Hundreds of videos have been uploaded, nearly 300,000 comments have already been posted, and once again Nerdfighteria is changing the landscape of YouTube to raise awareness and money for dozens of worthy charities.
It's a simple formula: Project for Awesome raises hundreds of thousands of dollars through its amazing Indiegogo campaign. A bunch of super cool people make videos that highlight charities of their choosing. YouTube viewers watch the videos, spam them with comments, and vote for their favorites via the official Project for Awesome website. The charities with the most votes receive a portion of the funds raised through the Indiegogo campaign.
Last year, the HPA received enough votes to win $16,000. This year can be even better, but they need your help. You want to maximize your P4A awesomeness. The Harry Potter Alliance wants your votes.
As of now, there are eleven Project for Awesome videos that feature the Harry Potter Alliance. That's eleven opportunities for you to vote for us! We can totally beat last year's total if everybody votes for the HPA eleven times!
Goodness gracious! We almost forgot to mention the most exciting thing: If you really want to make your votes count, you should donate to the Project for Awesome Indiegogo campaign! John and Hank have put together some incredible rewards that you can receive in exchange for your generous donation. Some prizes have already sold out, so don't miss out on your opportunity to snag something amazing!
Thank you for all of your support in this campaign!
