I’d originally set the bar at donating 10% of the profits from “A Little Too Broken” to IAVA. September and October sales were pretty small, so I just donated 100%, splitting it between IAVA and Wounded Warrior Project. And I’ll probably do 100% in the future some months, but I’m definitely changing the lifetime commitment on this one to a minimum of 50% of royalties donated forever, split between these two orgs. The recipients may change if circumstances change, but the percentage won’t.
I guess I feel like half this story isn’t mine, that it belongs to the people who live it every day. And the Flying Spaghetti Monster knows that the help they’ve earned isn’t coming to them as it should, from the government, and therefore the public who elects it, that sent them out there in the first place.
