Who is Tito Tim?

In 2012, after 25 years in the HVAC industry, and 16 years as a single dad, I decided to retire (at 48) and move to the Philippines. I moved over here on Valentine’s Day 2013. I am chronicling my move and immersion into the Filipino lifestyle. I am a disabled Navy veteran just enjoying my life in Iloilo, Philippines.

My wife and I would love for you to join us on our adventures around the Philippines. If you enjoy our videos you can be a monthly donor. Give as much or little as you want, and for as many months as you wish. The more supporters I get the more we can show you of this amazing nation of over 7,000 islands!

Thank for viewing.

Why Am I Using Patreon?
3 Main Reasons

  1. My main goal is to do more charity work and, quite frankly, that takes funding. Monthly sponsorship will allow me set up regular charity events. Travel, video equipment, and editing time also add up a lot. So show some support and get more content. Even a small contribution would be a big boost to my morale - and encourage me to create more videos.
  2. Many of you guys have asked if there was a way to support me and be more involved. As an option for some of my biggest fans Patreon allows us to work together to help the kids here, as well as keep us connected.
  3. YouTube protection. Lately YouTube has been doing some strange things such as failing to notify people & unsubscribing fans without their knowledge. There is almost no creator support or way to contact YouTube if there is a problem. Patreon allows me to have an exclusive platform to stay in contact with my greatest fans like you.
How Much Should I Support?
You decide how much you want to support, as low as $1 a month. It is setup up as a monthly subscription and you can easily cancel at any time.  On my newer videos there is also a link to a single gift via Paypal. In case monthly sponsorship is not the option you want.

Can I Still Watch Your Videos Free?
Yes, all the videos I put up on YouTube will always be free In fact Patreon will allow me to improve the quality, consistency and variety of videos I upload to YouTube. Sponsorship is totally voluntary, but will help me provide a lot more, and better, content.

Can I Stop My Subscription?
Yes, if you decide it's not for you anymore, or money is tight, please feel free to opt out. You can always come back later if you want. Or don't, it is completely up to you. I don't hold a grudge - we can still be friends ha ha.

Why Do You Make Videos?
I am making videos for fun and entertainment. I have been told by many subscribers that they appreciate my positive outlook. I try to be honest about the Philippines - not overly negative, but no rose tinted glasses either. By sponsoring me not only will you give a huge boost to my morale, but allow me to do more charity work, get better gear, and do more traveling. Thus creating much more content!
Tiers
Pledge $1 or more per month

Every dollar helps. If you donate $1 a month you will have my heartfelt gratitude, and a shout out on a video.

Pledge $5 or more per month

For $5 a month you will get my heartfelt gratitude - and a shout out on a video. Also, you will get early access (email link) to any videos I upload & schedule*. I try to have 3-6 uploaded and scheduled (but sometimes there are none ha ha).

Pledge $10 or more per month

For $10 a month you get the gratitude, a shout out,  early access viewing*,  and will be listed on the end credits as an Associate Producer.

Pledge $25 or more per month

For $25 a month you get the gratitude, a shout out, early access viewing *, and will be listed on the end credits as an Executive Producer. Plus we will do a video on your choice of topic, within reason (sorry I am not parachuting into a volcano).

A note - not really a tier
$5,000 or more per month

**** The 'early access' to videos in the other tiers is limited to 50 people as of Jun2019 (a YouTube limitation).  The early access is completely dependant on YT for availability - therefore it is subject to change or be removed... depending on YouTube policy.   If I ever get too many Patrons (we can dream ha ha) I may have to move it to a higher tier to maintain less than 50 people. Right now, it is not a problem.
