Become a Friend of Just Looking

Join the group of people supporting the work of Just Looking. These are the cheerleaders that hooray every time a newsletter goes out or an event is created.

They gift a monthly or annual membership fee which helps cover some of the cost of doing this work, but more than that it motivates me, and gives me a heck of a reason to stay focused and accountable.

In turn, I commit to pay forwards this generosity by growing the project and its positive impact, and keeping it all freely accessible.

Champion a movement

Just Looking is not alone, but part of a modern mindfulness movement. There are many other creative projects encouraging us to slow down and notice more. Sometimes in quite challenging contexts.

This is why 50% of the Friends of Just Looking membership fees are being set aside to support others - especially charities, social enterprises, and artists. Read about the projects we are supporting.

The main reason to join

When you join, you become part of a chain of generosity. You will be helping me to make things, and I'll pay your gift forward by ensuring those things are freely accessible to anyone, aka unlocking the commons.

“Fans support the person and the work. But it’s not a transaction, a fee for service. It’s a contribution that benefits everyone. Free-riders aren’t just welcome; free-riding is the point.” - Tim Carmody

The beauty of this is in the ripple effects. Research shows that when someone receives or even witnesses an act of generosity, they become more likely to be generous too, paying the goodness forward to others, like this boy.

Are there any other membership perks?

Yes! When you join as a Friend, you will also get these extras:

  • Access to my expanded Book Recommendations page
  • Invite to an annual members-only "Team Meeting"
  • Opportunity to suggests projects to support via the Foundation

This is a more intimate group so I get to know many of the members over time, which I really value. I also want to find light-touch, organic ways for members to get to know each other too. Working on it.

Questions you may have:

Is it easy to unsubscribe?
Yes, just send me an email. No problem at all.

Are my payment details safe?
Absolutely. Payments are handled securely through Stripe. I don’t see any of your details, and nor does anyone else.

How can you become a Friend?
Find the membership tab and choose your level of support. I am so grateful for your interest. And of course, you're welcome to choose the free option too.

If you have any other questions, please get in touch.
