Create a ‘Why I heart Grist’ video for Project for Awesome
Do you love Grist? How about making videos? And it’s probably safe to assume you’re OK with awesome-ness, right?
Yeah? Well, you’re in luck. Here’s your chance to tell the world why you think Grist is so “intelligent,” “relevant,” and “downright funny” (as it’s been said before). In partnership with YouTube, Hank and John Green — perhaps better known as the VlogBrothers — are offering to donate $1,000 to one extra-awesome charity in this year’s Project for Awesome (P4A).
To make sure Grist is that winning (and worthy) charity, just whip up a short YouTube video showcasing your undying love for Grist and all the reasons you think Grist is awesome. Remember: Grist = Awesome.
What exactly is Project for Awesome and why is it happening? We think ProjectforAwesome.com says it best:
Sometimes the world just sucks too much. This year is certainly no exception. But it’s the time of the year when we have to think about others instead of ourselves. Which is why the YouTube community is excited, this year, to band together to promote our favorite charities, and to encourage giving among young and old alike.
Watch Hank Green (btw, he’s the editor of ecogeek.org) dish on P4A below:
