What we have is content that we feel is important to us, to the arts, and to our home: the Maritimes. We're doing what we can to support our artists, musicians, brewers, actors, and crafters, and we hope that in turn it makes life a little better for all of us here. We could use a little support ourselves though. If everyone donated $1 a month we'd be able to pay our writers actual salaries. If everyone donated $2 a month we'd be able to take on bigger projects, get interns, and a coffee maker. We'd be unstoppable.So please, consider donating to our Patreon account.
