John: Happy Project for Awesome! 
Hank: Wooooooooo!! 
John: Ba-ohh 
Hank: That was disappointing.

Emily: This isn’t—this isn’t my first rodeo on the Project for Awesome livestream.

Sherrie: Doesn’t he look beautiful today?

Gabby: Wait, you know John Green?

Nathan [doing an impression of Obama]: We’re gonna be here, in Trump’s America, we gotta do a couple things.

Sabrina [rapping like Hamilton]: How does a ragtag volunteer army in need of a shower somehow defeat a global superpower?

Mamrie: Does it hurt?

[dance break]

Team SciShow: Woo! 
Hank: And it's been a fantastic Project for Awesome. I’m so proud of this community.

I’m back! Thanks for our fabulous tenth ever Project for Awesome. Had a great time.

My mind is still a little bit hungover from it. Also, just coming back! I'm—I’m so glad that that’s how I came back. To the Project for Awesome, to Nerdfighteria working together to raise over two million dollars. It’s still going on, by the way, if you wanna get one of those last-minute perks, if you watch this within the first twelve hours of it being up, you can go to and get some stuff.

Obviously thanks to everybody who helped make this happen, everybody who donated, everybody who shared it, everybody who voted on videos, everybody who made videos, all of the volunteers who put it all together, all of the people who joined us in the livestream.

Going away for the last six weeks has been really weird. I’ve never done it before, never left this channel in almost ten years of making videos. And it was a really weird time to do that. I’m really used to, like, when something in the world is going on that I want to talk about, just talking about it, and it was interesting to take a break from that during a moment in which everyone really wanted to say some things. I think it really changed me, and I’m really interested to see how that manifests as I get back into making videos and get a chance to say some of the things I’ve been thinking about.

We got many more larger donations this year, so I’m gonna thank a bunch of those people in the description. We also got a $25,000 matching donation from YouTube as part of their new Creators for Change project, which I will link to in the description. Basically, YouTube is reaching out with money to a bunch of different YouTube creators who are dealing with social issues on their channels. Creators who are promoting awareness, tolerance, and empathy with the kind of content that they make. It’s a really cool program. Link in the description.

John, thanks so much for doing this with me. Everybody, thank you for your support of the Project for Awesome. if you want to get those last-minute perks. John, I’ll see you on Monday.
