AWOM One Year Anniversary


  • craft social club 100 Collins Avenue Miami Beach, FL, 33139 United States (map)

One year ago on this day I created something that made even the smallest difference and its called Angel Watching Over Me. 

After the loss of my father Charlie Akiba my whole life changed, my families life changed, my whole world CHANGED. 

He was such a kind, gentle yet strong and good man, I just had to make sure I kept his legacy going through me, and this is what came out of it:

The Angel Watching Over Me Foundation: We support those who have lost a loved one.

This year supprt groups were created twice a month for anyone to come and speak about their grief or loss. We teamed up with TimE Emotional Guidance Center the two most amazing therapists are on board guiding us on how to live with our loss, but never to forget our angel.

We have also donated to two different lung cancer associations @americanlungassociation and Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. 

AWOM has also thrown two halloween parties for children with illnesses at Nicklaus Childrens Hospital and Joe DiMaggio Childrens hospital. Just making the smallest difference for one hour was life changing for these kids, and thats what AWOM is all about.

AWOM has also thrown four awesome and fashionable events in order to raise funds to be able to make a change in peoples lives. 

The point of this foundation is to really help people directly who have been impacted by loss and also act as an angel to other foundations and others, simply any act of kindness. 

Liek supporting a dear friend, and running for a cause for the Elyse Marcus Foundation, after the loss of her incredible mother.

And, even something as small as sending hats to the Miami Marlins for thier loss of a close team player, to remind them that their community stands by them and that thier angel is always watching over them. 

Its crazy to think that its only been a year and we have accomplished so much. Its so beautiful, and to think it all started with the design of a hat! Something incredible came from the loss of my father and I really want to continue to do this. 

You have all been apart of my journey and have supported me so much I would like to thank you and ask you to please come celebrate this one year with me! Its so important!

This time tickets are only $20 and they get you your first drink for free! This will help fun dour support groups and give back in any way I see fit. 

Help me help others. Be apart of the AWOM Club, and help me carry all of our angels' legacies.

Also, SURPRISE! But ill be djing for an hour of the time. I promise this will be the best dj set list EVER :) 

Finally, there will be some live performers. Cant say who yet. 

This night will be an experience of what we have done this year all in 3-D, so you can feel like you were there for every step, as you have been. 

Love,
