Blog entry Freericers Don't Forget to be Awesome

22 December 2011

The Don't Forget to be Awesome (DFTBA) is an annual event that takes place in December. Citizens of the world come together on YouTube to create videos for causes, and use the DFTBA network to increase views for the videos so they rank high for search engine results (thereby raising additional awareness for the cause). Clever, no?

Given all the intelligent Freericers out there, this year we saw a flood of DFTBA videos dedicated to our site:

Thank you to all the creative and committed Freericers out there who NFTBA (Never Forget to be Awesome).

If you have created a Freerice video that we missed, please share the link in the comments area!

Freerice is maintained by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme, the world's largest humanitarian organization fighting hunger worldwide. To find out more go to

Don't Forget to Be Awesome (DFTBA) is a phrase used my Nerdfighters, the following of the Vlogbrothers. The actual project that you blog about is called the Project for Awesome. Please be accurate in your posts, especially when describing a project done by people out of the goodness of their hearts. I found your inaccuracy disrespectful, as it indicated that doing the proper homework was not necessary before this post was written.

With best intentions: it's actually called P4A or 'Project For Awesome'. DFTBA is just some kind of 'code word' we use. So, DFTBA!

The event isn't actually called DFTBA; it's the Project for Awesome. DFTBA is just a slogan the creators use with their viewers :)
