WE’RE DOING IT. We’re live now with our crowd sourcing platform on Patreon.
Plan B is a huge community initiative that is going to take a lot of work, support, and dedication from so many lovely people that it just seems right to make our next step using Patreon.
There are a lot of smaller costs that we need to cover as we develop Plan B. This is why we chose Patreon. Patreon is a funding platform that allows artists, musicians, starters, dreamers, and creators be financially supported by communities in exchange for small packages. The way it works is that you, a patron, can make a donation to Plan B and recieve a craft box to the size of that donation. This can be a one-time donation or a recurring donation every month. The beauty of Patreon is that we can gift you with queer crafted goodies for every dollar you give!
The purpose of our Patreon is not cover rent or pay any organizers’ bills. No, that isn’t what this is about. This Patreon platform is intended to cover:
– event space or venue space
– purchasing refreshments for our drop-in hours at SPECTRUM
– purchasing a web site domain
– reimbursing organizers for travel directly related to incorporating Plan B
– paying artists, musicians and entertainers at events
– paying for crafting materials like paper, card stock, paint supplies, fabrics, wood, canvas, and anything else we need to make your craft boxes on Patreon.
Yeah, this is a thing. Get ready. Here it is again!
