Welcome to my Patreon page guys!

On the 21.05.2015 I made my dream become reality I started my solo adventure world trip around the globe. I was only planning on traveling for 1 or 2 years and afterwards I wanted to return to my old office job. Now more than 4 years later I am still on the road thanks to you guys ! As you already know it is quite difficult for me to make a living with just uploading videos to YouTube. The YouTube algorithm is not really reliable. Most months my income from advertisements on YT is lower than 1.000 US$ this does not cover my costs so if I want to turn this into my profession I have to ask you guys for some help. I actually do not feel a 100% comfortable with asking others for help but I finally overcome this fear and hear we go 

It would be freaking awesome if you can support me with a dollar or two, I would be forever grateful. Your support means the world to me whether you share my videos with your friends and family or you even consider to support me monetary. I appreciate each and every one of you.
All the donations I receive go towards my travels and my videos, I always try to improve my video skills. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to donate for every Video ? 
No you do not have to donate for every video. If you want to support me monthly with for example "one dollar a month" you are more than welcome to do that. To do that is very simple you just need to click on "Become a Pateron" and afterwards you have the option "I’d like to set a monthly limit" you can set that to whatever you desire. Thank you so much even thinking about to support me.
 
Do I have to pay in US Dollars?

No, all currencies are accepted. Patreon is a US-based company, so it's displayed in dollars, but you can use any other currency and it will be automatically converted.

When will I be charged?

Your card will be charged the day you become a patron and on the first day of each month thereafter.

Can I stop donating in the future if I can't afford it?

Yes of course! You can cancel your pledge whenever you want.

Can I change my pledge?
Yes, if you ever want to increase or decrease your pledge, you can do so at any time!

I'm still confused. Can you help me?

Absolutely! If you have questions about using Patreon or encounter any problems with the signup process, the Patreon support team is really friendly and helpful! You can send them a message by clicking here.

Thank you guys so much,

Simon

Goals
4% complete
I am finally able to fund all my camera/tech equipment and also all my travel expenses without relying on someone else like third party advertisers or YouTube revenue. This would be a real dream of mine.
