The students of The John Green School in Rural Bangladesh have a message for the world - and there’s only 24 hours left to hear them. They want you to vote for them and their story in the Webby Awards. Why? Because they can’t do so themselves.

Voting ends 11:59 pm on Thursday, Pacific Time (Los Angeles)



Dear Nerdfighters, many of you may not be aware that for the past several months I’ve been working to build a school in Bangladesh with donations from the YouTube and Nerdfighter community. This school will be called The John Green School. Here is the latest update that I just posted to YouTube regarding the progress of the construction of this school. DFTBA.

Shawn’s work and videos really are a beautiful testament to the power of community. You can see previous updates on the school here and here, learn more about the Uncultured Project here (and ways to support it), and keep up to date with the school’s progress by following Shawn on twitter, instagram, and tumblr.
