The AKR "More, Please" Gift
The AKR "More, Please" Gift
Celebrating and supporting creatives who inspire community

 

Awarded in the memory of Amy Krouse Rosenthal, “More, Please” is a gift presented annually to creatives whose work inspires a sense of community and connectedness.

Because when we convene in meaningful ways — locally, in person, around something that calls to our better selves — we provide a tonic to divisiveness and fear of the other.

DONATE

 

Amy Krouse Rosenthal made so many things. Books, short films, public engagements, interactive art events, unlikely yet profound connections, and smiles in everyone she touched, to name a few.

Perhaps the sum total of all she made is community. Amy brought people together by giving them beautiful, purposeful, meaning-rich things to gather around. The kinds of things that make us want “More, Please.”

Your contribution will help support artists, writers, filmmakers and storytellers who are creating these kinds of experiences.

Just like Amy did.

2018 Recipient: Jason Roberts

Jason Roberts is an artist, civic activist, urban designer and chair of the Better Block Foundation, which helps convert blighted city bocks into lively, walkable, bikeable, and all-around likeable places to be. The project has become an open-sourced international movement, replicated in cities throughout the US and as far flung as Melbourne and Tehran.

Jason has received a Champions of Change award from the US White House, was showcased in the Venice Biennale, and was named one of Planetizen’s Top 100 Most Influential Urbanists. We couldn’t be prouder to honor him as the first-ever recipient of the “More, Please” Gift.
