Still don't know what a Nerdfighter is?

As Hank and John would say, if you think you may be a Nerdfighter, you probably are and you just don't know it yet. Nerdfighters are all about increasing awesome and decreasing worldsuck. They do this by promoting awareness and knowledge, education and philanthropy. They are they largest group on Kiva.org, an organization that lends money to people in other countries in order to help their businesses. Being a Nerdfighter isn't just about being a fan of the Vlogbrothers and their videos, it's a way of life.

Want to get involved?

Follow us on Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, and Facebook for up-to-date information about the film, and opportunities that may get you featured in the documentary!

Most importantly: TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT THIS! We need to get the word out to Nerdfighters, because this will truly be a community effort. Plus, we need to find people to meet up with at VidCon!

Uhh... I'm not really a Nerdfighter. Can I still help?

FOR SURE! We want to spread the love. The largest goal of this project, beyond even involving Nerdfighters, is to educate the public about what this great group of young people is doing to help the world, on so many levels.

Let us know if you have a film festival near you that you'd like us to enter. Like graphic design? We need your help! And best of all, I assure you you'll make friends along the way.

So where is my money going?

The good thing about documentaries is that they're much less expensive than fictional films. Essentially the only things we have to pay for are travel and accommodations. We are paying for our meals out of our own pockets. However, since we're using Ball State's equipment, we have to get that insured, which also isn't cheap.

Still not convinced?
