Our work is becoming progressively less transactional in nature; increasingly, we are relying on the ongoing support of people who believe in what we’re putting into the world. If you feel supportive of our work, we’d appreciate your financial support, in any amount that’s comfortable for you: misfitstars.com/support.

Thank you so much for your support; we couldn’t do any of this without you. ❤️
