For anyone who’s not familiar, the Project for Awesome is an annual event where Youtube comes together for a couple days to talk about and donate to their favorite charities.
This is my first time making a P4A video (which should be painfully obvious–hello, webcam!), but considering I’ve spent a couple hours tuning into the livestream, I felt like I should do my part.
I’ve been volunteering at 826 Michigan for the last couple months. My own writing practice has been stop-and-go recently, and based a lot on guilting myself into working. So going to these writing workshops with young, hyper, hilarious children has been an awesome way to get back to the “fun” side of creative writing.
Perhaps most importantly: donate if you’re able! There are some awesome nerdfighter perks available on the Indiegogo. :)
