Bite Size Vegan is all about saving animals and changing lives by creating new vegans and arming current vegans with the tools they need to veganize. And now, for a limited time, you can help me make one new vegan and get a second new vegan free! And get cool stuff! I probably need to elaborate a bit…
At the end of October, I posted a video asking for your support to keep Bite Size Vegan going. The response has been overwhelming and the community that we’re building over on Patreon is beyond what I could have asked for. For those of you not familiar with Patreon, I’ll go into more detail about it later, but in short, it’ a platform through which you can support creators whose content you find valuable and, in exchange, get fun perks and rewards.
Because this video post will be talking some about money, which can be a touchy subject and not terribly entertaining, I interspersed the video with adorable footage of my dog Ooby, so even if you couldn't give a shit about the activism of Bite Size Vegan, you’ll still enjoy yourself. (But you'll have to watch the video for those…can't really accomplish it in the written post ;( )
In my October video introducing Patreon, I explained more in depth why Bite Size Vegan needs your support, so today I’ll keep it brief. Bite Size Vegan requires, on average, 70-90 hours of work a week, whether researching, writing, editing, filming, promoting, or what have you. My recent video on horse racing alone took over 30 hours to produce.
Luckily, we have a dedicated staff of. Me. And Ooby. So just me. And I am working to find different ways of making Bite Size Vegan sustainable so through it I can keep educating about veganism and making new vegans–you can check out some of the testimonials to see the impact the project is having. And that's not to toot my own horn (that's what broccoli's for), I’m honestly still amazed that anyone watching my videos at all! These testimonials mean more to me than I can say–the fact that the videos are having any effect makes all the effort more than worth it. I appreciate every single view, comment, subscriber, and share.
So, here is the crux of it. I have had a very generous anonymous donor step forwards and offer to do a 1:1 match for one-time donations to Bite Size Vegan up to $1,000 before December 31st in a Double-Your-money-Direct-Donation-December-Drive. So any assistance you give will be automatically doubled until we either reach $1,000 or the end of December. and just to be clear, one-time donations are separate from the Patreon page, but either form of support is greatly appreciated.
You can join in the drive by clicking on this button:
And hey, if you can’t give or don’t want to, that’s totally okay. You can continue to watch my video and used my website for free. I don’t think anyone should have to pay to hear the message. There are many ways to support Bite Size Vegan non-financially and you can learn more about those on the support page.
You can also support Bite Size Vegan by working with me directly whether through vegan coaching, YouTube mentorship, or video services.
And I promised to say a little more on Patreon. Depending on their pledge amount, Bite Size Vegan patrons, known as members of the Nugget Army, get fun stuff like hi-five shout-outs, Bite Size Vegan stickers and buttons, live Google+ hangout with me, discounts on my services, gear from the Bite Size Vegan Zazzle store, and more.
And regardless of the pledge amount, all patrons get access to my Patreon feed where I really let my hair down. I know my videos tend to be pretty polished and you may think I’m some vegan robot in an artificial blue landscape. But I promise I’m a real person!
We get real personal over on Patreon–I ask for input on new ideas for Bite Size Vegan and really and truly value the opinion and input of my patrons. So, if you’re wanting an ongoing community experience, head on over and join us in the Nugget Army.
But for this month in particular, if you want to help spread the vegan message and you’ve found my videos to be an effective method of doing so, get in on the Double-Your-Money-Direct-Donation-December-Drive action and double your impact!
And if we do reach the $1,000 by December 31st, I will do a serious happy dance and post it on my channel for you all to see my insane moves, which I gave you a taste of in this video. (I got mad skillz.)
I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, regardless of the form it takes. I’m 100% sincere when I say I value each and every one of you. And thank you as well to the anonymous donor who has made this generous offer.
The cheapest way to show your support is with a thumbs up for the video, by sharing it and this blog post around and commenting! Never undervalue those actions! thank you for all of your support!
