How Awesome Is That?

The Awesome Foundation, launched in Boston, but rapidly spreading to other cities (including DC) has as its mission:

Forwarding the interest of Awesome in the universe, $1,000 at a time.

How does it work? They award a $1000 grant every month to the most awesome, crazy, brilliant idea submitted. Again, quoting from their website:
Projects range across a wide spectrum, from public artwork to mobile applications to scientific experiments.
Their blog talks in more detail about projects that have been funded, among other things.

And the application process is really simple. They advise you be as specific as possible, and they like ideas that bring communities together, sparking joy and hope for the future.

Got an awesome idea? What are you waiting for - go apply!
