Aww, Feathers! is a family friendly, anthropomorphic, slice-of-life webcomic.  It takes place in Utah Valley and features a fun and diverse cast of characters.  It updates on Tuesdays and can be read for free at awwfeathers.com.
Aww, Feathers! has been such a fun project to do, and I intend to continue creating new pages to the story as long as I have material for it.  But I need your help.  If you enjoy Aww, Feathers! and would like to see it update more often, please consider a monthly pledge; your support can make it happen.  A pledge for Aww, Feathers! is a pledge for clean and uplifting online entertainment.

What is this Patreon thing anyway?
Patreon is a way to financially support ongoing projects so content creators can continue doing what they love to do.  It's kind of like Kickstarter, only instead of a one time donation, you can pledge to donate a certain amount every month for creators to continue to make new content.

Does this mean you're going to start charging for Aww, Feathers?
No.  The comic will still be available online for free for everybody.  However, I'm currently not able to update it as often as I'd like to.  If we reach certain funding goals, I'll be able to update more frequently, and there will be some goodies along the way for those who help us get there!

What's the difference between the Goals and Rewards?
The goals to the left and at the top are for pledge total per month (from all patrons added together, minus processing fees).  When a certain goal is reached, it may unlock rewards for everyone, regardless of how much they pledge (removing ads or increased update frequency for example).  The Rewards listed to the right are individual rewards for each patron and depend on the amount you pledge.

How much should I pledge?
As much or as little as you are able!  No seriously, even just a dollar a month is a big deal (several thousand times better than ad revenue in fact).  And if a bunch of people pledge a small amount, it adds up very quickly.  And don't worry; if you need to change or remove your pledge in the future, you can do so at any time.

What if I want to make a one-time donation, or use some method other than Patreon?
That is completely fine! If you would like to make a donation through paypal, please go to paypal.me/awwfeathers. You will get all the same rewards as if you had contributed through Patreon. Access to exclusive content will be made available on a private channel in the Aww, Feathers! Discord Server.

What are these "goodies" you mentioned for those who pledge...?
I'm so glad you asked!  Take a look to the right to see what you get with each patron level!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Goals
$53 of $100 per month
I will do a silly dance. No really! To celebrate reaching the big one-oh-oh, I'll put on my Ine suit and dance my heart out. It'll be hilarious! Patrons will get to vote on a setting and a style of dance, and a stream will be set up so they can watch it live! A video will be provided after for those who miss the stream.
