Bite Size Vegan is creating Free, Open-Access, Vegan Educational Content

patrons

When I started Bite Size Vegan, I didn't know if anyone was going to see my videos, but I wanted to at least try to make a difference for the animals, and our planet.

Over the years I've tackled many hard-hitting topics—putting in thousands of hours to make complex topics and right-to-know information accessible, approachable and free for all.

Since the day I sat on my floor in front of my computer and recorded that first video—in all its webcam-quality glory–Bite Size Vegan has grown so much! No longer "just a YouTube channel, Bite Size Vegan has become an ever-expanding library of research-backed vegan educational content, resources,and outreach.

I've spoken around the world, delivering in-depth speeches, written specifically for the particular audience—and always completely free.

No one should have to pay to hear the truth!

Bite Size Vegan is currently in a major phase of growth and change—for one, it's now a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization! (I know far more about tax codes now than I ever wanted to...) 

While you may not be seeing the break-neck video production & publication I (somehow) upheld for over 3 and a half years, I'm hard at work making Bite Size Vegan into it's next phase—an even more comprehensive resource for non-vegans, new vegans, and activists alike.



What It Means To Be A Patron

When you become a patron of Bite Size Vegan, you are saying that vegan education is important and vital work. You are taking a stand for the animals. You are enlisting in the Nugget Army and fighting for the liberation of all beings and the eradication of ignorance-based cruelty. I truly believe that education is where the vegan movement is going to gain the most ground.

By changing minds, we save lives.

As a patron, you'll be with me "behind the scenes." It's not just an inside look, either—as a patron, you'll have the opportunity to shape the future of Bite Size Vegan. I often share what's in-process and love hearing everyone's thoughts and input. When you join the Nugget Army, you're not just supporting the educational outreach of Bite Size Vegan— you're a part of it.



The Impact

Over the years, I've received messages from people all over the world who've gone vegan because of Bite Size Vegan content and speeches—from 5-year-olds to 75-year-olds, entire families, and even the most hard-core militant meat-eaters (and in at least one case, adamant hunter!) I will never cease to be amazed by these stories of change!

And while my primary intention with Bite Size Vegan was to reach non-vegans, I've heard from existing vegans who have—through the videos—found the confidence to speak up and take action for the animals. This has increased the impact of my own efforts exponentially, and I'm so grateful to each and every person who has raised their voice.

[You can read some of these testimonials throughout this post, and find even more here.]


Why Your Help Is Needed

Because the issues surrounding and inherent to veganism are so important, yet so easily and quickly rejected, it's vital that I present well-researched and documented information, which of course takes ample time and effort to produce!

A single video—along with its cited article—can take me over 200 hours or more to research, write, film, produce, and animate. And speeches require months of intensive research and preparation.

Apply this to creating 1-3 videos a week consistently for over 3 years, and you can imagine why Bite Size Vegan grew beyond me! It's only with my Nugget army that we can create a sustainable future for Bite Size Vegan.

 


What About One-Time Donations?

The Patreon platform does not currently support one-time donations, outside of pledging and then cancelling your pledge after one charge. However, there are alternative ways to support Bite Size Vegan financially.  You can always make a one-time donation (or recurring) through PayPal, or if you prefer something more concrete, check out the BSV Wishlist.


Where Does Your Money Go?

Your pledge goes directly to the creation of more vegan education. Outside of Patreon's and credit card processing fees, all pledge funds go directly to the Bite Size Vegan 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.

Some of the major expenses at the moment are:

  • A full-time, salaried staff member 
  • A large-scale overhaul of the website, bringing Bite Size Vegan resources into ebook and ecourse formats, and making the growing library dynamically searchable so that everyone from a non-vegan seeking the truth to an activist seeking guidance can find the resources they need.
  • Ideally, bringing on independent contractors & consultants for all the areas I've been juggling as one person

Some of the ongoing expenses (fun!) include:

  • All the exciting tech stuff, like web hosting, online storage, cloud backups, databases, and so much more (are you bored yet?)
  • Accounting, payroll and legal services—necessary for a nonprofit, but oh-so-expensive (yay, grown-up stuff!)
  • The data storage and hardware to store all of the data as Bite Size Vegan continues to expand (SO MUCH DATA!)
  • Video making stuff like lighting, cameras and such



What If You Can't Give?

If you're not in a place to support Bite Size Vegan financially, that is more than okay!  There are so many ways to help out, including:
  • Volunteering your skills to help with the (not so bite size) workload
  • Subscribing to the channel (be sure to "enable notifications" by clicking the bell after subscribing),
  • Watching the videos & sharing them in every place you can think of!
  • Encouraging people to check the website and to connect with me on YouTube, FacebookInstagramTwitter
  • Suggesting BSV to podcasts, magazines and websites for potential coverage
  • Shopping through the BSV Amazon,
  • and anything else creative you can think of!

Whatever you do to support Bite Size Vegan, I am so very grateful! I genuinely appreciate each and every one of you- without you, I'm just a vegan in front of a camera - but together we can change the world. 



Thank You!

Thank you for considering supporting Bite Size Vegan. I will keep doing my very best to be an effective voice for the animals and forever keep my focus on their plight. Much love to you and all my thanks!
