Why Magazine is creating a struggling artist's platform

Hey and welcome to Why Magazine's Patreon! 


Why?

After many years of fighting with pressures coming from different directions, I decided to start writing about all the questions bothering me. Why am I failing? Why am I working for free? Why do I feel unaccomplished? Why is nothing changing? Why being a creative person is so difficult? Why do I keep on sacrificing everything for passion instead of giving up, leading a simpler lifestyle?
While I had no answers to these questions, I wanted to know if there are more people feeling the same way. Turns out there are plenty and they've been sharing their own stories on a platform that has quickly grown from a personal blog to a community of artists embracing the failure of creative lives

Mission

I'd like this community to keep on growing because it's actually much more fun than it might seem! There is something so inspiring in uniting voices of all those people who pour your beer or get your order at the restaurant. They have fascinating lives of never giving up, no matter the cost. Being one of them - a writer, a graduate, a waitress, I've already been working on this platform full-time and have a big dream of us making some changes in the underfunded arts sector and too often exploitation of people in hospitality industries. But here's that catch - there is no money in arts. We're not the cool kids. Quite the opposite. We're too busy cleaning tables and chasing dreams to become Instagram influencers. That's where Patreon comes in. 

You

By becoming our Patreon you make it more possible for me to focus on Why Magazine and reward everyone else working on it, too. So you're not just keeping the platform alive - you're giving a huge confidence kick any struggling artist and trust me, there is nothing more important than your work and voice being acknowledged and paid for, no matter the amount.
As a patron, you can choose a pledge that is most appealing and that amount will go to us every month. And most importantly, you can cancel this at any time you want. In return, you get plenty of fun perks like live-streams, Q&A, meetups and insight into crazy and creative lives of people that we usually watch on cinema screens. Ready to find out if any of these stories will have a happy ending? 
Tiers
Water
$1 or more per month
You're literally keeping us alive which is why we're giving you an access to patron-only stream. You'll be able to see every aspect of Why Magazine production, kind of like coming backstage and being able to share your thoughts - all of which will always be replied to!
Coffee
$3 or more per month
Creating requires caffeine so to thank you properly, we're putting your name on our wall of fame (or in other words, a page dedicated to our supporters) and all of the 1$ rewards
Beer
$5 or more per month
Cheers! How about having that beer over a live feed with us every other week? It might be me breaking down, Q&A with you, interviews - anything we're up to. Plus all of the 1-3 $ rewards
Wine
$15 or more per month
Clink! Wine is so important for Why Magazine. It's an artist's drink, helper of creating. So while all Why content is available to anyone, you'll get a cute sneak peek of stories to come and see progress of creating them. And all of the 1-5 $ awards
Prosecco
$25 or more per month
Feeling dizzy here! You must really like Why so why not carry us around in a tote bag with that beautiful spilling wine glass Why Magazine logo? It comes with all the $1-15 rewards, of course
Goals
15% complete
We'll throw a little party for everyone involved in and supporting Why. So if you're around, we'd like to see you! If not, how about some live stream?
