I'm working on spreading awareness for ADHD as well as providing ADHD-friendly tools that can make life with it less challenging, more awesome. I put up a new video on youtube.com/howtoadhd every week.

Making these videos is really time consuming -- between research, writing, shooting, editing, posting and promoting, they each take me and my producing partner/husband Edward between 40-80 hours.

I also do advocacy work beyond the channel, writing articles, speaking on podcasts, giving TEDx talks (above) -- really, anything I can that helps further global understanding and support of ADHD.

There's nothing in the world I'd rather be doing, and your support is what makes all of this possible. <3 THANK YOU <3

You're a "Brain Advocate!" You care about getting the word out about ADHD, and you're helping us do it in a really significant way.  You're the reason I can drop everything and fly to Slovakia to do a TEDx talk, or go on podcasts to talk about ADHD, or create videos for teachers to share with their ADHD students to make them feel special. Every month you contribute at this level, we'll feature your name in the credits as a "brain advocate." You really deserve that credit, since you're making the advocacy work I do possible!

Goals
$9,184 of $10,000 per month
PROFESSIONALLY PROFESSIONAL
Thanks to a very generous donation, we have enough money to be full time through February 2018.  If we can reach this level before then, Edward and I can CONTINUE to work on the channel full time, which means: 

* A DAILY behind-the-scenes vlog: 
Part of Jessica going full-time means she's had time to record a behind the scenes vlog – if we reach the PROFESSIONALLY PROFESSIONAL level, Jess can keep this vlog up daily, while still researching and making content for the channel!

* More content
We have a BUNCH of things we need to finish putting together: additional material from interviews we've done, special bonus episodes with "buddy system" meditation, the behind-the-scenes from our wedding, and a whole bunch more.  Being full time means we have the time to get all that out the door!

* "How to ADHD" in the classroom! – I can start developing talks and materials to share with schools around the country, to spread ADHD awareness in the classroom! My goal: "a basket of fidget toys on every teacher's desk!"

* Expanding the channel – We're quickly becoming more than just a YouTube channel – we're becoming advocates for ADHD and mental health in general.  After the TEDx talk, opportunities have been coming in to do speaking engagements (possibly write a book).  Your support will give me the time to develop content for advocacy in other arenas beyond YouTube, with the goal of educating and empowering _more_ people to spread the message of ADHD awareness and supporting ADHD children and adults in the U.S. and around the world.

* AND CRITICALLY
I will FINALLY have time to practice my ukelele!  Which means... SONGS!
