Appreciate my work?

Besides my other creative work, I invest a minimum of 60 hours and $500 every month to bring you my family of newsletters and to float the Raft. For these and other gifts, I charge no fees. I run no sponsored ads. I simply do what I love to do, in the hope of feeding your spirit.

If my work sustains you, please consider supporting it with a one-time or recurring contribution. Regardless of amount, your generosity will enable me to continue “making” for you and a host of others.

If you’re already a reader patron, thanks so much for feeding my fire!

Changing or Canceling Your Recurring Contributions

Recurring (or “subscriber”) gifts are automatically drawn on a monthly basis at your designated amount. If life prompts you to change or cancel your contribution schedule, please carefully follow the instructions below, which I’ve gleaned from the platforms that handle the contributions. Please understand that I don’t control your contribution information. I’m unable to advise you further.

To change your recurring contribution (“subscription”): It seems the only way to do this is to cancel your existing contribution (directions below), then set up a new one (directions above). So clumsy! Thanks for your patience.

To cancel your recurring contribution (“subscription”): Please know that I appreciate your past support.

  • If you’re been gifting me through a credit/debit card company, please email me from the address with which you signed up to contribute. I’ll take it from there.
  • If you’ve been making your contributions through Paypal, please follow these instructions on how to cancel a subscription. Unfortunately, Paypal can be quirky. If you encounter problems, please contact customer support.
  • Note: If you cancel your recurring contributions, you’ll continue to receive my newsletter(s) unless you click the “unsubscribe” link in any edition and complete that process.
