My eyes filled with tears as I read this message on Facebook from one of my dear friends and long time benefactor to TheAppWhisperer. Paula is a woman who employs the same quantity and quality of time into her business as I do within TheAppWhisperer. Like Paula, I don’t avoid tough challenges, I don’t fear breaking the rules, I never allow artists to limit their potential, more than anything, I try to increase every artists resilience in their own art and I adore doing so. Paula’s contributions have helped to keep TheAppWhisperer afloat in many dire times. Right now, it’s hard for artist’s to support others and many of our backers have had to take a step back, to make ends meet in their own lives and we are proud of them for doing so.
We are grateful for each and every donation, no matter the size. It helps us to know that what we’re doing is something you value, something you love and it helps to keep us motivated too. Just like Paula and her business, it takes hundreds of hours each month to continue to do all that we can for each and every artist and whether we receive donations or not, that won’t stop, we will always put you first but if you are able and you find yourself buoyed by this labour of love, please consider becoming a patron with a recurring monthly donation, we can help each other. Your support makes all the difference. Thank you Paula for inspiring me to do this.
This is what Paula wrote:
“Dear App Whisperer Friends, I am not a photographer but an appreciator with a back ground in art criticism, art history and film making. I write you now because I am a great appreciator of the work you all do and have even more gratitude for the work Joanne Carter does here. As the owner of a boutique footage company I know the hours of work, talent and toil that goes into the work Joanne does. I am asking you all to donate to her site. She deserves financial support for the exposure and support she gives you. Joanne asks nothing back, but I am asking you to acknowledge her hard work. So often the work women do is taken for granted or under valued. Joanne is a leader in the Mobile Art World, it is time she is recognized and paid for her work on your behalf. I donate monthly to honor and acknowledge another artist and art appreciator. will you??”
