Hi! My name is Krista Suh, and I am the gal who created the Pussyhat, which seemingly overnight became the worldwide symbol of modern feminism and the resistance. The Pussyhat has been on the cover of Time Magazine, in museum institutions around the world, and in closets and on heads of feminist people everywhere! In 2018 I released my book on creativity called DIY Rules for a WTF World, published by Grand Central Publishing - it's so exciting to see that people are responding to my feminist creativity tips from Denmark to Cincinnati to Brazil, and even in my hometown of Rowland Heights, CA.

I wear many hats:  the Pussyhat of course!  I am also...
*a self help author, specializing in feminist creativity + activism
*a YA fiction author, specializing in creating Asian American representation in stories our teenagers and teenagers-at-heart read
*a screenwriter, specializing in romcoms about AMBITIOUS women (enough with the movies and tv shows about slacker guys, seriously :)  My work has been optioned by Fox, sold to feminist comedy production companies, and has led me to some of the coolest friends ever!
*an Artist (teehee notice the capital A):  My work has appeared in Art Basel Miami, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and random bathrooms in Los Angeles.
*an app developer - I have a ton of apps in the pipeline, but the ones you probably are most familiar with are the PUSSYHAT EMOJI messaging stickers for iPhone and Android!
*a greeting card designer - I've always been a fanatic and connoisseur of stationery, even starting my own letterpress line in my 20s (which I'll share about in a post!). Now, in 2019, I am releasing an amazing line of cheeky feminist greeting cards - new ones are coming out all the time.

Yes, it's a lot of hats, but no matter which hat I wear, my message is simple:
You Can Have It Too

So many times, I see women WANT something, and immediately talk themselves out of it. Whether it's another slice of cake, justice for rape, a spa day, work-pay equality, a glamorous life, it doesn't matter what it is, the majority of women need to hear, "You can have it too."

Your desires are not OUT there in some ethereal insubstantial place, they are RIGHT HERE, within reach.

I've spent a lot of time learning this, and now I hope to spread the message and my practices to people everywhere so that the world experiences a revolution of peace, joy, creativity, and respect and awe for femininity

A note about my tiers:

My tiers are named "Encourage Me," "Nurture Me," "Equip Me," and so forth, and this is intentional. The tiers are based on this principle of influence:  You cannot influence others without allowing yourself to be influenced as well. Thus, you can not encourage me without allowing me to encourage you. I can not equip others without allowing others to equip me. We can not liberate others without allowing others to liberate us. It's completely humbling, and in my experience 100% true. It is my hope that when you encourage me by joining and giving $3 or more a month, I hope you are also encouraged by my posts, presence, and creations. Instead of the "Follow me" or or "Friend me" actions I see on other social networks, I find these verbs so much more empowering and magical.

I hope you consider joining me on this journey! It's gonna be super fun - this is my laboratory where the brainstorms happen that later flower into the projects you see me put out into the world. And perhaps most importantly, your monthly contribution liberates me from having to answer to patriarchal institutions - that liberation is a huge huge gift for an artist, and allows me to put more art like the Pussyhat into the world, for the people. If you cannot afford to contribute at this time, thank you for at all considering to do so and reading this far! Please check out www.kristasuh.com where I put up as many free goodies as I can.
Tiers
Encourage Me
$3 or more per month

You get 1 post a month from me (but psssst... it's really more like 10 posts a month!  I like to underpromise + overdeliver).  Get insights into my wacky mind and let that encourage your own creative flow!

Nurture Me
$9 or more per month

3 posts a month (though I usually do more! Think: 30 posts/month).  Sample topics:  how to network even if you're an introvert like me, how to make work fun, how to hone in on your purpose in life, how romcom story structure is helpful in real life, nail polish color names.

Trust Me
$25 or more per month

The above plus a sneak peak of upcoming projects and my behind-the-scenes processes at least once a month. See how I pack for trips with my very-detailed planned outfits (including which pair of Spanx lol), peek into my google spreadsheets systems and get snaps of my current whiteboard brainstorming.  Also see which greeting card designs didn't make the final cut, and get fascinating insights into the details of kristasuh.com no one else knows.

Equip Me
$50 or more per month

All of the above PLUS a monthly gift in the mail!!!  Every month I choose a different item in my shop (sometimes even before it's released to the public). You'll receive a promo code for the free item (if you do not use it that month, it will be donated to an awesome young woman in high school or college!)  Gifts will be a mix of surprises, art prints, mugs, t-shirts, sweatshirts, books, journals, etc.

Love Me
$100 or more per month

All of the above - posts, sneak peeks, a gift item in the mail monthly AND recognition on my website by name to acknowledge my top supporters.

Mentor Me
$500 or more per month

The above plus your advice will be treasured on biannual reports.  Have a say in where kristasuh.com is going!  You have my ear.  Reports generally come out in July and December along with a detailed survey to share your thoughts.  This is like being a board member, but with none of the boring parts, just the fun parts of guiding an organization that does good in the world!

Liberate Me
$1,000 or more per month

All of the above plus a 30 minute video or phone call once a month to discuss your questions about DIY Rules for a WTF World, the creative process, how to make your life better by incorporating feminism in your thought process, etc.  You get my full attention on whatever you want help with in your life.

Marry Me
$15,000 or more per month

I will be your "wife" for one year and make your life better as we have fun on a marvelous experiment.  All genders and marital statuses welcome.

Goals
8 of 500 patrons
When I reach 500 patrons, I will launch Phase I of a new app that allows us all to be artists.
