September month-end Patreon update

It’s with a great deal of sadness that we have to report that our friend and co-worker Dave Caolo won’t be with us on a regular basis anymore. On the plus side, Dave is working full time at the International Fund for Animal Welfare and will be writing the occasional piece for AWT.

As a result of Dave departing Apple World Today, we’re readjusting our Patreon goals and I’m happy to say that we’re now very close to our goal of keeping the site going for the foreseeable future. With the support of just over 300 patrons, the site is gaining $1,693.49 each month that is used to keep us solvent. If that number gets to $2,000, we'll be able to keep Apple World Today going indefinitely; at $2,250 we'll add a weekly podcast; and at $2,500 we'll add curated forums. For $4,000 a month, we'll get rid of ads forever! The goals are more attainable than ever.
