I got my first GitHub Sponsors on May 23rd, I'm excited to share what happened and how I got the sponsorship.
Make sure to follow me on GitHub with cute two-letter username https://github.com/yg
I'm a hardcore contributor for an open-source project called Open Sauced, It is a project to manage data to identify your next open source contribution.
Open Sauced is maintained by Brian Douglas he is in the Developer Relations team at GitHub. I helped him sort out the issues in Open Sauced and another project called Mutualfun, he loved the way I'm triaging the issues and making PRs for them. Boom Immediately I saw a tweet.
I always have a jerk when seeing his name on twitter 'pernamently blacklisted'.
He started sponsoring me on Gold Sponsor - $50 Tier, from that my contribution to Open Sauced tripled

I ported 3 packages to Denorg from NPM
I haven't noticed that he started sponsoring. Actually it was notified by my friend in Discord, that you have two sponsors.
Thanks for Brian and Anand for being my first two sponsors.
