"Without joy the Awesome Foundation would be the Cheap and Efficient Foundation, which is a lot less catchy."
Christina Xu is a trustee of the Awesome Foundation founded in Boston by 10 friends. Now with chapters worldwide, the independent, self-funded foundation awards $1,000 grants monthly to small projects they deem "awesome".
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
