Why this membership section?


I always desired to offer ad-free access to my videos, but needed some way to cover the cost of access. Many YouTubers use services like Patreon to accomplish that; I just find their fees too high. And too much of the support doesn’t arrive where it should.
So, I set up my own streaming cloud with PayPal payments. That also costs money, yet without the overhead. For a small amount, you now have ad-free access to all my new videos and some other extras. And don’t worry, you can still see the same videos on YouTube for free. Why Join?
Your support is always appreciated! Van Williams & Joey
