There are a lot of great creative projects on Patreon worth supporting, but since I’ve just joined (support me here), I thought I’d highlight the ones that I’ve supported because of their awesomeness.
1. Crash Course — Education
We create free, high-quality educational videos used by teachers and learners of all kinds. That’s all we want to do. After 200,000,000 views, it turns out people like this. And our videos aren’t just for schools; the majority of our viewers, around 60% – 70%, watch Crash Course without being currently enrolled in an associated class.
So far, we’ve taught Chemistry, World History, Biology, Ecology, US History, Psychology, Big History, Literature, and we’re in the middle of Anatomy and Physiology, Astronomy, US Government, and World History (again.)
2. Amy Davis Roth — Atheism, Art, and Education
Every dollar will help me buy art supplies, pay for prints and allow me the time I need to focus on the work. And remember, you can set your limits as to how much you are willing to give per completed project. My goal at this point, is to try to complete one scientist-reviewed painting per month but with help I may be able to do even more!
Help me follow my dream to be a more prolific artist and help me make art that educates and inspires for years to come.
3. Sakimichan — Art and Art Education
My Name’s Sakimichan: ) I’ve been drawing since I was a kid and I’ve never loved any other hobbies as much ad now thanks to all my patrons I can draw to my hearts content and improve at the same time, I’m very grateful for that ! I’m open to suggestions from my patrons so don’t be afraid to post on my activity feed, I enjoy bringing you guys happiness with my creations : )
4. Brute Reason — Atheism and Education
My blog, Brute Reason, covers social justice, psychology, mental health, sexuality, and other stuff I care about. Most of my writing touches on issues like consent and autonomy, direct communication, community building, and rational thinking. Although my writing often persuades people, I’m more interested in giving people tools to live more happily, think more clearly, and act more ethically. I aspire to be compassionate, charitable, reasonable, nuanced, and honest in my writing. Integrity and accountability are very important to me. My writing is often personal, because I want to remind others who struggle with the things I do that they’re not alone.
5. Rebecca Watson — Atheism and Education
I created the Skepchick Network, a collection of blogs focused on science, critical thinking, and sarcasm. I write for outlets like Popular Science and the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. I have an asteroid named after me. Also, I make videos. For many years now, I’ve made YouTube videos about the topics most important to me, like science and women’s rights and video games. My goal is to create shareable videos that are both entertaining and (usually) educational.
And I’ll include mine here again just in case you’ve missed it.
