Thank you all for being so generous with your time, talents, and money. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Voting has been closed as of 12PM EST; stats will be compiled and votes tallied, and after the Foundation to Decrease World Suck board of directors meets to double check the validity of the votes and top charities, we will announce the 10 recipients of P4A proceeds. This won’t be in the immediate future, as this stuff takes time, but we will keep you up to date here.
The funds raised total on the website will continue to increase over the next 63 hours while more money comes in from the Indiegogo campaign, which is still open! Be sure to grab those perks before they disappear into the digital internet ether forever!
Thanks again to everyone who helped out this year. It’s entirely to your credit that this was the most successful Project for Awesome ever!
The PayPal issue has been resolved and funders can again pay through PayPal!
There are now 11 hours left to snatch up awesome perks before they are gone forever! Hank’s Face, the Men of Youtube Calendar, exclusive P4A shirts, a piece of the TFIOS tour van wrap, the John Green ebook, and more await you! All proceeds go to the Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck and will be distributed to the most voted for P4A charities (which will be announced in the near future).
Project for Awsome (P4A) 2012 - Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is an organization that takes shoe boxes filled with toys, school supplies and other necessities to deserving children around the world. For more information on how to donate or get involved go to: http://www.samaritanspurse.ca/operation-christmas-child/
This is the story of Muslims, Christians, Hindus, and Jews — along with those of many other faiths and those with no religion at all — uniting to help those in need. Together we helped transform a community in need.
Where once children studied in the dirt — they now have a school building. Where once students had no access to a sanitation — now they have a school bathroom. Where once students had no access to clean water — they now have a school tube well.
The Project for Awesome is an annual event on YouTube in which thousands of video creators make videos supporting their favorite charity.
Anybody is allowed to participate - simply make a video about a charity you support and post it on YouTube on December 17th. Then tune into the livestream and join in the commenting and donating fun. DFTBA!
