Shoshanah Shear

is creating books and visual art that inspires, offers beauty and hope

Welcome! I am an occupational therapist, healing facilitator, author and multi-talented creative person. I'm on a journey, combining my professional background with my range of creative skills to write books, write and illustrate workbooks and produce a range of products.
I have an end goal in mind to develop a full OT centre with a special service to empower widows and orphans. The extent to which I succeed along this creative journey is very much up to the extent to which the right community comes together. You see the vision I have can not happen on it's own. Not without huge wealth. I am very grateful to each and everyone who takes a part in this journey.

An example of my Art and Occupational Therapy can be seen here


HOW PATREON WORKS:

I have tried a number of crowdfundraisers in my journey to fund my centre. Then I stumbled upon Patreon. Patreon is different to regular crowdfundraisers, even though it has some similar elements.
What I love about Patreon is the idea of having Patrons become a part of the the work and products of a creative person. I am so excited to have found Patreon. For me this is an incredible gift.
If you are able to contribute any amount - even a dollar I would be so grateful. Every dollar helps me to reach my goals. 

WHERE YOUR $$$ GOES

I currently have a kids book out, a book to promote occupational therapy and the start of a number of products seen in my online store www.creationsfromjerusalem.com

I have the plans for 8-10 further books and a series of workbooks. Preparing the workbooks requires writing, illustrating, editing and formatting. Since I love to draw, this is a wonderful excuse to improve my drawing skills and illustrate the workbooks myself.

I also have ideas for further health related products all drawing on a combination of my occupational therapy experience and creative skills.

The more I work on promoting OT, my work and more, the more I love what video has to offer.

All of this takes time and the appropriate equipment. Your support enables me to take the time to complete writing and editing my books. To improve my drawing skills and prepare the illustrations that I need. To set to work to produce further videos and more. Would you believe the latest video that is uploading as we speak has taken from early morning until evening to complete.

When I can finally reach my goal of being financially stable, I am to begin creating work for widows and orphans. There are many fun tasks on the go that are rapidly paving the way to improve the lives of others. To me this is OT in action. It's evolving, it's a work in progress.

AMAZING REWARDS!

I am in the process of revising my rewards. Stay tuned for updates to this section of my Patreon.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Well, since I am fairly new here, the truth is that I have not yet had a lot of questions. If you have any questions, do be in touch.

In the meantime, my first question was a request to bring the $1 tier back again. I am busily doing research into appropriate rewards, including what tiers are most suitable. I will be altering my rewards to just 3 tiers for now. Keep visiting for updates to our rewards.

What I can say is, if all you can afford is $1 and you really love what you see or hear of what I am working on, please come on board. I'd be very grateful for your support too.



Tiers
Family Patron
$1 or more per month
Join my Patron Family. I am so excited that you have decided to join my Patron Family.


- You have access to my Patron only stream. I will check this on a regular basis.

 
- Patreon only 10% discount in my www.creationsfromjerusalem.com

Blog Patron
$10 or more per month
Your support means so much to me. I recently began sharing a blog post that includes photographs that show or highlight the beauty of Jerusalem. Your support at this tier will enable me to share these posts on a regular basis. Ideally I'd love to share them 1-3 times per week. You will find these posts on the blog of www.creationsfromjerusalem.com

As a token of my appreciation, you will receive:
  • The rewards of the previous tier. 
  • An inspirational email entitled: Words of Prayer, Words of Kindness to be written once a month. The ideas are universal and offer inspiration, hope and so much more. These emails take at least an hour to prepare. Thank you for enabling me to get back to sharing this content with others. 
Credit for your Thanks
$50 or more per month
  • Thank you so much for enabling me to focus on completing my workbooks. Your assistance gives me the freedom to devote to the writing and illustrations of a series of workbooks. As thanks for this support, your name will be mentioned in a special thank you page in each workbook.
  • Plus all previous rewards
Video mention
$100 or more per month
Thank you so much for your support. You are giving me the opportunity to create quality videos with tips from my years of experience as an OT. Producing quality videos takes time. There is thought and preparation for the video itself and then hours of editing. My goal is to produce one a week, but I will begin with one a month. Frequency of these videos will depend on the number of Patrons who come on board.

* As thanks for your support, you will have a mention in a slide of thanks at the end of each video that comes out thanks to your support. 

* All previous rewards come to you too.

Goals
4% complete
A recent change in my health has prompted me to set this goal. I am currently battling two viruses. There is nothing that allopathic doctors can do to assist. All they say is vitamins and 2 months of lots of rest.

I am not well enough to go out to work and my work from home is currently limited.

If I can have support of $2500 a month, I can spend:

- half an hour a day drawing to improve my drawing skills and prepared the illustrations for my workbooks and
- half an hour a day writing.

I hope and pray that the creative process will help me to heal. I will be keeping my patrons up to date on progress of my books and workbooks via patron-only posts or videos.

Thank you for helping me to use my skills for good for others and to increase my chances of regaining my health.
