Please read the sidebar for important information! Voting is now closed - thanks to everyone who voted!
You get to decide what I do with Save the Children. There are five options and there is enough money to do either one big thing or 2 or 3 of the smaller options. The money for this comes from the hundreds of people from around the world who have already donated to me via PayPal.
"The Uncultured Project" is just a funny name for my work trying to help those less fortunate in developing countries. It's not a charity, NGO, or anything like that. It's about what we as individuals united together can do to make a difference in the world. Find out more at:
DON'T feel obliged to donate to me - I'm not a charity! I'm just a guy. You'll find more information here:
HOW TO VOTE: You don't need to have made a donation in order to vote! Make a VIDEO RESPONSE and let me know which option you'd like me to do! You can also leave a text comment if you prefer, but I'd like to give more weight to video responses.
- Build a Deep Tube Well
- Build a Pond Sand Filter (aka PSF or Biosand Filter)
- Provide 80 Salter Scales to Fight Malnutrition
- Build a School Latrine
- Repair a School Damaged by Cyclone Sidr
IMPORTANT NOTE: There is enough money to rebuild the school OR 2 or 3 of any of the other options.
I'd like to thank Save the Children USA for their assistance and support in helping me to do this. I'd also like to give my heartfelt thanks to the Save the Children staff at the following offices: Westport (USA), Dhaka, Barisal, and Barguna.
I'd also like to thank Jamison Young, Stefan D, and Josh Woodward for lending their music for this video.
Jamison Young ("How Far" - intro music)
Stefan D ("Best Mind")
Josh Woodward ("Shower Scene Instrumental")
This video uses the song "How Far" by Jamison Young from the album "Shifting Sands of a Blue Car". This song is licensed under the Creative Commons under an in perpetuity "attribution-only" license.
Last but not least, I'd like to thank the following YouTubers for collaborating with me on this video:
I apologize for not making a video earlier. It took a while to make this happen! It also didn't help that my 3-month old LaCie harddrive died with a lot of important footage on it. I was already making this video when it died and had to start from scratch. Don't. Buy. LaCie.
Subtitle Typo: The subtitles for the lady speaking about the deep tube well was meant to read as "It feels good to have this because all of us can use this TO drink and wash our food & dishes". This was a bit difficult to translate and I had to actually consult two different people to help me translate this. In the process I seemed to have overlooked this grammatical typo. Sorry to any English teachers out there.
About "Challenge Poverty": There is actually a small registered charity in Scotland that goes by the name "Challenge Poverty". This video isn't about those guys. I came up with the name "Challenge Poverty" after being inspired by some youtubers who have put up "challenge" videos - like "Challenge Adam" and "Challenge Charlie" :)
