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

There are just 10 days left to submit your nerdfighter art proposals!

Gettin’ Real with Hank

In which Hank talks about how cool and weird the things we are able to do are, how he still feels insecure and sad anyway, and how overwhelming decisions have been freaking him out, and that a simple solution suggested itself (was suggested by his brother.)

THE SURVEY IS HERE!

WOW!
We are so close to getting to $100,000 (which will be matched by Bill Gates!) to help get 8,000 people in Ethiopia access to clean, safe water.
And it looks like we’re going to get there in two days. Amazing. THANK YOU.

We passed $100,000 yesterday! Up to $133,000 now! WOW! Keep it up!

If you saw Hank’s recent video unearthing his teenage creations, you’ve already gotten a sneak peek at this new perk. Exclusive to Equality FTW, Hank is compiling the best (worst?) parts of his high school notes into a zine, which will be printed and mailed to you via owl post. 

You can also get a copy as part of our special Nerdfighter Bundle, which includes an unsigned Price of Dawn poster (the only place you can get one!) designed by Risa Rodil, Maureen Johnson’s John Green/Benedict Cumberbatch/Doritos fanfiction sequel, and our original Book-Specific Bookmarks. 

Donate now to support the Harry Potter Alliance and get the first ever Green Bros. Zine
