If you are here, thank you for your support already and for your desire to make the world a better place! Let’s do this together!  

Since 2016 I have created 150 videos that have been viewed over 200 million times!
What’s important though is that people aren’t just watching the videos--they’re watching and then taking action.

I’d love to make even more videos that contribute to a better world, but I need your help. Your contribution of as little as $2 a month can help change the world.

Here are a few examples of what my videos can do:
In summer of 2016 I visited and produced a short video on David Young, an urban farmer in New Orleans. The video quickly went viral, reaching over 20 million views. Viewers donated over $10,000 to his nonprofit, local news stations came out to his farm and did stories, his inbox was flooded with people wanting to volunteer, and his Facebook page grew by over 7,000% from 347 likes to over 27,000. This all happened in just a few weeks.


Debbra Arndt, the woman growing a garden to feed the elderly in her neighborhood, raised $4,500 through a fundraiser that I created for her and the Facebook page I made for her grew to over 7,000 followers. Since then local news channels have covered her work and she was recognized by the Missouri House of Representatives. Before I made the video, she told me over email that nobody listened to her. Now she’s gained respect and a larger voice in her mission to see the elderly taken care of!


Earth.Food.Love, The zero waste shop in the UK said, “We got overwhelmed with emails from all over the WORLD asking for help and advice to set one up of their own.” As a result they created a guide to helps others start zero waste shops in their community and it’s been used by many inspired people!



Brijette from San Diego Seed Company said, “We have gotten more orders from your video in this last week than the whole last year!”

The Refill App to Help People Ditch Bottled Water received enough support and interest through our video that they were able to launch their app globally.

And those are just a few examples!

My videos serve as accelerators to the people featured, bringing in funds, volunteers, and media. A financial contribution to my video production does much more than just make these videos, but rather multiplies the funds via the donations that come into the people featured as a result of the video. The videos also help them increase the reach of their own social media channels. 

The funds you contribute will mostly be used to pay filmmakers, editors and my video production assistant. It will also go to promoting videos, data for to cover live events, and miscellaneous costs such as website hosting fees, editing software, and b-roll.

Your funds will allow me to keep both my website and my YouTube channel completely ad free. That’s the way it’s been, and, with your support, it’s the way it will stay. By becoming a supporter, you make it possible for me to remain an independent voice, so I don’t have to answer to any advertisers, politicians or corporations. I can cover the truth because I don’t owe any favors and I don’t have to worry about clicks or views to generate ad revenue.

Not a dime of this money is going to pay for my time. I survive by living simply and giving speaking engagements. Your pledges go directly to my 501c3 nonprofit, so it’s also a tax-deductible donation. (Note: You can also make a one-time donation to my nonprofit if you prefer that vs. making a monthly donation).

I can't do this without you, so if this work is important to you, please become a monthly supporter. I've chosen some great rewards, so besides helping in my mission, you'll get something personal out of it.

To be clear, all my content will still be free to view on my social media and website, like it’s always been. Just like independent media outlets such as The Guardian, I’m offering my content for free, but asking for your support so I can keep going. This website, Patreon, is a fundraising platform that makes it easy for you to be a part of this work.

The bottom line is that by becoming a supporter of my work, you’ll allow me to bring a voice to the voiceless, to accelerate the growth of sustainability and social movements, and to grow my channels at the same time.

Let’s make the world a better place together! Please become a supporter!
