I'll Eat That For A Dollar! - One of the most popular Dutch foods is the herring, and it's one feared by tourists, expats and transplants alike. It's something that I am distinctly afraid of trying, but remember that kid on the playground who would eat things for a dollar? That will be me. For one of our first video pieces, I will explore this Dutch delicacy, and eat one on camera. Donors at any level will get exclusive access to this video of me, tipping back my head and trying a Dutch herring for the first time. It's just a sign of my commitment to using this site to expose everyone to Dutch culture and to embed myself into life here. Don't miss your chance to see me eat that for $1!

The Dutch Treat Package! Because they have managed to become an almost honorary mascot on this site, we're arranging a special donation level for those who want to try one of the Netherlands best delicacies - the stroopwafel - as well as a piece of authentic Dutch Ceramics. This gift level gets you a personal postcard from me, thanking you for your patronage, and a package of authentic Dutch stroopwafels with a Delft Dutch ceramic jar that's just the right size for holding them! Taste what we've been raving about! We will also list you on the site as a sponsor, with a link to your site or a site of your choosing. (For US Backers Only)

Be an Honorary Expat For a Day! - This is perfect for anyone who's planning a trip to Amsterdam, or as a gift for someone who's on their way. I'll spend a day in the 'Dam with you. We'll do whatever you want, and go wherever you want to go! I could show you my favorite record stores, stores and street vendor stands, or we could just get some coloring books and go color. I will make myself available to be your tour guide for the day. I'll even let you ride my bike around the block! We can set up a Skype conversation in advance and plan it all out, then when the day comes, it will be off and running. We'll even produce a video episode for the website about your day as an expat. (Donor is responsible for all expenses)
