New decorations” – here we only have the

 Jubilee Medal – 10 years of Lazarus Union

Notice:

The next investiture will be again an extraordinary event. We want to celebrate our 10th anniversary and we don’t want to use donations for this and therefore we created the Jubilee Medal for limited production of 300 pieces.

 

Therefore an “Jubilee Medal” on the basis of the new insignia shall be created. The medal costs EUR 30,- (triangle ribbon with ribbon bar). In addition the miniature is offered for the price of EUR 10,-. For each Jubilee Medal a personal decree will be issued. The Medal can be purchased in our web shop.

 Fundamental note concerning the awards:

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!
