After seeing the nerdfighter art in the newsletter today, I thought I’d contribute something as I’ve been trying to experiment with long exposures lately. 
Taken in the bedroom of my host family in France!

Cool stuff, yo!

Hello there, artists of nerdfighteria! After the success of the Nerdfighter Art Tier of last year’s Project for Awesome, I’m teaming up with the P4A team once again and need your help!
The P4A, as always, will be raising money to give to charities. However, some people have more time and talent to give than money (you know who you are) so we’d like to recruit you to provide creations for reward tiers in our IndieGoGo campaign. You create the artwork and it will be and sent to a fellow nerdfighter who claims the perk!
Ideally, you will be making 15+ items and you will be shipping them to Missoula, Montana to be distributed to the people who claimed the Nerdfighter Art Perk!
We’re looking for small, easily shipped items. This can include jewelry, knitwear, small plushies, small drawings and paintings, digital art prints, etc.
The pieces of art do not need to be nerdfighter-themed but it is highly encouraged! 
The estimated worth of the art should be about $25-30 because the perk will be sold for $40. That’s not a strict amount, just keep it in mind when making your proposals!
If you’re interested, you need to email us at nerdfighterart@gmail.com by October 10th with an example of what you have/will be creating and what quantity. A picture of it for us to see would be extra helpful when sorting through everyone’s submissions!
We will let you know if it’s reasonable and provide additional information around October 13th, giving you more than a month to complete your pieces.
We’re extremely excited to be working on this project again this year, we hope you’re excited too! ^-^
- Emma, Valerie, and Hank

If you’re a creative type, the Project for Awesome could use your craftiness!

"… There isn’t just one Ethiopia, the college library with no water is Ethiopia, but these future engineers who will build the cities infrastructure are also Ethiopia. These kids are Ethiopia, and so is this doctor, and so are these farmers, and so is this presidential marching band. Now, I know that when we see Africa on the news or in the movies, it’s always like war, pirates, refugees, diseases. The stories I saw in Ethiopia were far more complicated and ultimately more compelling. These remarkable young people have seen the greatest drops in poverty rates and infant mortality in their countries history, but every year in Ethiopia, tens of thousands of children still die of easily preventable diseases. If we’ve learned one thing from global health in the last twenty years, it’s that if those kids don’t die,  and they don’t have to, then they can end up studying in that library.” -John Green

Going to College (in Ethiopia)

In which John talks to students at Addis Ababa University (and Bill Gates) and discusses the diversity and complexity of contemporary Ethiopia. Friendly reminder: YouTube adds a second to videos for mysterious reasons; by extensive precedent, this is not punishable.
