I have friends who are artists, writers, musicians....creators. Just about every one of these folks has a day job of some kind and as an artist myself, I can attest that it is very hard to finish a full day's work and then create. Some of these friends have turned to Patreon - a place where people can pledge anything from a one-time donation, a monthly donation, or even on a 'by creation' basis. Its pretty cool.
Of course there are 'premiums' provided to those who donate, but there is also an option to give without getting anything back - I like that because while I love to support my friends, I feel weird about them having to give me something in return every time (unless its baked goods). The point of giving is to help but how much am I helping if they have to spend some of that money in order to give me something back?
Anyway - if you have a few extra dollars some time and you want to share the wealth, have a look at Patreon (there is a link on my giving back page). There is a lot of interesting folks and projects out there - enjoy!
