BUT. Today is Project For Awesome day, so all is well. The idea behind P4A is that for one day, YouTube won't be about boobs and cats and laughing babies. It will be about charity. Hundreds (maybe thousands!) of people are posting amazing, brilliantly done videos about a charity they support. The plan is to "fool" YouTube algorithms by liking, favoriting, commenting on and rating those videos. That way, all the most-viewed videos of the day are for great causes!
ALSO ALSO: you can watch all the P4A antics on Twitter by checking the hashtag #p4a. It's currently the TOP TRENDING TOPIC on Twitter, WHICH IS AMAZING.
Now, I'd like to introduce you to my friend Erin. She's an amazing woman who's essentially dropping everything to go on the road and travel for two years. She's visiting over 70 countries, having adventures, doing extreme sports, and most importantly giving back to the communities she visits. For P4A, she's supporting Drop In The Bucket, which is another incredible organization building wells in Africa for those who don't have access to clean drinking water.
So, I would love it if you would please GO HERE and check out her video. If you can, like, comment, rate and favorite it as well. Then do the same for other P4A videos! Share your favorites! Spread the word!
And DFTBA, guys :)
