Hi there good-looking!

My name is TJ and I eat a lot.

I really appreciate you for stopping by. Patreon is a platform that lets you support creators on a reoccurring basis. You can contribute $1/video or $1/month - it's totally up to you!

Patron pledges goes into the following:

  • Food & Transportation Expenses: a single video can cost anywhere from USD $20-150 in meal expenses. While I do my best to contact a restaurant in advance to exchange a meal for media coverage, it is very difficult in Asia due to the language barrier and I just end up paying for it all. Video food expenses can rack up to $600/month. If flights and transportation to and from film locations are included, total expenses usually rack up to $2500/month.

  • Hiring a Team: Running a channel is very much like running a business. For a while I did everything by myself until I was dying inside a little (ok a lot) so I had to call in help. One of my team member is a social media assistant who helps me schedule posts and now helps me plan the logistics of my trips abroad. My next team member is a cameraman who helps me elevate my video quality and lets me focus on hosting. Both team members are so important in keeping CupofTJ running. I hope to hire an editor this year who can clean my clips before I edit a video. This will actually allow me to upload 2 high quality videos a week consistently.

  • Gear Maintenance & Upgrade: After saving up patron pledges for a few months, I was able to purchase a 35mm lens for close-up food shots and a new microphone for crisper, clearer audio. I cannot began to explain how much patron funding helps my videos improve. Incredibly thankful for this platform and for my patrons.

I've always been hesitant about promoting my Patreon page because. well, I don't enjoy asking for money at all. But I realized it'd be a big disservice to myself and my work to have created free content for three years and still be afraid to ask for support from my viewers. To keep this channel growing, I need help all the help I can get.

I am forever grateful for people's love and viewership. In no way do I expect anyone to contribute financially. But if you do, please know that you're helping produce bigger and better videos. That your contribution will go so far in growing this channel.

Thank you for being here and for believing in my work. I appreciate you, so much. Thank you.

Hugs,
TJ

I'd upload around 6 videos every month. Hope this gives you a good idea of how much you'd be pledging. You can also set a monthly max.

If this goal is reached in 2019, that means we can add on an additional film trip to....KOREA! We're going to dig up all the food and travel gems in Seoul.

Help me make it happen!
