Hey! My girlfriend has been unemployed since like March because of The Virus, so she's taken the time to work on building up her Etsy shop. She just released a bunch of jewelry for Wrath Month and has some older things up as well. It's all handmade and part of the money from her Wrath items will get donated to some local nonprofits in her area.

Support your queer artisans!

So my friend posted this not to long ago but i just noticed this bit that I missed the first time:

"As an added incentive to helping our work, I'm dedicating ALL of my personal profits from the sale of For Hire: Audition (which stars a Black trans woman) to The Okra Project (a collective that provides meals to the Black Trans community)."

I was the one who originally told him about that charity and this feels really awesome to find out.

We're planning to make this something that folks who want to accept money from Stripe/PayPal/Gumroad/Patreon/OpenCollective/Apple In-App Purchases can use with as many "channels" as they feel comfortable with.

This way if say, Patreon starts (cough, continues) shitting the bed when it comes to fees folks can migrate to using Stripe directly on their static websites.

please only vote if you are a BIPoC and have experienced persistent harassment on the fediverse

imagine your instance had a feature where your mods and mods from other instances could quickly and easily share block/bans across fedi, to more rapidly and thoroughly respond to toxic behavior, and to combat users who ban evade by switching instances

would you feel overall safer on the fediverse? would you want to use fedi more or more often?

everyone please boost :boost_ok: 🙏
