Be one of the first 50 pledgers to get a chance to win a Pixar walking teapot!

I need at least $550/month to be able to work on Scratchapixel full-time for at least a year. That means I need at least 50 of you to pledge $10+ a month for a year. That's a significant commitment and not much when you consider Scratchapixel helps over 400,000 people a year. There must be a way by which this is achievable.

In exchange, I want to ensure I provide you with something valuable. Not everybody can give that much, by making a pledge to Scratchapixel, you contribute not only to supporting me but also to helping others through that donation.

How will this impact things for you? Instead of just being able to work on Scratchapixel in my spare time, dedicating all my time to the project means more content for you, both on the website and in the form of new videos. My initial goal is to commit to this for a year.

You can use PayPal or Crypto using the links/info provided below.

Now, one of the first 50 pledgers will be entered into a random draw, and the winner will receive this walking RenderMan teapot from my personal collection. I realize this is more of a symbolic gift for now, though it holds a lot of sentimental value for me, and some fiduciary value too. As I progress with looking for sponsors, I'll try to offer you guys something even better next time, but it's a start.

Let's not stop at 50! I'll continue to track the donations and report them here. More funds will help accelerate the development of this project. We're not short on ideas.

Ok, what will you receive in exchange for your pledge? As mentioned in my intro video:

To ensure transparency, this page will track the number of pledges and the total amount received, along with a list of those eligible for the draw (those pledging $10+ a month for a year). This commitment is based on trust (I trust you'll keep donating for a year if you don't give the full sum up front), and I'm excited to embark on this journey with your support.

I am also looking for sponsors, so if you are a company and want to support Scratchapixel, please get in touch on Discord.

Let's make it work together.

If you can't use any of these platforms, get in touch with me on Discord, and we'll find a way. Once you have made a payment, ping me on Discord so that I can keep track of it.


I will post the total number of donors starting from the 20th of March who qualify for the draw, along with their names and the total amount committed by you guys. As soon as we reach 50 premium donors, I will organize the draw (as a live event), and you will find out if you have won the teapot.

Thanks to all of you. Those with a πŸ™ are exceptionally generous donors).
