patrons

$104
per month
I'm Sparrow Rose Jones, Autistic author, artist, speaker, activist and advocate.
I am traveling the United States to promote autism acceptance and increase Autistic Happiness.

I am increasing Autistic Happiness through:
* writing about happiness and the barriers to achieving it
* making videos about happiness (and barriers to it)
* presenting at universities, conferences, bookstores, etc.
* discussing Autistic Happiness with others who are seeking the same goal
* interviewing people who care about Autistic Happiness
* creating community around the topic of Autistic Happiness 
* sharing my own life as one example of Autistic Happiness

Your patronage supports me to focus on this vital and necessary work.

You can see some of my work at:
The Unstrange Mind Blog
The Unstrange Mind Facebook Fan Page
The #AutisticNomad YouTube Channel
My RedBubble T-Shirt, Sticker, and Art Site

In my books:
No You Don't: Essays From an Unstrange Mind
The ABCs of Autism Acceptance (coming soon)

In my contributions to anthologies:
Typed Words, Loud Voices
The Real Experts

Tiers
Travel With Me
$1 or more per month 8 patrons
You will be added to a behind-the-scenes group with exclusive content where you can learn where I am, where I'm traveling next, and what I'm working on. You will get Patreon-only video and writing content including being the first people to see what's in new books I'm working on.
Support My Video Work
$5 or more per month 3 patrons
Everything at the $1 pledge level plus recognition in the credits of every #AutisticNomad YouTube video produced while you are a patron at this level or higher. Beethoven's patrons got their names printed in the libretto when the 5th symphony debuted. Not that I'm comparing myself to Beethoven, but I am totally comparing your awesomeness to Beethoven's patrons! 

Hint: This is a great place to promote your blog or business. At your request, I will include one URL of your choice along with your name in my video credits. The main audiences you will be reaching are: Autistics, thrifty/adventure travelers, transgender people.
Help My Work Grow
$10 or more per month 4 patrons
Everything from the $1 and $5 pledge levels, plus your URL will be in the information box on YouTube as well as in the scrolling credits. You will also get recognition in the acknowledgement section of the next book I write while you are a patron at this level or higher and a personally autographed copy of the book(s) in which you are acknowledged, thanking you for your support.
Goals
$104 of $400 per month
For $400, I can upgrade from my current video camera (a 2012 iPad mini) to a GoPro Hero4 camera with extra battery packs and a 64 GB memory card. 

Not only will this upgrade dramatically improve the quality of sound and picture in my videos, but it will be a mark of professionalism that will open doors, enabling me to interview busy people who are working hard to increase the amount of Autistic happiness in the world.
