Put a Donation in Jay’s Tip Jar

If you want to say THANKS for anything I’ve made, drop something in my proverbial Tip Jar. This will keep me going when I’m editing a video, sifting through the umpteenth PHP file at 3am, answering a question about 3D software at the same time, or when I’m doing my next live stream.

There are several ways to donate money, pick the one that works best for you. Want to support me my work without cash? I have a separate lists of Affiliate Links here 😀

Monthly Donations

You can give ongoing donations via my Patreon crowdfunding campaign. Supporting me this way means that I can turn this whole YouTube/Streaming/Websites venture into a full-time job. It encourages me to keep going, invest into further software and hardware, and it’ll allow me to continue making the world a better place. In return you’ll get exciting goodies such as:

  • Discord Access to my private server
  • your name or brand in the credits of upcoming Videos and live streams
  • early ad-free access to upcoming videos
  • personalised videos with answers to your questions
  • free merch, like mugs and copies of my books on higher tiers
  • access to digital goodies, like video assets, 3D products and scene files

Donations start from as little as $1 per month, or prepay for a whole year in advance. Give as much as you want for how long as you want – every cent is very much appreciated 🙏

One-off Donations

You can buy me a Ko-Fi to feed by caffeine habit. These are one-off donations with similar benefits. Buy as many as you like, or donate a custom amount. I have downloadable goodies in my Ko-fi shop too, like animations, icons, overlays and small game projects. Recurring donations are welcome, and every cup is greatly appreciated ☕️

PayPal Donations

I also accept one-off and ongoing donations directly via PayPal. Follow the link below and give any amount you want – all major Credit Cards are accepted, and you don’t need a PayPal account to proceed. ?

During Live Events

When I’m live on air, various events trigger the “walking zombie” animation. These include subscriber and follower alerts and most donation alerts. The latter will include your handle and the amount you’ve donated, and when I spot this in time, I will usually give you a shout out to say thank you 🙂

The following donation events will trigger the animation:
