Taking a page from the Creative Commons concept of Share Alike, and based on 2018 US federal poverty guidelines, any and every patron dollar on Patreon pledged above $1,012 per month I will consider to be greater than a basic income and will pledge away to other Creators on Patreon also creating content in support of their own basic incomes by making the same pledge to limit their own final goals to $1,012/mo (plus ~$360/mo per kid for Creator parents) and pledging to give the rest to others making the same pledge. My goal is to help create a community of content creators all working toward their own basic incomes with the same shared goal of helping achieve basic incomes for others.
Note: To take the BIG Pledge, you need not define basic income in the exact same way I do. You are free to select an amount of basic income that you consider sufficient to cover your own basic needs.
