Awesome2: Rick Chen

Each day this week, I am introducing a member of the second Awesome Melbourne Foundation Board. We each have day-jobs doing this, that and the other but meet monthly to give a $1000 grant to an awesome project of our choosing. We are currently running a campaign to find folks to complete our board. Interested? Stay tuned for the full application details!
