  • Good morning Hank, it's Thursday.

  • It's my last video of Pizzamas and I'm wearing a suit which can only mean one thing: that it's time for the Bank of Nerdfighteria Semi-Annual Report.

  • The last semi-annual report was a year and a half ago, but it's 2018, words don't mean anything. Let's talk about money.

  • Right, so Nerdfighteria has a charity called The Foundation To Decrease Worldsuck which

  • despite its silly name, is a real charity devoted to trying to decrease the overall level of suck in the world.

  • And the foundation raises money all year long in anticipation of our big annual charity event, The Project for Awesome.

  • This year the foundation has about $50,000 in the bank going into the p4a.

  • Some of this came from Amazon Smile, some from people's workplace giving programs,

  • a bunch came from Tab for a Cause which lets you raise money for charity while you browse the web.

  • And also half of the revenue from this YouTube channel goes to the foundation so thank you for watching ads

  • and/or subscribing to whatever YouTube Red is currently called.

  • Plus this year every Pizzamas purchase supports the foundation

  • Which reminds me that all this Pizzamas magic will only be available for one more day at dftba.com.

  • So get it while it's hot. And by hot I mean available.

  • But on that front you may notice in the coming months that more of our work inside of Nerdfighteria is transitioning towards supporting charity.

  • Like our Pizzamas royalties are going to The Foundation, the proceeds from Life's Library, the book club Rosianna and I are starting, go to Partners in Health.

  • This is happening for two reasons. First because Hank and I do not need money. We both have jobs that pay well.

  • My job being having written a book seven years ago that became quite popular and Hank's job being having 40 jobs.

  • And secondly we feel like it makes sense for the revenue generated by Nerdfighteria to be spent in ways that are in keeping with the values of Nerdfighteria.

  • Honestly, I've always felt kind of guilty getting paid for Pizza John t-shirts. I think there are better ways to spend that money and so we're gonna spend it better.

  • But, and this is the last thing I'll say about it, I want to emphasize that it is far more generous for a person with $10 to donate $1 to a cause they care about

  • than for a person with a million dollars to donate a hundred thousand dollars to a cause they care about.

  • It's really easy for rich people to seem altruistic and we're making this transition because we can afford to. Okay back to the video.

  • So the $50,000 we currently have in the bank will be a great start to the 12th annual Project for Awesome which will begin this year at 12:00 PM ET on December 7th.

  • During the first half of the Project for Awesome we'll be raising money for pre-selected charities: Save the Children and Partners in Health.

  • Two highly effective organizations that we've been working with for over a decade.

  • And then during the second half we'll be raising money for charities chosen by Nerdfighteria.

  • Since 2012 the Project for Awesome has raised over seven and a half million dollars for charities supporting causes from cancer research to clean water initiatives.

  • And I'm really excited for this year. Speaking of which, if you can think of any perks that might tempt your donation dollars let me know in comments.

  • This year Hank and I will match all donations to the first half of the Project for Awesome up to $150,000

  • and every year there are a few people who are able to add to that matching fund, which is amazing.

  • If you somehow are able to donate $1,000 or more to this year's Project for Awesome please email us at

  • HankandJohn@gmail.com with Matching in the subject line.

  • Your donations are tax-deductible and you will be profusely thanked.

  • But of course we know that most people aren't in a position to do that and regardless of whether you can donate

  • you can make a Project for Awesome video in support of a charity you care about.

  • People can then vote for your video and the charity might receive a grant from the foundation. So get started thinking about your p4a videos. It's only 29 days away.

  • Last thing I should mention that the Life's Library book club is closing enrollment tomorrow because we are running out of spots.

  • Links as always in the doobly-doo below.

  • Hank, thank you for a fun Pizzamas. I probably won't get to say this again until next Pizzamas. So I'm going to enjoy saying it now:

  • I will see you tomorrow.

Good morning Hank, it's Thursday.
