So like, shameless reach out: I'm still searching for a job, living off my savings since end of August, have no yes/no for regular financing (BaFöG) for university, and next month I'll have to add 91€ to my expenses due to mandatory health insurance.
Anything helps, even $1 / month, and in the long-term this helps to not have to fallback to too much work on the side (so I can focus on university + free software work exclusively).
And if you want to support your local instance get in touch with your admin to see what they need!
Remember, every bit counts, so supporting with only $1/month does help us!

So you solidarity ppl. What is this? How many of you know how crucial it is having secure regular income.
What would you wish other do if you just get cut off your income? Silence or solidarity?
Well that happend with a anarchist/left newsplattform just view days ago.
They lost their regular income on patreon because the CEO and altright wanted so.
What would you do if it would happen to you?
Being silent our asking for solidarity?
The question I have to you is if the community of #mastodon supports those practices of patreon or not?
Being silent is supporting it
Sayn no but not let actions follow is supporting it
If patreon uses it's power to cut of the support of ppl fighting for freedom and solidarity, we should consider to say FUCK patreon
Patreon Caves to Tim Pool and the Alt-Right, Bans 'Its Going Down' Website
– 'Despite the picture painted by Conte, Patreon has deactivated our account due to pressure from the Alt-Right – full stop. As we will show, Patreon has acted with a complete lack of professionalism; it not only broke under pressure from the Alt-Right but moreover used information handed to them from a group which openly embraces white supremacy and fascism, and lastly, it has sent a message to everyone that uses and donates on Patreon, that if you piss off the Alt-Right, you might be next...'
