Steam it Forward - Impossible Gears on Patreon

Impossible Gears organises steampunk events of all shapes and sizes in the North East of England and beyond. We are, and have always been, committed to offering the best possible experience at the lowest possible cost - we even coined a term for it, 'Skintpunk' (for non-Brits, 'skint' means 'lacking in funds')- however, due to a number of causes, there are more and more steampunks who find themselves unable to attend events due to financial issues. Over the years we've helped people attend events when they've had difficulties, but we can only do so much. We have decided to address that by creating 'Steam it Forward' on Patreon. Steam it Forward will allow steampunks to help steampunks on reduced income to remain/join the wider steampunk community by coming to our events. Being skint can isolate you, set you apart from others, and is generally depressing - I think many people can empathise with that. What can be worse is feeling like that, and then seeing your friends having a wild old time at a festival or party that you just can't afford. Going to an event can be hugely beneficial to someone going through hard times; it can make you feel 'normal', part of something bigger, or just offer some respite

Steam it Forward will try and help as many people as possible, either by offering reduced price tickets, free tickets, or free child tickets to those who need it most. Tickets will be exactly the same as regular tickets, so there is no stigma on those who accept them - if an individual wants to tell folk that they've been helped then they can, but they never have to. If you need help, you can contact Impossible Gears via the Contact Form on www.impossiblegears.com and tell us a little about your situation in absolute confidence - Every penny/cent coming to us through Patreon will go towards including more people in events - we won't be able to help everybody, but we can help as many as we can

Contributors to the Patreon will get perks in return for helping others - early access to information on upcoming events, early or extended access to earlybird deals, or even discounts on tickets and merchandise
