The very first Project for Awesome was organized in 2007, and has been held every year since. Starting in 2014, Project For Awesome will change dates, now occurring annually on the second Friday & Saturday of December, which this year is December 12-13. During Project for Awesome, thousands of people post videos about and advocating for charities that decrease the overall level of world suck. As a community, we promote these videos and raise money for the charities. In 2013, the community raised over $850,000, benefitting twenty charities. Legally speaking, the Project for Awesome is a project of the Foundation to Decrease World Suck, Inc. a Montana based 501(c)3 charitable organization. (Source)
