Consider pledging or donating today

Post by Shannon » Mon Nov 30, 2015 8:06 am

We are excited to announce we have officially launched our new Patreon campaign today! Please check it out ,there is absolutely no obligation to join but if you do what to you can . We have had a Paypal "donate" button for awhile on our Youtube home page and thought Patreon may be something new to try as many Youtube channels are now using it. I will post links here to the introductory video and also one to the Patreon page where you can see more info as to how it works if you are not familiar. Please do not feel any obligation to join if you do not want to, all of our material is staying FREE to use, NOTHING is changing with the way that works! Thanks :D

UPDATE:
We have been having requests for other ways to make Individual donations to us in support of our channel and website other than Patreon. We do have a Paypal account that will handle that but we do not have a button on the forum yet so I will post a link to our Paypal here for now .
Thank you to anyone using it!

Shannon, I am glad to see this Patreon campaign, and I am pleased to become a sponsor.

Your videos and forums have already helped me immensely, both as a person learning exactly what I can do on my own, and financially, since I figure you have already saved me six or seven thousand dollars by helping me gain the confidence to build a shed on my new homestead, instead of purchasing a pre-built at Home Depot.

I hope to continue learning from your videos for quite some time to come. It's all been very exciting!

P.S. I bought a Paslode just like yours and all my guy friends are extremely impressed... this machine is probably the best four hundred dollars I've ever spent!

Thank you blaze ,We have been trying to send a personal thank you to everyone on Patreon as the pledge so I hope we got you on there all ready but if not..Thank you very much.
For those people sending a one time "tip " on our Paypal button we would like to thank them as well but it is a little tougher without giving out our direct email so we have not been able to send personal thank yous. But to them we send a big thank you as well!!

We do not, that was a limited time campaign for shirts. If we do something in the future, we'll be sure to post on Facebook, Twitter, and make a video for YouTube.

Hey, can someone repost the Amazon affiliated link again? I saw it mentioned once, but no idea where. Is it good for all purchases or just tools/home improvement stuff? Thanks in advance!

The head honchos will have to repost those. I say that they should be prominently stickied somewhere for easy reference.

You can buy anything you want, any purchases you make sends a little spiff to the site for referring you there. No cost to the buyer. Win/win for all. This is an easy way to support any site you frequent that uses affiliate links. 8-)
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Yeah, yeah . . . I've seen them, just couldn't remember where to find them.

You know, I'm the one that's supposed to do the teasing around here! :| :mrgreen:

Here is our link to Amazon.com:
https://amzn.to/2kAyuv2

And the link to Amazon.ca:
https://amzn.to/2qGZnya

Whether you buy books, diapers, groceries, electronics, tools, or literally anything, if you use those links before adding to cart and checking out, we get a small commission of the sale at no cost to you.

We are affiliated through these links with Amazon and will receive a small commission from Amazon for any sales you make using our link. So the link is completely run buy Amazon and all sales are handled by Amazon completely. Please give it a try if you like and let us know what you think of us trying this.

Thanks.

NOTE: We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
Well well well, you're right, that's exactly where I saw it and couldn't remember, I'll just leave this here in case it ever helps anyone.

And no teasing, Sprucey! You had a good (albeit crotchety :P) idea, they're just stickied in my least-frequented part of this place.
