Do you have an awesome idea? The Awesome Foundation awards $1000 to each month’s most brilliant idea!
The Awesome Foundation was founded in Boston in 2009, but it’s a wordwide network of people. They are devoted to “forwarding the interest of awesomeness in the universe.” They distribute a series of $1,000 grants to projects and their creators. They give the grants with no strings attached and no claim or ownership over the projects. Money is pooled between 10 “micro-trustees” focused on a specific interest within their cell group or geographic location. The money is given in cash or check up front.
The foundation has grown since its humble beginnings to encompass cell groups world wide working to influence positive change projects that effect the ecosystem and more. The neat thing about the foundation is that you don’t have to be rich to partake in it and make a difference. The money given can be specified towards an area of your own interest, too. To make the world a little more awesome one month at a time, check out The Awesome Foundation.
