5 Ways to Support TruePrepper

This post has been updated from our original Support TruePrepper post that was first published in 2017. Rusty weighs in with the 2023 updates in this TruePrepper ‘state of the union’.

This post isn’t meant to be begging for help or anything- we’re in pretty good shape. But we have had a few readers ask how they could contribute or help out. If you’re reading this post, I hope you’re a fan of what we’re doing here at TruePrepper. We are all about reaching as many people as possible and informing people that there are inherent risks in your life that you shouldn’t just blatantly ignore.

When you support us you help us get the word out by sharing, helping us pay server fees, and expanding our reach. Here are 5 easy and fast ways you can help us out.

Annual Update

For 2023 we have some big goals and our large focus will be on long-term food storage. We’re in the kitchen doing tons of reviews, and have our giveaway going to help kickstart one lucky reader’s prepper pantry.

You’ll probably see more of me (Rusty) in videos- over the holidays I was getting together a nice little studio. We’ve seen a few of our prepper YouTube (and other media) friends dive head-first into doomsday prophesizing, which is always a bad path to take the preparedness conversation. I’ll be over on the official TruePrepper channel if you want some prepping advice without the fearmongering BS, and we’ll have fun with it.

Overall, TruePrepper has been very successful from where it started 7 years ago and we hope to build on that success in a big way for 2023. The biggest thing you can do for us as our loyal reader is to make sure that you are prepared for anything. But below, we’ll go through a few other completely free things that help us all out.


Get a Sticker

If you are a subscriber, just shoot us a note through our contact form or Facebook with a good shipping address, and we’ll get a few vinyl TruePrepper stickers in the mail for you! How does this support us? Well, it gets our name out there a little bit. Plus we already have the stickers and just need to get them out in good hands. Slap it on your survival kit, water bottle, or whatever else you feel deserves an upgrade in the looks department.

If you aren’t a subscriber yet, don’t worry- it’s free too. Just sign up here: Subscribe and then approve the subscription in your email. We hate spam just as much as you do so we won’t send you ads and crap like that, but you can bail anytime you want either way. Here is what our vinyl sticker looks like:

TruePrepper
Slap em wherever you want!

You can also get stickers by winning our giveaways, but we have plenty of entries so you need to be pretty lucky to get one that way.


Sharing is Caring

If you see a post that we cook up and you like it or think it is pretty relevant, feel free to share it! Whether you use social media, email, or just word of mouth- we appreciate great discussions on the topics we venture into. If you follow us on social media it will make it easier for you to share our posts.

           


Pay Our Server Fees

We’re not asking you to cut a check or contribute to PayPal or anything that actually costs you money. At TruePrepper, we run a few ads (we’re actively scaling these down this year) and we have some affiliate links. No pops ups or spam ever. Before I started up a website I had no idea what an ‘affiliate’ was or an ‘affiliate link.’ It’s pretty simple though; it’s a referral commission that doesn’t cost the customer anything. So when you buy stuff after you click on some links on our page, we get a pretty small cut. We can’t ask you to bookmark and use these to shop, but if you decided to do it on your own it would help us pay our bills and reach more people. Here is the “Amazon Affiliate” link:

One cool thing Amazon does is support charities. All you have to do is go to a different site: Amazon Smile. Just like the affiliate links, it doesn’t cost you anything and the charity gets a small donation. The cool thing about the links below is that the charity gets a donation AND so does TruePrepper. All without costing you anything! Here is the Amazon Smile link:

You pick out the charity after going to the link above. A few of our favorite charities include:

  • Wounded Warrior Project
  • Triangle Down Syndrome Network
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of America
  • American Cancer Society
  • Operation Homefront, Inc

Pick a charity that matters to you, and you can support them every time you make a purchase through Amazon Smile.

You can learn all about our affiliate status and relationships on our affiliate disclosure page. We aren’t partial to Amazon and have several relationships from small vendors all the way up to Wal-Mart.


Vote for Us

There are a few voting websites out there, and we are a pretty competitive group. By helping us climb the leaderboards on these sites, you are increasing our exposure. Voting is free and just takes a second. Here is the one that we are still showing up on: Survival Top 50.


Demand Something

We absolutely love it when we get content requests. It makes us do some research, rack our brains, talk within our group on how we would handle it or have handled a situation, and get a great post up.

Let us know what you want to see or how you think we could be doing things better. A friend with feedback is always great to have.


The Final Word

We are already feeling the love, so this post was not meant as a guilt trip or anything like that. We just wanted to lay out the easiest ways that you guys can help us keep going and growing. By the way, here were our top articles of 2022:

Thanks for reading and continuing to stop by when you get the chance!

Keep exploring, stay prepared, and be safe.
