Project for Awesome is a yearly livestream event hosted by John & Hank Green's Foundation for World Suck in which participants create short videos advocating for charities. Money raised during the second half of the livestream is granted to the charities that have achieved the most votes on the Project for Awesome website across all of their videos; in past years this has been about $20,000 each to winners.
Since 2015, members of the effective altruism community have coordinated to make videos for a shortlist of charities voted on in a Facebook group ahead of time to increase the chances that those charities recieve the grant.
In 2021, the amount granted to EA charities was $194k between 7 winners of the 8 coordinated on by the Facebook group; in 2019, this was $59k between 4 winners; in 2018, this was $56k between 3 winners; in 2017, this was $39k between 2 winners; in 2016, this was $50k between 2 winners; and in 2015, the relevant amount was $25k to the Against Malaria Foundation.
