Make a Video to Help the HPA Keep Decreasing Worldsuck

Project for Awesome is an annual YouTube event where thousands of people post videos advocating for charities. The Harry Potter Alliance is one of those charities.

Over 90% of the HPA's funding comes from our members or from fandom institutions like LeakyCon and the Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck. We take a lot of pride in being an organization that exists to bring fans together and to make fandom a little more magical.

Point values for videos will be awarded by our team of wizard accountants. Entrants earning 75 points or more will receive a free Hang In There Baby Crookshanks poster. The entry that garners the most points will receive an HPA Prize Pack including a Books Turn Muggles Into Wizards hoodie, an HPA t-shirt of your choice, a fancy Books Turn Muggles Into Wizards journal, and a subscription to the Wizard Activist News Dispatch (W.A.N.D.).

The Awesome Points Checklist

Check off what awesome things you've done in your video and submit to have your points tallied by our team of wizard accountants. Remember, Project For Awesome happens on December 12th and 13th, so make sure we receive your video on or before the 13th! Need more video making tips?
