Paying It Forward
Homelessness, food insecurity, addiction, and domestic violence are the issues closest to my heart, because I, myself, have been there.
That's why as soon as I reach 100 Patreon Members I'll be donating 20% of the funds every month to an organization that addresses these issues. Below, I've listed a few recipients I'd like to get started with.
If you'd like to support my mission, my work, and your fellow humans, and gain some other membership benefits, you can become a Patreon Member for as little as $3.
