Please help us carry on Calder's legacy of giving back at our House of Awesome 3 event on June 6th. Our goal is to pack out and donate 2,500 backpacks full of school supplies for homeless, foster, and disadvantaged children in Los Angeles!
We will be donating items to these children through the wonderful non-profit, School on Wheels (https://schoolonwheels.org).
Please help us send 2,500+ underserved youth back to school in the Fall of 2019 with brand new, high quality backpacks and school supplies so that they have the tools and confidence they need to learn and thrive in school!
About Caleb & Calder Sloan's Awesome Foundation
On April 13, 2014, the parents of Calder Jacob Sloan kissed their son goodbye for the last time. Just a week after his 7th birthday, Calder was electrocuted and killed instantly in his backyard pool.
With an unfathomable amount of pain, the Sloans were surrounded by an immense amount of love and support from family, friends, coworkers, and even strangers. Instead of letting their son's death destroy them, they decided to dedicate themselves to carry on Calder's impact of helping others.
Calder's mantra was Adventure. Laughter. Kindness. He was so full of life and had so many incredible traits that he could only be summed up as AWESOME. With his nickname "Mr. Awesome", Calder sought out any opportunity to live life to the fullest and help others.
In both of their sons' names, the Sloans founded The Caleb and Calder Sloan's Awesome Foundation with a focus on helping disadvantaged children and empowering kids to pay it forward themselves. With their son's self-portrait drawing as their logo, they have inspired and built a community of kindness and giving back across the world.
