Hello!

Thank you for visiting my page. I'm Rachel Andrew. I am working on CSS and helping people to understand CSS through my work at the CSS Working Group, and via sites such as Grid by Example.

Why support me?
As an Invited Expert to the CSS Working Group, I'm a volunteer. Working on the specifications I am co-editor of, and their test suites, phoning into the weekly meeting and paying for flights and accommodation to attend the face to face meetings, these are all funded through the tiny company I run with my husband. I also spend time creating sites such as Grid by Example, and putting together my weekly email CSS Layout News.

By supporting me you essentially give me more time to spend on these things. Things which hopefully will benefit everyone who uses the web. If the community could fund a few days work each month, I'd put them to great use, as I hope my track record over the years shows.

Can't some big company just pay me to do this?
Possibly! If I just wanted to work on CSS and the web platform then maybe the best route would be to get a job at a browser vendor. However I also feel it important that there are independent people involved in the standards process. I try to speak for web designers and developers, listen to your feedback and present that in any discussions, I'd like there to be more people like me involved in that way.

Rewards / Support Levels
I've tried to create a few options, for those of you who have found something I've done useful and would like to support me, to companies who might be willing to sponsor my ongoing work.

It should go without saying, that supporting me at any level doesn't give you any special route to get things prioritized in CSS, I don't have that power! However I'm certainly happy to help supporters understand how standards creation happens, and how to become more involved themselves.


Tiers
Basic Level
$1 or more per month
If you find the stuff I do helpful, a way to say thanks!


Includes access to my Patreon only feed, I'll share what I'm up to, and share some CSS-related tips.

Expert Level
$10 or more per month
For anyone at this level, I'll invite you to a webinar at least twice a year. I'll present on some of the things I've been working on and take Q&A. I'll try and make these at different times to cover timezones, and record them to share with anyone at this level who can't make it.
Community Sponsor
$100 or more per month
Support my ongoing work.

Includes all previous tier benefits plus a text link and mention in things I publish to any of the sites of content channels I own, eg:

* Grid by Example
* CSS Layout News
* CSS-related posts on rachelandrew.co.uk
Corporate Sponsor
$800 or more per month
Become a major sponsor of my work. In addition to previous rewards, I'll hop on a call for an hour once a quarter. You can use that time for whatever CSS-related thing you like, or to keep me up to date with things you are doing that might interest my community.
