Pledge $1 or more per month
YOU GET TO BE ON A BOARD. You know how sometimes someone says they're on some advisory board and they sound fancy? That's kind of what happens here. After pledging, you'll receive a link to join our "inner circle" email list, which we'll use when we need feedback or suggestions or when we're lacking disciplinarians and need someone to put our asses in line. We also might let this list know about upcoming plans for the site before we announce them publicly. (This all goes for any pledge from $1 up.)
Pledge $3 or more per month
THREE'S A CROWD. Don't know what that means but it was a famous saying involving the number three so I ran with it. In any case, for the price of a cup of coffee (in New York at least) a month, your pledge will add up to a very meaningful amount over the course of a year.
Pledge $5 or more per month
ALL CHINESE EMPERORS CAN READ WBW FOR FREE BECAUSE OF YOU. More than 1 million people visit WBW each month, and if each of them pledged just a penny, we'd hit our goal. None of the 494 emperors in China's history have pledged anything yet, but your monthly pledge has them all covered.
Pledge $10 or more per month
YOU'RE KIND OF A HEROIC PERSON. Pledging $10 or more a month puts you in hero territory. We all have a handful of monthly $10 costs, and we seriously appreciate you carving out one of yours for us.
Pledge $25 or more per month
I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE, BUT I HAVE FEELINGS FOR YOU. After a year at this level, you'll have singlehandedly covered a full week of WBW hosting. Legit.
Pledge $100 or more per month
I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS EVEN A TIER. No site should ever expect this level of generosity from any reader, and if anyone decides to donate at this above-and-beyond level (which single-handedly pays for a month of our hosting over the course of a year), just know that somewhere out there, we're drowning in an uncomfortable amount of gratitude.
