Who is this guy?
My name is Jared Rydelek. I am a professional entertainer and an unprofessional traveler. Years ago I decided to do something crazy: Create a YouTube channel where I document every fruit in the world. I didn't know it at the time, but there are well over 70,000 species of fruit in the world and what I decided to do was impossible! Still I am stubbornly trying to do it anyway and having the time of my life in the process. This series has brought me to 25 countries so far, I've reviewed hundreds of fruits and there is no sign of it stopping! 

What is Patreon?
Patreon will give you a chance to help support my video series in exchange for rewards and lead to better content overall. Don't worry, videos will always be FREE on YouTube whether you contribute or not!

Why should I give you my hard earned money?
Here's the thing. I'm not asking for contributions to make a profit, I'm doing it to feed a habit! I spend a lot of time and money making these videos and it only brings in a small amount of revenue. I would like to get my hands on more weird fruit, expand my series, travel further, bring you more content and have better quality videos! To do this I need a bigger budget than what YouTube provides. 

What do I get out of it?
Besides helping me improve my channel and keep the series going, you also will get some great rewards! Take a look at the reward tiers to see what you can get!

How it works!
Watch the video above for how to sign up properly. Or follow these 5 EASY steps:
1. Choose how much you want to give (as low as $1 a month)
2. Select the tier for that amount. 
3. I charge patrons for one video per week. So if I post 6,358 videos in a week, it doesn't matter- you will only get charged for one of them. 
4. If you pledge $5 a video you would get charged $20 that month (4 weeks)
5. If you don't want to pay that much, you can type in the maximum amount you want to pay per month. So you could select the $5 tier and put a $5 maximum on it. And only pay $5 a month!

If you have any questions, just send me a message!


Tiers
Early access!
$1 or more per video
Get to see videos DAYS before they go live on youtube. I generally post one episode early, so you'll be watching episode 7329 while the rest of the world will only be watching 7328.


You also will get to see messages that are only available to Patreon supporters (not including exclusive videos).

Exclusive videos!
$2 or more per video
You will get to see special videos only available to Patreon supporters. These are videos that I wouldn't be posting online otherwise. It could be: an outtake from a long episode, a review that I decided against posting, a partial review that i'm not ready to post yet, a video of my cat... who knows! Videos are posted 1-2 times a month generally. Upon signing up you will gain access to an archive of a bunch of exclusive videos I've already filmed.
Thank you!
$5 or more per video
You will be included in the thank you credits at the end of all future episodes while you are a supporter! 


This can be your name, your website, your pets name, whatever you  want! Must be under 20 characters and nothing obscene please. 


You also will get all the other rewards up to this!

Shout Out!
$10 or more per video
Special on screen shout out in one upcoming video! Plus all other rewards
Mystery souvenirs!
$15 or more per video

You will get random surprises from me sent through the mail. 


What will you get? It will probably be something fruit related that I pick up from my trips. But it could be anything... a toy? a postcard? a worthless autographed headshot of me? a cursed monkey's paw? some candy? There is only one way to find out! 


You must be an active contributor to continue to receive items.  Things start arriving once your first payment processes (takes up to a month) and then even more things every two months.  


You will also get all the rewards up to this one!

SEEDS!
$15 or more per video

Same as the Mystery Souvenir reward but with the addition of seeds thrown in for any growers out there.

With this reward, I will send you random gifts as stated above with the addition of seeds thrown in when I find them. 


I will make a SEED ALERT posting here on patreon that will be visible to all contributors that have selected this perk. If you want the seeds I have available please send me a message or reply to the alert. I may also throw some in to packages without notice if I get something cool right around when I'm planning on sending something anyway. 


Since seed can be time sensitive, I will send out additional shipments on occasion, separate to the regular mystery souvenirs. 


This perk was made in response to the dozens of "send me seeds!" messages that I get each month. But alas I am not a grower or professional seed seller. I'll do my best, but I cannot guarantee that the seeds will grow in your region, how often I'll get them, the amount of seeds, that they will be good by the time they get to you, etc...


Seeds only available to Patreon supporters in the USA. 

Big shout out!
$50 or more per video
A short on screen shout out thanking you for you help will appear in all future videos* while you are an active contributor.

A link to your approved website can also be plugged on request.

Plus all other rewards


*Big shout out will be placed in the standard endscreen for fruit review videos. Special videos (weird world explorer, junk food, etc) and end-cards with a one-time shout out (new members in the $10+ tier) may or may not have big shout outs included. 

Fruit Hunting Adventure!
$100 or more per video
To reward your obsessive fandom, I will personally take you on a fruit market tour in NYC, film it and (if you'd like) post it online. You must pay for your own travel/food/accommodations and you must NOT be insane to qualify for this reward. You also will get all the other perks. 
Goals
55% complete
PATREON CHOSEN TRIP!
If I reach this goal, there will be an extra special fruit hunting trip anywhere in the world!
-First I'll open the floor to suggestions on where exactly that trip will be (only safe places that have lots of fruit available please)
-Next I'll create a poll of the top suggestions and you can vote on where I go! (I'll include my own suggestions in the poll if we need more options.)
-Finally I will keep you updated while I plan the trip and you can help me decide what to look for and see. 

Its time to get serious and go on an epic adventure!
