  • Good morning Hank! It's Tuesday.

  • And I'm wearing a suit, which must mean it's time to talk about money.

  • Since 2014, all the ad revenue from this YouTube channel has been evenly split between our charity,

  • the Foundation to decrease Worldsuck.

  • And a fund that sponsors online educational content.

  • And through that fund we've been able to give grants to dozens of projects over the years.

  • I'll link to a few of the recent ones below.

  • But I mention this because submissions are now open for the next round of grants,

  • So if you know of a great EDU creator who needs a few thousand dollars to become an even greater EDU creator

  • Or if you are such a person

  • There is a link to apply in the doobly-doo below

  • Quick pause to note that Hank and I don't do this because we're like oh so noble or whatever

  • We do it because we can afford to - we have other jobs that pay well

  • like for instance did you know that my new book 'Turtles All the Way Down' is available in bookstores everywhere

  • And the New York Times just named it one of their favorite books of the year? Back to charity!

  • Right, so the other half of Vlogbrothers revenue goes to the Foundation to decrease Worldsuck

  • Which, despite its silly name, is a real charity

  • It is federally sanctioned, your donations are tax-deductible, all that stuff

  • And despite the so-called ad-pocalypse on YouTube

  • and broader challenges faced by the advertising-funded parts of the Internet

  • Vlogbrothers has had a really good year.

  • the foundation has about 125,000 dollars in the bank right now - 15,000 more than we did at this time last year

  • Largely thanks to the money we made helping distribute the excellent documentary KEDI

  • but soon we will have nothing in the bank because it will all be given away after the 11th annual Project for Awesome

  • A 48-hour live streamed charity extravaganza.

  • That begins at noon Eastern Time on December 15th

  • During the first half of the Project for Awesome, we raise money for pre-selected charities

  • This year they are Save the Children, which we've worked with extensively over the last decade,

  • and also Last Mile Health, an amazing nonprofit that trains and pays community health workers in Liberia

  • and during that part of the p4a every dollar you donate will count as much more than $1

  • Because Hank and I will match every donation up to $250,000

  • and donors to both charities will also match your donations, so your money will go a long way.

  • And then during the second half of the project for awesome we raise money for charities chosen by Nerdfighteria,

  • and this is where you can help raise money and awareness for your favorite charities.

  • Make a video about a charity you think should receive a grant,

  • upload it at noon Eastern Time on December 15th, and then people can vote for your charity at

  • Now you might be thinking 'I don't have many subscribers, no point in me making a video', but every year, charities get grants

  • thanks to brilliant videos made by creators with a few dozen or even zero subscribers.

  • Making a p4a video is also an excellent way to support a charity,

  • even if you can't afford to donate to it. As for how to make a good p4a video

  • I highly recommend Hank's guide which you can find in the doobly-doo below.

  • In the past, grants have gone to organizations from The Trevor Project to the Against Malaria Foundation

  • It's all up to you: your videos and your votes. Over the past 5 years, the Project for Awesome

  • has raised more than 5.8 million dollars for charities, and we're hoping to make this the best year yet

  • no pressure or anything... a little bit of pressure. It occurs to me that "no pressure or anything

  • - a little bit of pressure" is kind of my approach to everything. Okay four last things. One:

  • I will be in comments to answer any questions you have. Two: let us know who you'd like to see as Project for Awesome

  • co-hosts. Let us know if you have any perk ideas that would tempt your dollars toward charity, and lastly: if by some chance you want

  • to donate a lot of money to the Project for Awesome, like, say,

  • $1000 or more and you want to join the matching donation fund, email me with the subject line "matching" at

  • Thank You Hank, DFTBA, I'm going to take off this suit. I will see you on Friday

Good morning Hank! It's Tuesday.
