First off, thanks for taking the initiative to click on our pledge button. Many of you have asked whether you could donate. And we’ve always said, “Thanks, but no.” The Diaries are stories that come from you, they belong to you; we are merely the curators. They should be free, and will remain so.

But, to those of you that have asked to throw in a few bucks, to those who the Diaries has helped give that nudge to quit a bunk job, to find happiness that isn’t defined by normal, to move closer to the mountains that give you such joy, please consider pledging today. Regardless of how marketing budgets may shift, we are committed to keeping the Diaries going for as long as we can.

Help us make sure that the Diaries are there for the next person in need of that nudge. That gift is yours to give. No matter how much you pledge, your support helps us continue sharing the stories of our community.

We do have a few additional incentives:

    • $50 donations will receive a Dirtbag Diaries koozie
    • $100-$249 donations will receive a “Fun Divided By Three” T-shirt.
    • $250+ donations receive a “Fun Divided By Three” sweatshirt.

(If you already have one, thanks! Leave us a note through the magic of Pay Pal. We’ll get you something else.)

If you want to set it and forget it, we have a Yearly subscribe option. Every year, you’ll pledge your support anew. Until you ask to be taken off the list, which we’ll do immediately, of course. But why would you want to do that?

Alternatively, if you’d like to pledge old school, you can mail checks (made out to Duct Tape Then Beer) to:

1314 NE 43rd Street, Suite 212
Seattle, WA 98105

I’ll make a ONE TIME pledge of

All pledges made through PayPal will be listed as made payable to Duct Tape Then Beer, our parent company, which is really just us.

Thank you, thank you!

Fitz, Becca, and Jen
