MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
Welcome to the Augusta Chiwy Foundation Website
Warm greetings and a pleasant welcome, on behalf of the Board of Directors, to the official website of the Augusta Chiwy Foundation. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our Foundation and the worldwide projects that we are developing and presenting to people all around the globe. We trust that you will find your visit on this website meaningful and inspiring. As you walk through the stories and educational areas on these pages, you will be able to learn about the incredible life of Augusta Chiwy and her amazing display of compassion and courage that is an example to all of us of how we can impact the lives of others.
After the worldwide viewing of the Emmy Award Winning film, “Searching for Augusta - The Forgotten Angel of Bastogne,” this Foundation was established. Our research began to uncover that this story was just one of many. There are countless forgotten stories of men, women and children from all walks of life that have had a major impact on people, throughout history through their selfless acts of kindness and compassion. These stories have been shared with students around the world and with families who were personally touched by these heroic actions. Each and every one of these amazing stories needs to be brought to life in film and through education so that generations to come will be able to learn and believe that every person has a voice in history and that the harmony of all cultures is paramount for humanity.
I have personally witnessed the myriad of emotions and gratefulness from organizations, individuals and young children who have seen our films and have stated how it has encouraged them to reach out and make a difference in the world around them. The Foundation has set forth a focus of “Inspiration – Education – Information” in every project that we address. As you learn more about our goals, initiatives and mission, along with the many projects that we are seeking to develop, we invite you to work with us. You can be a vital part of this Foundation’s success and ability to allow our films and education to span the world by joining with us through your support and communication to others of the Augusta Chiwy Foundation.
I thank you for visiting our site and learning more about us. If you have any questions about the Foundation, please contact me at Steven.Croft@AugustaChiwy.org.
