Who I support

I had a realization yesterday: although my income right now is at one of the lowest points of my life, I support more artists and organizations than I ever have.

This giving grew from a combination of influences:

  1. Patreon started to become more popular, and my wonderful artist and musician friends started using it for support.
  2. In grad school I made a steady income for three years, which allowed me to start donation habits.
  3. I have been successfully and religiously budgeting my money for almost a year now, which has built an easy confidence that I have room to donate.
  4. The recent cancellation of so many musical events has encouraged my musician friends to ask for help, and it feels great to help them.

I feel richer when giving my money away.
