About

Brian Joseph Johns
At 51, much of that nice hair is gone,
permanently replaced by silly string.

I don't ask for any money for what I do here and never really have.

This is the culmination of several steps onto the web that I started in 2012 with http://poetryandfiction.blogspot.ca.

That later expanded into http://thebutterflydragon.blogspot.ca and http://talesofthesanctum.blogspot.ca.

Shortly thereafter I consolidated all of my content once again and started Shhhh! Digital Media as a content brand. A place where I could host my content and just about everything that turns my crank.

Supporting My Efforts


I don't and never have accepted charitable donations myself or proceeds for my written or artistic works.

Ever. 

In other words I don't use the names of charities as a means to lure money out of people for myself at all.

I am not criticizing other content producers out there who rely on ad revenue proceeds or donations to survive in order to pay their bills and to keep bringing us great new content. That's a different story and there's certainly no harm or guilt in honestly making money doing what inspires you and equally as important when it inspires other people.

I've found that the best way I can contribute is by writing and creating meaningful content that reflects views that I myself hold with regard to the current challenges faced by the world while directing attention to the Charities and Foundations that have a chance of overcoming those challenges either now or in generations to come.

If you want to help my efforts here to make the world a better place, then consider making a charitable donation to any of the following charities:

My personal views and opinions do not represent the views and opinions of any of these charities, nor by their inclusion here do they necessarily coincide with any views held within this web site.

These sites are presented in a life and well being prioritizing order. None are the lesser, though some are of more immediate importance.


Sick Kids Foundation
Help research that provides cures and support treatment for sick children.


The Cancer Research Institute
The Princess Margaret Foundation
Cancer Research organizations that combine the expertise of many different research firms and Universities to find innovative treatments and cures for Cancer.


United Nations Fund
United Way Worldwide
Two organizations whose contribution of expertise, human and financial resources and volunteer efforts provide humanitarian solutions to real world problems the entire world over. These charities operate world wide.


The Reeve Foundation provides programs for research, uniting Scientists and Specialists from many different fields to find treatments for spinal cord injury translating them into therapies and support programs.


For over 60 years, Heart & Stroke has been dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Our work has saved thousands of lives and improved the lives of millions of others.


The ALS Society Of BC
ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) is a progressive neuromuscular disease in which nerve cells die and leave voluntary muscles paralyzed. The ALS society provides a variety of programs to combat this disease and help those with it to survive.


Muscular Dystrophy Canada
Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s mission is to enhance the lives of those affected by neuromuscular disorders by continually working to provide ongoing support and resources while relentlessly searching for a cure through well-funded research.


Humane Society International
The Humane Society protects the health, lives and rights of animals the world over, ensuring that they too have a voice in this world. We are interdependent upon the complex web of life this entire planet over for our mutual survival. This is a world wide charity.


The Global Foodbanking Network
Ensuring that people the world over have enough food day to day in order to survive and lead healthy lives. This is a world wide charity.


The Edgar Allan Poe Museum
Because Barris told me to put it here. If I didn't, he said he'd walk. Geez. Stardom really gets to some people's heads. Maybe I could kill him and bury his heart beneath the floor boards! Or I could encase him in behind a brick and mortar wall, for shaming my family name of Amantillado! In all truth, there's a good chance that thanks to the works of Edgar Allan Poe, Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Jonathan Swift, Mary Wollenstein Shelley, Robert Louis Stevenson, Herbert George Wells, Jules Verne, Dr. Seuss, Stephen King, Clive Barker and Pierre Burton (for The Secret World Of Og and his ground breaking interview of Bruce Lee) that all of us are literate. Literacy is important. Really it is. Literally. It allows us to approach our employer at the end of the week (with a big club) and ask: where my money?! Math important too.


Wikipedia
The model for what may become the Encyclopedia Galactica, a complete reference and record of history, events and knowledge of humanity and its journey beyond. It is the encyclopedia of all that we know, what we surmise that we've known and will learn in the future. Yes, Wikipedia is a charitable organization of great importance. If you enjoy what I am doing here then please take the time to donate to Wikipedia. Surprisingly only 1% of Wikipedia's users donate yet the site serves pages to millions every day.


Humble Bundle
A video gaming storefront benefiting a vast variety of different Charities in the United States and United Kingdom (hopefully soon to be expanded to include other areas of the world?). By software their software bundles and choose which Charity your money benefits and how much of your money benefits that Charity
