But on this topic:
Parents are right to be concerned about charitable initiatives on the Internet. But the Project for Awesome is not a scam. We’ve been doing this for six years. We’ve distributed money to organizations like Save the Children, kiva, Partners in Health, the Harry Potter Alliance, and many more.
100% of the proceeds from the Indiegogo campaign will be distributed to charities chosen during the Project for Awesome. The Foundation has no overhead—everyone who works on it, from the Board of Directors to the people who pack up calendars and mail them to you*—volunteer their time.
So donate, if you can afford to! The indiegogo is already over $25,000, and hopefully this will be the biggest and best p4a yet. And remember, EVERY DOLLAR donated up to $50,000 will be matched by our generous anonymous donors. Yay!
* Full disclosure: In many cases, the people mailing calendars and the Board of Directors are the same people.
