March Winner: Mighty Wall of Tics!

28 Mar

We are honoured (with a ‘u’ – this is Awesome Toronto) to present the March grant to Ken Butland and his idea for the Mighty Wall of Tics!

The Mighty Wall will be a site where people with Tourette Syndrome can compete with each other to see who has the cooler tic.

Ken works for the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada and has had this idea for a while. He’s not been able to get a funder to step up and make it happen, however. It’s the kind of project that’s just edgy, witty, and aggressive enough to cause people to lose sight of its brilliance for its seeming indiscretion.

Fortunately, discretion isn’t part of what we do.

Update: It’s up! The Great Wall of Tics.
