Meet Kelly, The First Recipient of a Nerdfighter Indie Creator Grant

So Vlogbrothers started running pre-rolls more than a month ago, so we’ve had the first lump of money come in. The biggest chunk of the first payment (and probably a fairly large chunk of the second one) will be going to Kelly Kend to help her work on her documentary “Yeah, Maybe No” which is about consent and sexual abuse.

Just by chance, I was at the same conference as Kelly last weekend so we got to hang out (and I can confirm that she is very smart, very nice, and very well informed on this topic.) 

She’s a survivor herself, and just an all around awesome person, and Nerdfighteria is responsible for the money she now has to finish her documentary.

John Green is such an inspiration! I’m glad he sees the magic in reading and shares/encourages everyone to seek the experience.
