This was extremely important for me to go into detail. As you noticed there is a donation button on the right side of my website. That is MY personal paypal for this website and yes the money goes into my bank account. I would never lie to you guys. I tried finding a way to get people to donate to other specific musicians’ websites or fundraisers but I couldn’t find a way to do that because I suck at technology and I’m not even sure if it’s possible to have people donate directly to others via my website. So I am using my paypal account to give the money, myself, to other musicians. I’ll buy their albums/merch. Things like that. I want to be able to support the people who are struggling.
For the people who don’t know me and probably find it sketchy that I am using my personal paypal….I’m not gonna lie. I may use some of the money for myself. If I’m getting money into my bank account of course I’ll use some of it. But for the most part I want to help other musicians. I’m not gonna be one of those people that claims every penny is going to a charitable donation because that would be bullshit and I don’t bullshit my loyal supporters. I will, though, make sure most of that money goes towards helping musicians because they are the reason I even started this website. Think of it this way….this is my website that I created for myself. Why would I have any reason to lie about where donation money goes? I could easily just have said donate to me. Clickbait has nothing to do with it. People aren’t going to just donate because they see the money goes to a charitable cause. People donate because they trust me. So, there’s no reason I would come up with a diabolical plan to lie about where the money goes when people would have donated to me anyway if I said it was just for me.
I want to thank everyone for supporting me on this journey. I have recently registered this website as a business so I have high hopes for what we can do. I couldn’t do this without any of you guys!
