For the past year I’ve been supporting a creator through the crowdfunding site Patreon. It’s a paltry amount each month, but it helps them to continue to do what they do.

Is anyone else a “patron”? What moves you to do this and how do you decide who to support.

According to Patreon, it is “Thank you Patron Day”. A few facts they shared on their website that I found interesting:

As of 2019, creators all around the world have earned over $1 billion dollars on Patreon.

The internet would have to watch 131.6 billion ads to make creators $1 billion dollars.
