St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital I Project For Awesome 2017


Welcome back! It’s that time of year again,
y’all. – Project for Awesome time.
– Yeah. Now you probably know, but, uh, Project for Awesome
is community driven
charity event put on by our friends,
John and Hank Green, basically people make
YouTube videos to show
support for their favorite charities. Then people vonate–
vonate– – vote for their favorite…
– Well, that’s kinda what
you do. On the website
and there’s a live
streaming event. We’ll get into all that,
but, um, uh, the first part
of this video is
to highlight, uh, our chosen charity. Yeah, we’re gonna participate
like we do every year, uh, and this year,
we’re doing one of our
favorite charities. – St. Jude Children’s
Research Hospital.
– Mm-hmm. Uh, we’re giving them
top aid in their efforts
to research, treat, and ultimately
defeat childhood
cancer and other life threatening
diseases, uh, and I’m gonna read
a little bit about St. Jude and why we like them so much. – Yeah.
– Um,their philosophy is that
no child is denied treatment
based on race, religion,
or a family’s ability to pay.
Families never receive
a bill from St. Jude
for treatment,
travel, housing, or food,because all the family
should worry about
in that situation – is helping their
child live.
– Exactly. Um, St. Jude has
treated children from
all 50 states from around the world.Their goal is 100% survival.Uh, the treatments
invented by St. Jude
have helped to push
the overall childhood cancer
survival rate
from 20% to more than 80%since they opened more
than 50 years ago. And you know,
as a parent. I mean, you start
to experience things
with your children that you can never
anticipate, like, any type
of boo boo. From the smallest age,
you want to do everything
you can… – Yeah.
– To help them, and, um, I mean, I know that
we both been through
things with our kids that are like,
okay, stop the presses… – Mm-hmm.
– I’ve got– we gotta
do everything we can for our kids and,
um, if you have cancer or if you have
a child who has cancer. I mean, it’s the type
of thing you don’t
wanna be thinking about can I afford this? – Right.
– You know? You don’t
want to have to filter everything through that. So that’s the great thing
about what St. Jude does that, uh, that is
extremely exciting. – And effective.
– Right. In terms of, uh,
the way they’re moving
the needle when it comes
to childhood cancer
and things like that so, um, it’s a tremendous
organization and you
can go to… – Right.
– …to donate. So, join us
in doing that. That’s step one.
The second thing, um,
we wanna move onto is, uh, send you over to
over to Projectforawesome.comUh, you can check out,
like I said, other people’s
videos,
you can vote for
your favorite charity,
you can make your own video,
– first of all,
– Mm-hmm. but, um, the– when you vote for your favorite
charities over there, the top 20 charities
voted for by the community, uh, will receive
a percentage of all
of the money raised through Project for Awesome over the course
of the live stream. – And last year–
– That could be a lot
of money. They raised $2,000,000.So that is a lot
of awesome that is happening.
