Project4Awesome is live: act now to help life extension

Project4Awesome, the initiative by the Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck that I posted about two days back, is now live.

What it means in short is that, if you are able to upload videos to a YouTube channel, you can make videos to support your favourite charities—SENS Research Foundation and the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation come to mind—upload them, and then submit them to P4A’s website, where viewers can vote for the videos/charities they liked the most. The event will last for the whole weekend, and the most liked charities will receive a prize of $25,000 each.

I wasn’t at all into making videos until I heard of P4A; for the occasion, I opened a Rejuvenaction YouTube channel to upload my videos to. I really don’t see myself becoming a regular YouTuber, but for now you’ll at least find my videos in support of LEAF and SENS there.

So, what happens now?

However many or few videos in favour of LEAF, SENS, and other rejuvenation-focused charities there are, we need to get people to vote for them! Ask your friends and family to vote for your videos, if you made any; if possible, get them to vote for other videos endorsing SENS, LEAF, etc. Spread the word on your social media, Reddit, and wherever you see fit. Don’t assume you don’t need to bother because others will, because… that’s exactly what they are thinking, and that’s a sure-fire way to get near-zero votes.

You can vote for my videos on the Project4Awesome website here (LEAF) and here (SENS). (I don’t personally gain anything from having my own videos voted, but I can’t link every single one, and this is a good way to get you to go there and have a look at the rest 😉 )

UPDATE: You can find all LEAF videos here; all SENS videos can be found here. Remember to check these periodically, as new videos may be coming all weekend.

You can also watch my videos below, but PLEASE, do not forget to go to P4A and do your voting. Every video endorsing charities in the rejuvenation field is a good video to vote for.

  1. How often can you vote for one video though?
    I voted for all of those videos 10 minutes ago. Just visited the site again and it is possible to vote again for the very same vids.

    • Yes, I noticed that too. I don’t know if they keep track of IPs or anything, but it does seem you can vote multiple times for the same video. I find it would be in a bad taste, though, so I’d rather keep asking more people to vote. 🙂
