Hello deathlings! 

It is I– Caitlin– your mortician. 

In addition to my work at The Order of the Good Death, I make videos that pull back the black curtain of the death industry, share morbid tales very seldom told, and debunk death-related myths.

Having donations from Patreon over the last two years has completely changed my channel. In 2014 I handled editing and research myself and made at most one-two videos per month.

Now, in 2017, I make a new video every week and have been able to welcome both an editor and a researcher/writer to the team to take us all even deeper into our macabre history. That's all thanks to you!

Two housekeeping items: 1) Any money you donate goes to The Order of the Good Death nonprofit, not directly into my pocket.  2) I have never placed ads on my Ask a Mortician series on YouTube.

How Patreon Works


Unlike a Kickstarter (where you donate a larger amount of money to one big project), Patreon is ongoing.  It's easy to sign up.  You pick a donation level- $1, $3, $10, etc, to be charged each time I upload a brand new video. 

If you're worried about me suddenly uploading 12 videos a week, it's very simple to set a monthly cap, so you never are charged more than your limit each month. 

Rewards

See below for the rewards I've set for pledging, everything from physical items (handwritten postcards) to exclusive online content FOR YOUR EYES ONLY.

It's a huge deal for me to ask for help, and even if you are unable to pledge, remember that just sharing the videos (which will always remain free) and sharing death positivity is more than enough. 

THANK YOU.

Goals
2000 – reached! patrons
Can you even IMAGINE if our lil' death show had 2,000 patrons?  CAN YOU IMAGINE? At this level we'll be able to purchase new equipment to take the show to the next level, including camera rigs for travel, new lighting, and a new HD camera.  Much of my equipment is from 2013, and it's starting to say "help me mother, mother I can't go on."
