Join us!
  • With your support, I can continue to make LGBTQ wellness content. Patrons are helping me cover the cost of producing, shooting (eg. lighting, cameras, mics, props, etc.), editing, and overall creating this content. I couldn’t do it without your support. Thank you!

About Alayna

Who are you?
My name is Alayna Fender. I'm a mindfulness and compassion teacher, creator of The Other Side of Overwhelm, a member of the LGBTQ community, founder of The Compassion Revolution, an online personality, an offline personality, a Canadian, and most importantly, a CONTENT CREATOR. I've been making videos in various bedrooms (not like that, stop it), cuddling various cats, for years now. It's been an incredible adventure. I love what I do, and I want to do more of it. Do it better and more and do it more and do it better. The more doing it the better, is what I'm trying to say (stop it).

What is Patreon? What is this site? Where am I?
Patreon is a crowd-funding platform for content creators. It's sort of like Indiegogo, only instead of supporting one big project one time, continuous small projects are funded through your monthly support. Becoming someone's "Patron" helps content creators like myself maintain a consistent stream of funding. My content is free and will remain free, don't worry! Patreon is simply a way to support the creators you really care about, if you choose to do so. Every bit helps!

But what do you make and when do you make it?
I make videos every Friday on my YouTube channel - Alayna Joy. I create videos on a wide range of topics, with mental health, sexuality, and compassionate living being my specialties. I teach mindfulness and compassion both here in Vancouver and online. I also run The Compassion Revolution, an online community dedicated to bringing more mindfulness and compassion into our lives and the lives of those around us. 

Anything else I should know?
Well, actually yes! A portion of all my Patreon proceeds are donated to charity! I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to support myself and my work through the money I make online, and want to pay it forward. So you can know that by becoming a Patron, you are not only contributing to me and my work, but your money is helping to support various charities as well!

If you are here, reading this, I take it you are already a part of this community. A part of this family. I want to thank you for that. Whether you become a Patron or not, know that I appreciate you and every second of support you give me, and have given me for years. Thank you. I love you all so much.
100% complete
AHH WHAT. If we reach this goal, I will have the support I need to create my next online course. Not only that, but these funds will sponsor at least one person in need per program to be able to participate for free. I am so excited to continue sharing the messages of compassion and wellbeing in this new way. Thank you.
