A few months ago, I began a stint on the board of a community project, that I believe, has potential for many great things.
The John and Margaret Thomas Community Endowment Fund is a foundation that brings community awareness through the differing aspects of worldly cultures.
So far, the Foundation has given grants to several Colorado cultural groups, and has itself, been a part of several gatherings in the Colorado area.
And each year, in addition to grant giving, we have helped to host the Aurora Arts Festival bringing in the likes of world renowned Nigerian drummer and dancer Baba Joda; a poets and writers gathering; a mime troupe; a Samoan musical group, and much more!
We look forward to the international festivals this year, along with bridging the cultural gap by bringing events into public awareness.
However, like most endowments and foundations, we rely on donations, so that we may in turn give back to the community. If you feel like you can donate, or know someone that would, please visit the web site and click on the 'Donations' tab.

Celebrate diversity, as much as possible ...
Respect is taken, when respect is given
Namaste and Slainte
