Project for Awesome: You can move ~$1K to a top charity by making a short video—no talent required!

Pro­ject for Awe­some (a pro­ject of John and Hank Green) is run­ning from De­cem­ber 15th-17th, and a bunch of money will go to char­ity. We can in­fluence some of the dona­tions by mak­ing videos for our cho­sen char­i­ties, up­load­ing them from noon EST on De­cem­ber the 15th, and then hav­ing as many peo­ple vote for the videos as pos­si­ble un­til noon EST De­cem­ber the 17th. Last year, the Against Malaria Foun­da­tion and the Good Food In­sti­tute won $25,000 thanks to the EA com­mu­nity.

Please join us! This year the com­mu­nity is plan­ning to get $25K donated to:

We are hop­ing to get 20 or more videos for each char­ity—so a video tak­ing you 30 min­utes of effort could be worth around $1K for the char­ity! So this is GREAT value for your time, and a fun ac­tivity, es­pe­cially with friends.

No tal­ent re­quired! 30 sec­ond short am­a­teur­ish videos count just as much as long fancy videos, you don’t need to show your face if you don’t want, and the or­ganis­ing team is col­lat­ing re­sources, script ideas, tips.

Join our face­book group for more in­for­ma­tion and to help co­or­di­nate, or click “go­ing” on the event. Or you can find re­sources and a co­or­di­na­tion spread­sheet here.
