Multiamory is proud to announce a special COVID-19 relief initiative to help their listeners and patrons weather the emotional and financial storms of the current pandemic.
Since everyone is being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Multiamory team (Jase Lindgren, Emily Matlack, and Dedeker Winston) are offering listeners and patrons several ways to cope during this crisis.
Listeners who are feeling the sting of isolation—loneliness, anxiety, and depression—are invited to a twice-weekly all-day video hangout. Official times are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00am – 6:00pm Pacific time (1:00pm – 9:00pm Eastern time). These hangouts are free and open to everyone. The Multiamory podcast hosts will be dropping in and out through the day. For more information and to join the hangout, visit the Multiamory Hangout page.
While everyone is affected emotionally by this crisis, some are affected financially more than others. Listeners seeking ways to help can donate via a temporary Patreon tier so that Multiamory can continue to offer free online hangouts, give refunds to patrons in need, and create and distribute the podcast.
For patrons who can’t afford their subscription during this crisis, the Multiamory team is offering a refund of their monthly pledge. Patreon (the system through which pledges are processed) does not have an option for waiving a monthly pledge, but they do allow Multiamory to refund a pledge that’s already been paid.
The Multiamory team stated, “This community has been amazing at supporting each other, and we are so honored to be surrounded by such a wonderful and caring group of people. We even have a few donors who are contributing even more than this by customizing their pledge to increase the amount. We are humbled and inspired by your generosity and your belief in us.”
