We are thrilled to announce that we have an exclusive shirt for LeakyCon! Thank you Megan P and Helen P for the wonderful design!

While I may not have known Esther (and really wish I could have), I have found a place in my heart for her, and am fascinated by the short, yet wonderful life this beautiful girl led.


Rest in Awesome, Esther.

I feel bad that I don't know this, but when is Esther day?

The Weapon we have is Love.

(I copied a pencil drawing I found on the internet and made it in blue and green colored pencil so I only take a little of the credit.)

This was one of my Esther Day projects that I might give to one of my friends. I might keep it for myself because I like it more than I thought I would.

The Nerdfighters of Israel gathered to cry together at the premiere night of The Fault In Our Stars movie, and took part in the amazing #EstherDay project by the HPA. We calculated the ticket price as if 70 people were coming, but as 88 showed up, we ended up with some money in our hands, which we decided to donate to TSWGO. All in all, I’d say it was a pretty awesome event.

Join the childhood cancer community to #StepUp NCI funding for childhood cancer research. This campaign, just launched today, is being coordinated not by a single organization fighting childhood cancer, but all of us who have. Many organizations, nonprofit groups, and individuals who have made it their personal vendetta to bring awareness and funding to childhood cancer.

Though we be many, we can’t do this alone. We need your help to stand up to Congress. Write a note to Congress, tweet them if you will: #StepUp : More Funding for Childhood Cancer Research. Increase NCI appropriations to reauthorize the Carolyn Pryce Walker Act!

Click through to email or tweet to your elected officials and tell them to #StepUp to the plate in the battle against childhood cancer. Together we can save lives and families from childhood cancer.

'The Fault in Our Stars' is at its core a love story between two teenagers. My sister never got to have a relationship like that. She got to experience just a few weeks of being 16. Witnessing a life and a romance she could have had made me feel unbearably sad and yet, oddly, uplifted. It’s as if, through Hazel, my sister is able to continue having new experiences. As if she got a sequel.

I can vouch that my sister’s life was filled with other forms of love. Having a support group to bolster her, having an online community to socialize with, helped Esther to smile and press on. She was one of five siblings, all of us extremely close. (Whereas Hazel is an only child, texting below the dinner table while her parents carry on a conversation.) When John Green promised to make Esther Day videos for my sister’s birthday each year, she asked him to make the day about “family and love.” Esther encouraged us as a family to never hesitate to say “I love you,” to express ourselves honestly, to hug and laugh.

"My sister Esther inspired ‘The Fault in Our Stars.’ The movie is her sequel." by Evangeline Earl

The Esther Day Project seeks to celebrate Esther Earl’s vision for a holiday about platonic love by preparing for Esther Day on August 3rd.
