You can watch the 2.5 hour entirety of Hank’s EqualityFTW livestream from earlier this week right here. Includes pizza, bacon, songs, a bit of impassioned speaking and oh so much more.
Hank Green’s music is going to be an actual, physical disc. Not just a digital download. If you didn’t provide your address don’t worry — you will be contacted later for it!
Be there or be square! Hank will be doing all kinds of amusing and crazy things, we’re sure, while rallying support and donations for the Harry Potter Alliance’s Equality FTW campaign.
The Harry Potter Alliance has organized a campaign called Equality FTW. They’re raising money to continue the awesome work they’ve done to ensure equal opportunity for all kinds of neglected populations: from undocumented immigrants to LGBTQ people to children in underserved community.
There are several cool perks: You can get a wizard rock Hank EP or the first 6,000 words of my abandoned story THE SEQUEL or (as I chose) get the Potter Puppet Pals to hold a sign with your name on it.
But most importantly, you’ll be giving to an organization that has meant a lot to nerdfighteria for a long time (they facilitated many of the early Projects for Awesome) and also meant a lot to Esther Earl (the HPA also has partnered with This Star Won’t Go Out).
So they’ve helped us a lot over the years. Please join me in helping them continue the fight for equal rights and equal access.
I remember John reading parts of The Sequel back in 2009 on blogtv. It was insanely mysterious, intriguing, and suspenseful, so I for sure am gonna pledge money to get that & I suggest y’all do as well. Or to get Hank’s EP of wrock songs! Or any of the other prizey perks (I have heard on good authority that there will be a bunch more rad pledge level things being released in the near future, so look out for those!).
You can keep up with the campaigns developments by following the Harry Potter Alliance’s twitter.
You guys might remember the Harry Potter Alliance from the Helping Haiti Heal Campaign, if you don’t know anything about the HPA they are basically Dumbledore’s Army for the real world, using the lessons and themes from the Harry Potter books to raise money for important causes. Knowing Nerdfighters and our need to decrease world suck I thought you guys might help. The HPA have a chance to win 250K to help fund their efforts. It only takes 3 seconds to vote and they could really use the help of the nerdfighter community.

We’re a little late on the game to tell people to go vote. Tom Felton even tweeted about it! It takes 30 seconds, go help a great cause, Nerdfighters.
