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: crutchesandspice.com, 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.

Thank you for sprinkling a little bit of pepper my way. I can use it on just about anything!

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.
Clove Spice
$10 or more per month 3 patrons
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. 
Garlic Spice
$25 or more per month 1 patron
Grazi, you have given the strength to brazenly go forth and speak truth to power regardless of the amount of garlic I've consumed that day.
Mustard Spice
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
Just like the faith the size of a mustard seed, I knew you'd come along! Thanks! Pledge at this tier and receive an annual thank you from me to be published on my website. 
Ginger Spice
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
Used in some daring dishes. This pledge level allows me the freedom to take some risks in creating content. Donate at this level and get a Thank You post card from me!
Pumpkin Spice
$200 or more per month 0 patrons
 Whoa. Donors like you aren't easily found in nature. Speaking of Pumpkin Spice, in pledging at this level, you can schedule a digital coffee (tea, if you please) date with me.
Goals
$136 of $200 per month
Reaching $200 would mean I would begin to generate income in order to dedicate more time to creating and evaluating content for the future.
