Why Support Plaedo?

Hello Good People,



My name is Plaedo and I lose a lot of sleep at night awake dreaming and scheming of a better world. Likewise, I wake up in the morning motivated to make a positive difference. People who follow me, often ask me how i can work so tirelessly and be so motivated. I tell them it’s because, making a positive change is what I’m meant to do with my life.

l used to make decent money as a salaried salesman, but I worked on average about 50-60 hours a week and I had little time to fully express myself and do what I am best at. So I quite that job. Because I know, my life’s purpose is to hosts events that bring people together to learn from each other such as, “Creating Connections: Solidarity Through Storytelling”, “Talking Poetry and Philosophy in Pajamas” and “Unleash Yourself: Day of self care, artistic expression and homesteading workshops”. I am here to be a co-founder and lead organizer of the Eugene Avant Gardeners, starting gardens and fertilizing sustainable just food distribution networks. I am here to mentor at risk street youth and teach classes such as, “Live Your Myth, Plot Your Path”, “Befriending Shadows”, "Hacky Sack Philosophy" and “Art and Social Change”. I am here to be a story telling hippie hop philosopher of play whose uniquely fun, funky yet intelligent and inspiring blend of rapping, poetry, comedy, live looping and story telling has proven to edutain (entertain + educate) crowds. With a career built off performing at varied places such as: universities, coffee shops, protests, bars, rave's, poetry slams, and even street corners, my wide ranging lyricism poignantly, intelligently, and humorously covers personal tales from the school of hard knocks, eco warrior anthems, meditations on philosophy, celebrations of nature and gardening, and those stories we tell to humble and heal ourselves.

This work is my purpose and my work is my service to the world. Through it, I seek to inspire, educate, and empower people. Therefore, In order to eliminate barriers to participation, my events and artworks are donation based, free, sliding scale. This is how I know I can help make this world a better place at this pivotal point in history.

What The Pledge Will Go Towards


I am good at what I do, read my reviews online. but I have financial restraints that prevent me from helping the world at greater levels. Often I don't have money to properly release my art and message to the world (It took me months to save up enough free $ to buy a cheap video camera to record the video that I shot for my Patreon account!) I have had to turn down out of town speaking gigs and festival performances.

Patreon can change all of that. Patreon is a platform that connects creators with fans and supporters. By making a monthly donation through Patreon, your support can help me to travel, tour, and organize at a greater, broader scale. It will allow for me to develop shirts and prints with my artwork to create revenue streams. Your support could allow for me to hire video directors and music engineers as needed, it could help me get new gear as old gear breaks. Your support will help me teach to, perform for, inspire, educate and empower more people. It will help gardens get built and communities be created.

If you believe in what I do, and if you believe in me, please donate to my work. Whether you donate 20 dollars a month or just 2 dollars a month, it is all appreciated. I live simply but my ambition to positively influence the world is great. Your Donation will go to good use!
