The world breathes ... and Awesome expands.

When Tim Hwang, Kara Brickman and the other founders of Awesome Foundation crafted the vision for the organization
"The Awesome Foundation for the Arts and Sciences is an ever-growing, worldwide network of people devoted to forwarding the interest of awesomeness in the universe."
 I don't think they had any idea how accurately - and fast! - their vision would come to fruition.  There are now 19 official AF Chapters with at least a dozen more in their infancy.   AF Calgary is proud to be part of the AF New Chapter Mentor Program and we are currently helping Edmonton, Lethbridge, Kingston ON and Turin Italy get their Awesome Chapter up and running.  

In addition to giving $1000 cash grants to awesome ideas, the part I love most about Awesome Foundation is the global, all-inclusive promotion of great people and the belief in their awesome ideas.  This is the most rewarding thing I've done in my life!
