In Which I Post About the Project for Awesome.

Hello Readers!
Today is very exciting because at noon, the 2010 Project for Awesome commenced!
Now, for those of you who don't know what the heck that is, make your way to the p4a website for more info.
This event is actually amazing... I love that all of YouTube is gathering together to help DECREASE WORLDSUCK.

The Project was first founded in 2007 by the Vlogbrothers, John and Hank Green. I discovered the Vlogbrothers just recently, and I have fallen in love with their vlog. Absolutely fantastic. If you haven't already checked out their YouTube channel, you really should! I PROMISE that you won't be disappointed. They are also the founders of an amazing group called the Nerdfighters of Nerfighteria. This is of course, a perfect group for me, considering how nerdy I actually am. See my post titled Avada Kedevra for more info on my nerdiness.

Once you've made your way to the p4a website, I encourage you to donate to the causes listed in the raffles section. You purchase a raffle ticket for different prizes, and the proceeds go to organizations like Make a Wish Foundation and World Vision! They have really cool prizes up for grabs, especially if you're an avid YouTuber, you'll recognize alot of the people donating items to be raffled off.

The next step is to make your way to YouTube and look for videos that have a thumbnail that looks something like this:
This is an image I created myself on, using the thumbnail images provided on

Now, not all Project for Awesome vids will have the thumbnail, but if they don't, they'll have p4a or Project for Awesome 2010 in the title. They're pretty easy to find!
Then, next you watch, comment, like, share, and favourite as many videos as you can! The goal is to get all the top videos on the homepage of YouTube to be p4a vids! I KNOW it's possible!

Now, because I am really terrible at making and editing videos, I decided to blog about the charitable organization that I wish to endorse.

Tattered Tiaras. 
Tattered Tiaras is an organization dedicated to the care of teenage girls. This is part of their mission statement:
Encourage: “to inspire with courage, spirit or hope”  
We are working to raise awareness and begin to talk about the different issues that girls today are faced with. As we break the silence, girls will realize that they are not alone and take the steps necessary to become healthy, strong women. By telling the stories of girls through our events and programs, we believe girls will be encouraged that they are not alone.

Empower: “to promote the self-actualization or influence of” 
We desire to see every girl realize that she can change her world, and that, in her uniqueness, she has the capability and creativity to follow her dreams. We are are committed to helping girls realize their potential. Our programs strive to show girls that they have the power to make a change in their lives and their world. 

Equip: “to furnish for service or action by appropriate provisioning”  
We are putting tools in the hands of girls so that they can succeed and make their dreams a reality. Out goal is to equip girls so they can go out and change their world, and repeat the process by helping other girls in the same way. 

Tattered Tiaras has an immense amount of resources available for girls, parents, and leaders hoping to run a TT program. Just this year, TT had a missions trip to Malawi, Africa. One of my close friends went on the trip and she had the time of her life working with the TT team, and making the world a little bit better for the people in Malawi.

Tattered Tiaras is currently working towards raising funds to build a Girls' Centre. Please donate!
