Small changes matter.  And a bunch of us together can do what no one of us can do on our own. Thanks for being a part of this.

Thank you for this significant support.  It means a great deal, and allows me to do the work that seems like it is mine to do, whether it is financially profitable or not.

Thanks so much for investing deeply in what I'm up to, and being a significant part of it. My non-profit in Guatemala, which I have been working for as a volunteer since 2004, is called PEG Partners, partly because a tuning peg leads to a big change with a small effort. That's what we're trying to do here.

About David LaMotte

Welcome!  I appreciate your being interested in what I do (and if you're just learning what that is — more on that below). I hope you can take a moment to watch the welcome video, which explains some what I'm up to, and how Patreon works. If you would like to support that work, I can only be deeply grateful.  Thank you.  This page was launched in November of 2019, and it is not an overstatement to say that the community that has evolved within it has changed my life. 

If you would like to be a part of that community, I invite you to join us for monthly video chats, and chime in here any time you like with comments or questions. If you really just want to chip in to support my work, but don't want to come by for video chats, etc., that's fine, too.  No pressure!  

Everyone who is a part of this group gets the same stuff, no matter how much or how little you choose to contribute, down to one dollar a month (roughly the price of downloading one song on iTunes). You can cancel, increase or decrease your pledge any time.

If you're a part of this crowd, I will be sending you at least one song a month, generally something new that I'm working on, and until we run out of chapters, you'll be getting a chapter a month of the audio book for my book Worldchanging 101: Challenging the Myth of Powerlessness, until the book is done, and by then, I'll have something else cool to offer in that slot.  Four times a year, I'll do a video concert that is Patreon-only, and we'll also have monthly group video chats, and extra stuff that just shows up from time to time. 

If you want to know more about what I do, here are a few links:

DavidLaMotte.com — the main hub for my music, books, and other projects, as well as booking requests.
PEGpartners.org — the non-profit I founded in 2004, which supports Guatemalan educators with projects on literacy, critical thought, and artistic expression.
AbrahamJam.com — A Jew, a Muslim, and a Christian walk into a music hall... my interfaith band, with Billy Jonas and Dawud Wharnsby.
LetsBeNeighbors.org — The place to download or order 'Let's Be Neighbors' banners, now hanging across the U.S. on houses and faith community buildings. 
My TEDx talk — On the intersection between peace work and music.

Thanks for being interested, and welcome to the circle!  

Peace, 

David

When I reach 300 folks, I'll start a public conversational podcast, where I talk with folks who work to make the world a better place. Patreon makes this kind of work possible! Thank you!
