MNFF Supports the YouTube Project For Awesome
by Roxy Black @ 12/18/09 15:49
Once a year in the week before Christmas, fans of the American author John Green and his brother Hank (known as the VlogBrothers on YouTube) get together to take over youtube for a day.
This day is known as the “Project 4 Awesome” and youtubers are invited to make a short video advertising a worthy cause.
The exciting news is that MNFF is currently planning its own charity project which we will be announcing in the new year! The charity we would like to support is called Room to Read.
What Room to Read does is build libraries and give books to countries with poor access to education. They work with local communities, translating literature into native languages, building schools and generally providing education to as many children as they can.
They currently work in Nepal, Vietnam, Cambodia, India, Sri Lanka, Laos, South Africa, Zambia and Bangladesh, with plans to move further into Asia, Africa and South America in the new year.
Here at MNFF we believe in the power of literature and the right to an education for every child. We hope you agree with this sentiment and will look forward to our exciting project in 2010!
As part of the Project for Awesome, we have created this video
to raise awareness of ourselves and the charity. Thank you to Molly, OliveOil_Med, for being so wonderful and putting it together for us. All we ask right now is that you watch the video, rate it using the stars in the bottom left corner, maybe send it to a few friends or leave a comment for other people to read. If you want to, you can go to the Room to Read website and donate to the cause right away. If you don't have the money to donate, sit tight! You'll like what we've got planned! This project is designed to spread the word about charities that deserve the recognition. We believe Room to Read does. Please watch our video now.
Thank you for your time.
