What does my contribution help to do?
Here's how we use your contribution to help pay for the show
Support Black Creators
The Colored Girl Beautiful LLC is a Black female-owned small business and we seek to provide work opportunities to Black women whenever possible. Your donation not only helps us as Black content creators, it also helps us to pay our contractors at a fair rate.
Cover Hosting Fees
We love doing the work of creating this show but it comes with costs! We pay hosting fees for things like our website and RSS feed, both are crucial to the success of the show. Part of your donation goes to covering those monthly recurring costs.
Pay Production Costs
Creating a podcast means maintaining recording equipment. We want to make the show sound as professional as possible for you. Your contribution helps to purchase and maintain our equipment so that you get nice clean audio in your ear buds.
You may be wondering...
Who is this work for?
Black women! While we center the stories of Black women exclusively, we believe that all who listen will find meaning in our content. Black women will feel especially seen and heard and will feel at home listening to the stories we tell. And we created the show to do exactly that! This space is for you, sis!
Why is this work important?
We believe that the depiction of Black women in the media deserves more depth. So we decided to create a space where we center Black women in a meaningful way. We wanted to give a more complete picture of Black womanhood while also honoring the history of the Black women who came before us. We feature Black women of all ages, backgrounds, states of mental health and personalities. We're more than the sassy best friend or the 'strong Black woman.' We prioritize valuing the whole of who Black women are, strengths and flaws and all.
How much should I give?
That's up to you! We ask for a minimum of $2 to ensure that the fees charged to process your payment are a little more than covered. Aside from that, the sky is the limit! Monthly contributions are especially helpful, because costs to produce the show are always on-going. But anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated!
