AWEgust for AWEtism is a month-long fundraiser that brings out the AWE in AWEtism. People donate towards the achievement of a personal ‘I CAN’ challenge over AWEgust to raise funds for the I CAN Network, Australia’s first social enterprise predominately run by people on the Autism Spectrum.
In 2015, AWEgust for AWEtism raised over $30,000, which allowed us to:
- Build ongoing mentoring relationships for 300 kids, teenagers and young adults on the Autism Spectrum.
- Offer 6 scholarships for young people to participate in our program.
- Set up 2 ‘I CAN School’ programs (mentoring, talks and training) in schools that can’t support a mentoring program in their budget.
In 2016, we raised over $54,000. It’s never too early to think about your challenge for AWEgust 2017! We will let you know to sign up through our newsletter and social media pages.
