Ways to support STFUandFish!

No Comments

I’m getting asked often enough now, it warrants a post. There’s several ways you can support STFUandFish. Both are located on the homepage in the right hand column.

“Buy me a coffee” is a single simple donation system via PayPal.
“LiberaPay” is a single or continuing donation system along the lines of Patreon, but without all the fluff.

Funds generated through these methods cover simple things like gas and (you guessed it) coffee. Any money generated this way goes to cover the ancillaries of creating the episodes and running the website.

Thanks for all your support!
