Room Escape Artist has a long and distinguished history of being bad at business. We have always been slow to ask for money or charge for much of anything… but almost two years ago we launched a Patreon because enough of our readers told us we that were silly for not having done so already. And we are so thankful to you for persuading us.
This month we triggered the $1,000 per month goal that we had created (and then forgot about) when we formed the Patreon:
“When we reach our goal of $1,000 per month, we will share the names of all our backers in at least one blog post a month to thank you publicly for your generous support.”REA $1,000 Per Month Goal
Lisa and I were so pleasantly surprised to hit this goal, especially in the current economy. We’ve had a lot of supporters have to withdraw because their finances couldn’t justify it this year, and we totally understand that. And at the same time, we’ve been amazed that we have picked up much more support than we lost.
Each and every supporter means so much to us. I’ve long wanted to make REA my job, and these folks are helping me inch my way there, step by step by step. We do this because we love it. But, in truth, the folks who help us financially do so much to take the pressure off – whether it is directly through Patreon, by attending our Escape Immerse Explore Tours (both 2020 tours were postponed to 2021 – details will be available soon) or Virtual Escape Jams (the RECON Virtual Escape Jam was a success and we have another one coming soon!), or by supporting indirectly by clicking into Amazon through any of the links on REA.
We’re working on a dream here, and we have so much appreciation for the people who are helping us make that a reality:
