Hi, Steph Bird here! I created Birdanity, a resource for all people and including those with mental health struggles. I’ve put everything I have into supporting my community through art and writing. And I work hard to make sure I do it in a way that’s accessible to just about anybody.

Today I'm motivated to make an impact and learn more about topics like gender awareness, suicide awareness, disability justice, and so much more. And I couldn't do it without you.

Many of you asked how you could support me. And at first it felt a little weird to ask for money, because money was never the goal. But with time and nearly going homeless, I realized that with the help of patrons like you, I could do this work in a more sustainable way.

Because here’s the thing: Right now, in 2018, it’s more important than ever to ensure that independent media — created by and for marginalized people — has a place in our world.

Bloggers are a critical part of the equation, as we are accountable to you, our readers, rather than stakeholders or advertisers. You also get to know us and interact with us directly, and that connection alone is so, so powerful.

With a blog, we don’t have to answer to the big wigs in the industry who filter our stories through a particular lens. We have total ownership of our stories.

I’m passionate about Birdanity, and if you’ve landed on this page, I suspect you are, too. That’s why I’m asking you to make a one-time and/or monthly donation — even if it’s just a dollar per month — to make sure that our resources can thrive well into the future.

Note that your contribution here on Patreon will help with basic living expenses. I haven't been feeling well for quite sometime, and am still trying to navigate through the medical playing field with as much grace as possible. Presently, I lead an extremely minimal life in California. My financial long-term goals include paying off all debts, including educational and medical expenses. 
Thanks & in advance for any financial support you are able to offer!
