New reward tier - Flyers

Post by brimstoneSalad » Mon Sep 25, 2017 10:46 pm

I added a new reward tier on patreon if anybody wants to sponsor a particular flyer for outreach.
https://www.patreon.com/philosophicalvegan
(This would probably be the kind of reward tier that you just sponsor for a month, then switch back down to something else)

There have been a few threads discussing this before, and the shortcomings of other material out there, but it takes a lot of work to put one together and I've never had time because I have to do other work. My guess is 3-4 days for writing, research, formatting/"photoshopping" etc.

I set it at $200 because of the time it will take; like with Wiki articles if I can at least get close to $10 an hour I can take time to focus on this instead of other work each day. Otherwise I just have half an hour here and there which is fine for posting, but which is not enough time to get "in the zone" and get serious work done.

Anyway, at most I think I could do two a month (I still have to do some other work because under $10 an hour is not enough to pay the bills).

If anybody's interested, we can figure out what kind of flyer you want to make.
It would be released under some sort of creative commons license, so anybody could take the file to a print shop and get a bunch of them made up.

Just thought I'd put that up as an option. Any thoughts?

I'm willing to help with the formatting and stuff if you want. I don't think I can be convincing enough to actually write why people should go vegan (I know reasons why, I'm just not sure how to phrase it). Maybe someone can help with that?

Thanks.
Beyond an outline, formatting and writing for this kind of stuff go hand-in-hand because there's such limited space. I have to write while formatting (I can only go off notes). The limitations are what make flyers so tricky, really.

We can make it a community effort, or maybe one or two other members can help out.

That level of coordination is really tricky and can take more time than just doing it. But we can try it if you want.

Is there a way to make a one time donation? I couldn't find that option.
How to become vegan in 4.5 hours:
1.Watch Forks over Knives (Health)
2.Watch Cowspiracy (Environment)
3. Watch Earthlings (Ethics)
Congratulations, unless you are a complete idiot you are now a vegan.

Not automatically, You just have to delete your pledge (or change it to $1 or whatever) after the month. They send you an email confirming the charge I think.
