Hey my names Isaac and I'm the creator of the Tragedy & Hope YouTube channel. I started this channel back in 2011 with no intention of it ever growing as much as it has. 

What started out as a simple hobby and as someone who had no experience in video editing has grown far beyond anything I could have ever anticiapted.

I could have never imagined when I started this channel that it would lead me to having over 100,000 subscribers,  over 20 million total views,  a Facebook page with almost 50,000 followers, one of my videos being recognized and shared by National Geographic and now recently a blog.

All I have ever wanted to do is share inspiring messages with the world, and I am truly humbled by the way it has grown.

Why Patreon?

As some of my subscribers have probably noticed I have not been able to release videos anywhere near the rate I once did. I am sure that many probably thought that I had ran out of material or ideas to share, however, this is not the case. The truth is, that I simply haven't had the financial capability to keep releasing videos.

You see my channel started out with simple editing and mashing together of various pieces of audio, footage and music but this ended up running me into a lot of trouble with copyright.

So as my channel began to grow and my editing skills developed, I eventually and naturally had to progress away from this basic form of editing and onto a more professional form of editing through the use of purchased footage and music.

Doing so gave me access to a whole range of high quality footage and music, that was able to vastly increase the quality and strength of my videos.

However this footage does not come cheaply with most videos costing anywhere between $500 to $1000 each to produce.

This amount is far above what I currently make a month on google adsense, so it has really put a halt on my ability to create new videos. I truly love making these videos and would love to be able to make them on a more regular basis but this requires money.

In the 4 years that I have run this channel I have taken very little of the profits for myself either from YouTube or from the kickstarter campaign back in 2013 almost all revenue has gone into creating more videos.

I never began this channel or have created these videos with the intention to make money, I do it because it because I love making videos and because I believe the world needs more of these types of messages.

I do however believe that money when used properly can be a powerful tool for good and for change. And that is what I am looking to achieve by starting this Patreon campaign.


What is Patreon?

Patreon is a bit like kickstarter but instead of just raising a one off sum of money to fund a single large project. Patreon allows for consecutive smaller amounts to be raised by giving fans the ability pledge their support on a monthly basis.

What do you get in return?

Aside from the fact that you will know that you are helping to have these messages shared with the world and that without you these videos would not have been possible. You will also get access to a range of different rewards depending on how much you choose to pledge.


To Conclude:

I will be truly grateful for any and all pledges to support this channel, $1 a month might not sound like a lot but a little can go a a very long way. So please if you do choose to support this channel do not pledge anything that is beyond your means just pledge whatever amount you feel like you can. And know that I will be so grateful for your support.

The amount listed to reach in the goal section is the amount I will need to have freedom to be able create videos with ease. I am not looking to earn anything above the amount shown in goal. If by chance I do end up earning above the amounts listed, then I will extremely humbled and grateful for people’s generosity and will use the excess to the best of my ability.

Thank you so much for the interest in my Patreon campaign.
