Much thanks for this pledge! Unlike the Cinnamon challenge, I can promise that your donation will not go to waste by people with too much free time on their hands.

Merci, my friend. I will make sure these cloves go to a better place than an ash-tray behind a school gym from a phys ed teacher smoking and trying to make fedoras come back.

About Imani Barbarin

What do you know about the 20%? My name is Imani Barbarin and I am interested in creating narratives and media that centers disabled people from around the globe, a population that comprises nearly 20% of the globe- every race, religion, sexuality and gender. Many of you visiting this page are already familiar with who I am and my site:, or on twitter. I thank you for your past and continued support in my writing and amplifying my voice as a disabled writer. As I look forward, though, I want to do more. Understanding the incredible need for representation of the disabled community from within, I intend to create more media to reflect who we are as individuals and as a group. I hope you can continue to help me in that vision. Please consider being a patron of my work. Love, Imani.

Holy Crap! At $1500+ I could make in-roads for Crutches And Spice Media- Developing accessible films, podcasts, guest blogs and brand universe. I want disabled people to see themselves in what I create, the great vastness of who we are.
