Wit and faith meet podcasting
Patreon is a rapidly growing new crowdfunding platform popular with creative types - writers, musicians, artists, podcasters. It allows fans and supporters to commit a certain amount per month or per work completed.
Sister Vassa is an internet phenomenon, with a very popular Youtube channel featuring her explaining various aspects of Russian Orthodox Christianity.
She uses humor and charm to talk about important things, and has found an enthusiastic audience.

Here is her video appeal to support her Patreon campaign.
Definitely worth the two minutes!
From her Patreon page:
Dr. Sr. Vassa has developed quite an online mission. She not only writes original, inspiring reflections on Scripture every day, read by 2000+ email-subscribers; There are also her 60+ highly entertaining, groundbreaking, catechetical videos (translated into over 12 languages, and used by Christian educators worldwide); as well as her recently launched, popular audio podcasts. All this while holding a full-time job teaching at Austria's largest university!
For some time now, Sister has been paying two assistants to manage her website, newsletter, audio & video productions, vast correspondence and speaking schedule. But she needs your help to keep her unique enterprise going.
All this takes resources, and this is where you, the zillions, come in. Please become a patron so Sister Vassa can continue to provide you with original, thought-inspiring content.
Thank you, and God bless you!
