John and Hank Green make videos on the internet. They're surprisingly good at it and, as of 2013, have received more than 500,000,000 views on their various projects and no that wasn't a typo. With those kinds of numbers, we thought it was important to design a really beautiful website that showcased all of the things we're doing.

CONTACTING JOHN AND HANK

Hank's email is [email protected] John's email is [email protected] - Yes, we do read these, no, we don't often respond. These are our actual addresses that we actually use for every-day correspondance, so please don't spam us.

We do not have mailing addresses, sorry. Also, don't try and find our houses, because that totally creeps us out. It is possible that you'd like to ask some questions that we've answered in the FAQ below.

FAQ

Can you say Happy Birthday to my friend for me / propose to my girlfriend / ask a girl to prom / tell my mom she's great?
I'm just going to say it now: Happy Birthday! CONGRATULATIONS! Save a dance for me! Your mom is, indeed, great! The reason we can't do these shoutouts is pretty simple: There are too many of them. Wondrously, many nerdfighters have a birthday every single day, and if we wish ONE friend a happy birthday, then we will have to wish many more friends a happy birthday, and then eventually our lives will become this weird Kafka-esque descent into full-time 24-hour-a-day happy-birthday-wishing, and our families will feel neglected and wonder why we never wish THEM a happy birthday, and we'll stop making vlogbrothers video and it will be totally tragic.

Is there an address where I can send you stuff?
Yes and no. John has a P.O. Box, #301252 in Indianapolis, IN 46230. But it should be noted that we do not reply to snail mail. There are no exceptions to this rule. We do not even reply to snail mail from our mom.

But what is your home address?
Please do not visit us at home or try to figure out where we live or send us creepy stuff in the mail. That is frankly kind of terrifying and makes us (particularly the half of us with social anxiety) feel like we are endangering the privacy and well-being of our families, which is not a good feeling.

Can I interview you?
Whether you're doing a middle-school project, a graduate thesis, or a front-page spread for the New York Times, the answer is the same. Maybe. It depends on whether or not we are in one of our extremlely-overworked periods. If we don't respond, it's simply because we don't have time, and we do feel a bit bad about it.

Why haven't you covered issue X in a Vlogbrothers video?
Who knows! When it comes to news stories, we tend not to discuss stories that we feel the news media in the US is adequately covering. We also only talk about things we understand (at least a little). Plus, there are a lot of things that interest us, but there are also of course some things that don't interest us. The vlogbrothers channel is not an attempt to be an encyclopedic examination of the universe. That said, we are always happy to see your suggestions for videos/blog posts/etc. in comments and @replies and tumblr asks.

Can you promote X charity/fundraiser?
Again, there are many worthy causes, and we can only discuss and support a few of them. Every year, the Project for Awesome offers you the opportunity to make a video about the charity or cause that matters most to you, and then the nerdfighter community together chooses which charities to support with the p4a fundraising funds. This results in a huge diversity of causes supported: Last year, 10 different organizations--from the Harry Potter Alliance to Save the Children--each received more than $40,000 from the nerdfighter community. Hank and I in particular are passionate about global health, poverty, and education. Our personal efforts tend to focus on organizations and institutions with similar concerns.

I've made something. Can you review it in your vlog/if I pay you will you talk about it/and other product placement questions?
We do not do paid product placement ever. Even if you want to pay us $50,000. It's not the relationship we want to have with our audience. Our videos don't tend to be review-ish, but we're always happy to hear about cool new things that people in nerdfighteria are making.

Can we make a collab video together?
We don't have much time to collaborate at the moment, sadly.

Can I have your autograph if I send an SAE?
No. We just don't have the infrastructure at the moment to sort and reply to large volumes of mail (or even small volumes of mail, come to think of it). However, there are relatively inexpensive ways to get our autographs, through DFTBA Records or in John's case, by getting a signed book from John's favorite independent bookstore, The Book Cellar.

Can I be in the TFiOS movie?
I don't even know if I can get *myself* a role in the TFiOS movie, let alone you. I am not casting or making the movie; I am merely the author of the novel the movie is based upon. If I am given information about open auditions or opportunities for extras, I'll certainly let you know.
