Thank you, Chicago AWESOME Foundation!


Dan gratefully accepting support from the Chicago AWESOME Foundation’s trustees. (They kept the giant $1,000-bill prop but sent Dan home with actual cash money. Thank you!)

The AWESOME Foundation is … a really, really lovely thing, powered by a simple idea, a website, and a bunch of wonderful people.

The idea: If ten people in a given place all agree to put up a hundred bucks a month, suddenly they’re a foundation! They can make thousand-dollar grants. As of this writing, people do this in 96 places around the world.

Including Chicago, where the local chapter’s trustees gave this project a thousand dollars last night. THANK YOU SO MUCH!  We will be putting that money to good use.
