The Polaroid Party is organized by a group named Team Awesome (@TeamAwsm). A collection of creative, forward-thinking organizations, businesses, communities within Metro Vancouver working together to create a ridiculously awesome experience for the larger community to connect with new networks of people to send kids to school in Ethiopia and India.
