tl;dr- Please vote for my video project and help an awesome HIV/AIDS charity get some money! Links in the comments!
This weekend is the Project For Awesome, an annual event in which people give their time and money to worthy non-profit organizations. People create YouTube videos promoting charities they support while the P4A organizers raise money. At the end of the event, ballots are tallied up and the charities with the most votes receive a portion of the money. Think of it like a charity telethon for YouTube.
My friend Mel and I, with a tremendous amount of help behind the camera from +Fard Muhammad
made a video promoting Grassroot Soccer. They're a non-profit organization that uses
football as a way to engage and educate young people in Sub-Saharan Africa about HIV/AIDS and help slow the spread of the disease. We're hoping to get enough visibility and votes to get GRS a portion of the funds. And I need your help to do it.
I need two things from you guys: VOTE for Grassroot Soccer at the P4A website, and SHARE this video with others. If you want to go a step further, DONATE to the Project For Awesome. I'll put relevant links in the comments.
The event runs until Sunday afternoon. Please consider lending us your support.
