AWOM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation founded by Sarah Akiba, 24 year old, entrepreneur, wardrobe stylist and fashion designer from Miami, FL who lost her father to lung cancer in 2013. She started this foundation in order to help fund other nonprofits and unite all people who have lost an "Angel." AWOM, an acronym for Angel Watching Over Me, derived from a social media trend of #angelwatchingoverme where other victims began telling their stories about their "angels." This inspired Sarah to combine her love for fashion and giving back to raise awareness and support the victims and families left behind by a loving friend, family, or any other important person in their life. Not only for those who have lost someone, but AWOM also helps other organizations and foundations and serves as their “ Earth Angel” by donating and volunteering.
Founded in 2011, style saves began with the idea to unite fashion with philanthropy. Combining a talented, diverse community with a shared love for humanitarianism, the organization aimed at inspiring a fresh generation of movers and shakers.
