Awesome Ottawa is the Ottawa chapter of the Awesome Foundation, an ever-growing worldwide network of people devoted to forwarding the interest of awesome in the universe.
Awesome Foundation chapters distribute $1,000 awards every month to projects and their creators, with the money pooled from the pockets of individual “trustees.” The chapters are autonomous, made of 10 or so trustees (10 x $100 = $1000), and assemble around geographic areas or topics of interest. Awards are provided with no strings attached, and the Awesome Foundation claims no ownership over the projects it supports.
Over the last four years, more than 80 Awesome Foundation chapters have sprung up globally to support the worldwide ecosystem of awesomeness. Together they’ve handed out more than $2 million.
