Let's work together for change.

Imagine the world if people had more knowledge of each other’s backgrounds. Could we avoid some unkindness? Even violence? 

Are you are willing to do something to reduce misunderstanding in the world?

Two-layered strategy:

I make videos to help people see into someone else's world, especially Iraqis and Americans.

I use engagement around the content to strengthen the activities of groups working for positive change, both on and offline.

Three ways you can help:

Share & follow

Subscribe, comment and re-post to help more people see bridge-building content.

Tell people why it matters to you, and what you might do next.

Join my inner circle

Patreon is a membership subscription program to help creators grow their work. If you’re able to give a few dollars per month, you can see my new content before anyone else,  guide my decisions about what to make, and a lot more. Go to my Patreon page for details.

Official Patrons - $5/m

As a member you know what's happening with my projects before anyone else on the internet. You also see my new videos a day early.

Screening Crew - $16/m

All benefits above, plus: You see new videos before they're finished, and offer feedback to improve them. Seriously. I also show you behind-the-scenes of my work in videos I make only for you.

Strategy Team - $24/m

All benefits above, plus: You have direct input in deciding what content I create, and which social change projects we support offline. We talk strategy on monthly video hangouts.

Top Patrons - $49/m

All benefits above, plus: Video chat with me one-on-one. I want to know you better, and be one of your contacts. I also send you a personalized thank-you video. Not for you, but for me. I need you to know how much I appreciate you!

(Photos are some of my favorite Iraqi foods, from simple to fancy.)

You should know:

Small funds are necessary to build something lasting. More importantly, though, I need YOU--your unique talents, energy, and your daily decision to work for change. The key to success is community. Whether it's on Patreon or not, I want to be with you for the long haul.
Thank you!
