AYO - so here I am, asking ...

Here's the deal. I'm a #grownup now and have debts and monthly payments, and while I'm continuing to support my creative work, it's not really supporting me. I still make YouTube videos, but earn about £100 a month from them (if that). I’m flailing a little. All I want is to keep doing what I do. This is how I like it but I need support. Hopefully you’re here because you like what I do too and you might wanna throw me a buck or two.

I’ve tried Patreon a couple times over the years and always felt a bit weird about taking money from people because I have a lot of pride. But there’s nothing wrong with you liking my work and there’s nothing wrong with me accepting your support. I’d love to figure this out with you as we go if you’re willing to be part of this with me.

Please help however you can and I promise I’ll do everything I can to earn it with the best fucking art I can make. We’re here to make this work together, and we will.

Let’s do this. <3

Love,
Alex

frequently asked questions:

Q: “why per month??“

A: I did a Twitter poll asking people how they’d prefer to give and Per Month was the winner. It also works for me cos I make lots of different things (videos, music, books and more) and I know some people are only here for one thing or another; it feels unfair charging people random amounts of money at random times for random times. A general giving seems simpler.

Q: “I wanna give you bitcoin.”

A: Sure! Wallet address: 1Ku9ZQDmCHUN1tRzmWMBzxBLoTu2ENkH2L

Q: “What if I just wanna give you one-off money now and then?”

A: You’re welcome to pledge for a month and then cancel it after the payment goes out - just do that whenever you feel able. Or take the ten pounds you have (for example) and give me £1 every month so it’s all spread out, increase/decrease as you see fit? I dunno mate, whatever makes you happy :)

Q: “how much actually helps you?“

A: everything helps :)

Q: “does Patreon accept PayPal?"

A: Yes :)
