I pretty much love Patreon.
[Side note: Is it Pay-tree-on or Puh-tray-on? Vote in comments!]
I love it because I can take my discretionary charitable budget and micro-slice it among a bajillion deserving projects. I don’t need to give twenty of eighty dollars to make a difference! I can give a dollar a month here, a dollar a month there! And it really does add up! And people really do benefit!
Gosh, I love this.
At this time I give Patreon money to:
Rachel and Miles XPlain the X-Men
Carla Speed McNeil
Tom Siddell (Gunnerkreigg Court)
That’s, like, two mildly fancy coffee drinks a month worth of helping artists. I would cringe in embrassment that I’m doing so little, except that this is DELIBERATELY how it WORKS!
So, friends and neighbors, what other Patreons do you support? Do you have a Patreon? Give a shout-out in the comments to deserving causes and people!
