Our Stories Deserve So Much Attention
I cannot stress enough just how vital I feel this space is. Putting in all these woman-hours is no easy feat though. A month ago I created a Patreon account for Raising Mothers in an effort to help support the upkeep of the site, the writers (and eventually illustrators and photographers). This is very much our space as much as it is solely mine.
It is my plan to grow this space to be a robust and fully engaged community. I want to be a platform for voices that are marginalized or silenced and any bit helps. Below I’ve included my spiel on my Patreon account but I am also including a link to my PayPal.
Raising Mothers is made possible by a rotating host of amazing writers that have been gracious to lend their words to my mission. I’ve featured stories on miscarriage, aging, co-parenting, adoption. We’ve interviewed preemie mothers, mothers that are single parents, interracial families and mothers living abroad.
With your support, I would be able to pay regularly contributing writers, illustrators and photographers, fund special projects, grow the community and maintain the day to day activities to keep Raising Mothers a thriving community. With each story, I am helping to break down the idea that “mother” is a monolithic thing. We each enter in different life phases and histories and I’m interested in the exploration of those spaces that make us different and illuminate our similarities.
