About John D Ruddy

My name is John D Ruddy and I need your support! I have been making the animated YouTube series Manny Man Does History for years and I have covered many many topics so far including Wolrd Wars 1&2, The Cold War, The American Civil War, the American, French, and Russian Revolutions! They're a great quick and easy overview to either introduce you to a topic or quickly revise it.
I have set up a second channel, John D Ruddy Does Stuff, to explore more content not necessarily connected directly to history, including pop culture, video games, and social issues.
As you have seen, YouTube isn’t always the most reliable of places for steady income and it can be very difficult to continue producing all of this content. The Manny Man history videos are very labour intensive as each video contains hundreds of illustrations which I hand draw. I want to continue to making this content. I love it, and I love sharing it all with you. 
Our Pledge Tiers include many rewards and benefits:
By pledging $1 per month, you will be supporting me in my creative endeavours, and you can ask guaranteed questions for the monthly livestreams, as well as have your name read out at the end of my videos.
$5 per month will receive a Manny Man magnet, a custom digital Manny Man Profile Pic of your choice, as well as above.
$10 per month will receive a custom hand-drawn Manny Man illustration of you or a person of your choice posted out to you, as well as above.
$20 per month will receive a custom hand-drawn Manny Man illustration as well as a signed copy of one of my Manny Man Does History books, as well as above.
All supporters will be able to vote on upcoming videos, get a mention at the end of my videos, receive exclusive sneak peeks at what I am working on, access to exclusive audio commentaries of my history videos (once I reach 50 patrons) and an exclusive video about the making of my Manny Man videos (once I reach the goal of 150 patrons)!
It’s all very exciting and you can be part of an ever growing community! Let’s make it happen!!!
