Help Support Kinhost.org
This website has been a side project of The Crisses since 1996.
In 2017, we became homeless. As of May 2019, we are no longer couch-hopping (we're sleeping in our car when we don't have dog-sitting appointments). With our 50th birthday looming and knowing our family genetics don't make a long life promising, we decided in 2017 that we would embrace our mission to shorten treatment times for people with DID & OSDD by working harder on our suite of internal community support materials.
In 2017 we relaunched our podcast, launched a Patreon campaign to allow for ongoing community support, and hoped that the community would agree to foster building this immense and valuable resource into something that would be a legacy. It's 2019, and it has not yet materialized. For certain we're getting some support, but not enough to get back into housing and with us now sleeping in our car, dog-sitting, or working from libraries and internet cafes it's harder than ever to produce podcast episodes. We'll do our best.
All support matters. A testimonial, a one-time "tip", volunteer article writers, or ongoing Patreon supporters, it's all making a difference. Please help support full-time content production for Kinhost.org, the Many Minds on the Issue podcast, CerberusPlural.com, completing the books and materials for The Crissing Link series and the United Front self-help book series for plurals. There's years of full-time content production to be put into physical reality or at least electrons on a screen that would create a one-stop resource for persons who need help with internal community issues.
All support helps. Here are some ways you can help support our mission:
Cash Support $3+
Our cash-per-month needs are about $5000/month because we have to pay income taxes, venues take a cut, etc. and housing is not cheap (a modest 1 bedroom in my area is $1000/month — we were evicted from a $1550/month 3 bedroom home). Our GOAL is $3000/month via Patreon and other donations, the remainder of our needs through coaching or services and book/product sales. It's not outlandish to think it's possible — 1,000 supporters at $3, or less people at varying higher amounts.
- Become an ongoing supporter of Kinhost.org and The Crisses on Patreon.
- If you find this site, the podcast, the United Front Boot Camp, etc. helpful, then send us a tip.
- FOLLOW The Crisses on Patreon.com and you'll get our public updates, notification when new podcasts are published, and so on.
- Volunteer. Even 1 hour of your time can be a valuable asset for Kinhost.org and the Many Minds on the Issue podcast. We have machine transcripts of podcast episodes that need correcting. We can give you access to a transcript for an episode for you to fix or highlight words you're not sure of, and we can post full episode transcripts on the website just like this one New. That's so helpful for folk who can't listen for a variety of reasons, and it helps the search engines find the website too. If you're able to volunteer 1 or more hours to help out, please Contact us! (Other possible volunteer tasks include tagging pages on the site to help build a taxonomy/index, helping to cross-link posts, etc.)
- Contribute. Send us new original articles, links to interesting articles & research, book reviews, movie reviews, and additional information that can be posted on established pages, etc. This used to be an open-edit website, but there was too much spam. We can give people access to the public areas and your own section for your system on the back-end if you become a regular and trusted contributor.
- If you don't want to contribute or don't know what to do or say at Kinhost.org, consider CerberusPlural.com — the plural news media watchdog. We need article reviewers and people to screen the news for plural content updates.
- Comment on posts, pages, podcasts throughout the website. Comments drive traffic. Traffic may mean people with money who can donate cash. So even just helping with SEO, comments, traffic helps! We're the only one who can see your email, and you can use a fake email and any name you'd like! You won't be emailed by the website software.
- Send us a testimonial, idea for an article, question for the podcast, comments or corrections, or just fanmail telling us how helpful the site is. Motivation, praise, inspiration ? it's all important! Contact us!
- If you need to add personalized coaching to your list of self-help and self-healing services, then please consider hiring The Crisses as your life coach. We offer sliding-scale pricing for our peers and folk on assistance programs.
- Purchase our books! This is a great way to contribute and get something in return. We have a Books link on this website to help you out. This includes the multiple-topic books in The Crissing Link series, planners that we've developed as a life coach and designer, and our self-help book on personal energy management. There's some Amazon affiliate links to other books for multiples there, we get a tiny kickback and it doesn't cost you anything extra to order them ? so if you've been thinking about buying them anyway, it benefits us if you follow our link to the book.
- Buy SHWAG. Check out our TeePublic shop. You can be decked out loud and proud!
- If you're considering creating online courses, or you need a book proposal to send to traditional publishers, we have Microsoft Word and Scrivener templates to help you out at Fiverr.com. We also have some other services that we offer there.
- Take one of our classes on Udemy.com. If you use our coupon, we get a bigger cut. This is the lowest price you can get out there. We have a Raising Chickens in your Backyard course and our Improve Your English Vocabulary with Over 140 Tricky Words featuring tricks for how to tell words that sound alike apart.
