Did you know that by joining the Patreon, you’ve made it possible for me to keep running the Freelance Jungle group? It’s true!

I got seriously ill in 2018 and couldn’t keep up the pace of freelancing, let alone run the Freelance Jungle. I sat in my living room with my best mate and my partner and released a video to Facebook explaining my situation and asking people to help me keep the Jungle running by joining the Patreon.

Honestly, I was expecting no one would step up – and at least I could close my beloved (but unwieldy) side project without guilt.

But 200 people stepped up and kept it alive. And I’ve been grateful for that support – and others who have taken up the mantle – ever since.

As a Freelance Jungle Patreon supporter (or Pinkies as you’re affectionately known), you receive:

Access to the Jungle Lounge

This special group is for Pinkies only! It’s the group where you can share jobs, grants, creative awards and other opportunities.

It’s also your place to chat in a smaller group environment with your fellow Patreon supporters about anything. Ask questions, chat about your day, and take a load off in an intimate online environment.

NOTE: I need the email address you want added to that group if it is not the same as the one you have supplied on Patreon.
