Goals
$519 of $2,200 per month
Reaching this goal would allow me to completely remove adverts from my videos whilst still earning enough to sponsor Udita to move to the UK. This offers four massive benefits to you the viewers.

1st- No ads (well duh) which means you can watch our videos undisturbed.

2nd- I would be able to go after religious crimes such as the Catholic scandal and the Dawah apologetics surrounding child rape. I'd also be able to cover the treatment of atheists, women, LGBT+ individuals etc. on a more global scale. At current the need to monetise content forces me to make a portion of my content 'monetiser friendly' which limits how much I can talk on these important topics.

3rd- It'd improve both my and Udita's health. As noted, this amount is set on the basis of how much I'd need to earn to sponsor Udita to move to the UK. After 6 months of steady income this would allow us to apply and hopefully move to the UK. We spent over a year apart before and we can't go through that again. We also can't stay in India long term.

4th- Whilst we need the income, we don't actually have that lavish of a lifestyle. I don't drink or smoke, my idea of fun is D&D which besides the books I already have is free. So most of the money would be saved for travel, allowing us to attend secular conventions worldwide! Have you ever wanted to meet us in person? Well this may be your chance.
