One of the coolest things about webcomics, for readers, is that they’re only a click away and are free on the Internet. For creators, however, it means that they probably are not going to make a cent for their effort, and most will lose money, just for the sake of their art. So, if you have clicked on this page, you probably have some sort of desire to help Wimpy Girl. Yay! Wimpy Girl thanks you, Capt'n Clean thanks you, and even Fiona and Felipe Fitbit are vibrating their gratitude!
And you know what? It's not all about money. There are lots of ways to keep Wimpy Girl moving and grooving on the web. Here are a few:
1. Buy items from the store

2. Subscribe to the Wimpy Girl Patreon account
Because it’s an ongoing support system for an ongoing creation, Patreon is a perfect match for Wimpy Girl. Even if it’s only a dollar a month, throwing some money our way can really help pay our online expenses.
