About

I’m hoping Patreon will be a place for people who’d like to engage with Humans of New York beyond the stream of daily stories. I feel like HONY is most impactful when the stories speak for themselves, so I’ve done my best to keep my voice off the blog. But here it will be different. This will be more of a personal space where I’ll share my process, my thinking, and my ideas for the future of the blog. Occasionally I’ll ask for your feedback. Humans of New York will remain solely about the stories of other people. This is where I’ll share the story behind Humans of New York.

A pledge of $1.50 a month will unlock all the content on this page. If you can afford to give more support, that is great but not necessary. I like the idea of having an ongoing, intimate conversation with the people most invested in Humans of New York. I like the idea of our connection not being dependent on the algorithms of Facebook or Instagram. And yes, I’d love to have a stable source of funding to travel, and innovate, and grow. I want Humans of New York to be a lifelong body of work. And a big part of that is always being able to find the people who care about it most.

We’ve done a lot over the past eight years. We’ve raised over $12,000,000 for charitable causes around the world. We’ve shared nearly ten thousand stories from forty different countries—free of charge. And none of that will change. Humans of New York will always be free and I’ll keep posting on a daily basis. Anyone who is unable to give right now will not notice a change. But if you’ve enjoyed the blog in the past, and would like to contribute to it’s future, I hope you’ll consider becoming a patron.
