Star Trek depicts an aspirational post-scarcity society, but we live in the here and now, where we’re dealing with a pandemic and social issues that are having a disastrous impact on some of our most vulnerable neighbors and friends.
Thats why the pod is donating all Patreon funds for the month of July to organizations that help people in need, and you can contribute to our pool, without becoming a patron, at the link below.
These funds will go to the Central Texas Food Bank, in our home of Austin, and The Okra Project, which seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People wherever we can reach them. The Central Texas Food Bank has been at the front line of hunger relief with the help of Partner Agencies in 21 counties across Central Texas. Together, we provided more than 39.2 million pounds of food to families in need during the 2017-2018 fiscal year to an average of 200,000 individuals each month.
We will be sending in our donation on July 31, 2020, so we have the rest of the month to try and raise as much as we can. We all must do more for everyone to Live Long and Prosper.
