For Awesome Day 2019, our trustees engaged our community to help us grant $1,000 to strangers throughout the Triangle! We handed 100 community members envelopes with $10 inside and a note letting the recipient know they are AWESOME! Those 100 community members were instructed to find a stranger, give them the gift, and tell them why they're awesome: "Your socks are awesome!" "You're awesome for riding public transportation!" "Thank you for holding the door, you're awesome!". These 100 envelopes traveled around our city and helped to brighten 100 people's day and reminded them that our community is awesome!
