I am always in need of extra support for the crazy things that I do. I spend a tremendous amount of time trying to entertain other people in ways that don't necessarily have paychecks associated with them. While I'd still do all these things without pay, it is certainly helpful for a father of three to get some extra help so he can prioritize creativity even when times are tough. Anything you can offer is appreciated.
Here are some ways you can support what I'm doing, both with and without financial costs:
Patreon is my preferred platform for receiving support. Almost all donations go directly to me, and it provides you tools for doing regular support for almost any amount. This is a tool designed specifically for helping creators keep creating, and I am a big fan of their work.
Streamlabs is the tool I use to manage my backstage mechanics for my streams. They have a built-in donation tool where you can donate to me directly. Almost all the donations go directly to me, and it announces that donation during my stream if I am live at the time. This is a tool good for singular donations, and it will be collected together for my donation goal in my streams.
Donate on Dlive:
Dlive is an interesting platform for supporting streamers. They are not making any money off the donations to their content creators. The donations are handled through their crytocurrency, and the appreciation of that crytocurrency is how they are making their money. This means that 100% of the donations go to the streamers. While watching streams there, you also accrue some of the currency which you can then donate for free. This is an exciting environment, and you can find out more by visiting this site.
Subscribe on Mixer:
I am an active partnered streamer on Mixer, and I get revenue from my monthly channel subscribers. It's about $6 to subscribe, and I get about 50% of that amount. This gives you certain perks within the channel, and I get benefits from having more subscribers. If you are an active Mixer user, this is a good way to support if you don't want to do the previous options.
Spend Sparks on Mixer:
Mixer also has a platform currency (Sparks) that you accrue by watching streams. Whenever you use the MixPlay buttons, there are Spark values for initiating those actions. Mixer pays its content creators for spark usage in their channel. So even if you have no money to spare for support, you can always watch streams and use your sparks in Wes's channel to support him financially. If you spend your time watching ChannelOne on Mixer, you even earn 4 times the normal sparks you would in other channels. Feel free to idle in there, then donate sparks to Wes for support.
If you make any purchases through the Epic Store, then you can use the code "WesWilson" to ensure a portion of purchase goes to me. This works for anything from Fortnite Vbucks to games within the Epic Store. Please feel free to share this with whoever you know that spends money there. This isn't going to be a large payout, but it's painless and free for those who are already making purchases.
Humble often requires that you link directly to individual products in order to actually support your chosen Partner. But if you follow the link above, your purchase should be credited as being from my referral. I heartily recommend Humble Monthly, as it's a great way to get a lot of fantastic games for very little money.

So if you are planning to do any purchase via Amazon, you can help support me! A small portion of your purchase will come to me if you make any purchases on Amazon within 24 hours of clicking the above link. The link goes to a solid gaming headset that some dear friends of mine build, so buying that won't hurt... but you don't need to do that to be supportive.
