Who to support on Patreon?

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
Ursula Vernon
Elizabeth Bear
Crash Course
Carla Speed McNeil
Tom Siddell (Gunnerkreigg Court)
Goblin Fruit

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!

  1. I actually have one — https://www.patreon.com/cayoung — and support two others:

    Isa Sherry, who does a lot of fan work and prop building: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=328597&

    Christianne Benedict, who does art and writes about film: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=63222&

    Both totally worth it!
