Awareness Corporation founder and CEO Mark Tahiliani,
contributes money and volunteer time to the Homeless
Outreach Programs, Inc., throughout the year,
and has been doing so since 1997. Mark Tahiliani
and his family also donate their time to help
the various programs run throughout the year.
The "Homeless Haircut Marathon" and "Kids Helping
Kids" are two of the valuable programs that benefit
from these donations.
Mark Tahiliani and many of his Awareness Corporation
employees help the Central Arizona Shelter Services
(CASS) in the Haircut Marathon held in Downtown
Phoenix. This event helps people living on the
street or in shelters to "clean up" in an effort
to help make them presentable for possible employment
The "Kids Helping Kids" program is another annual
event that Mark Tahiliani and Awareness Corporation
support each year. Maricopa County school children
help raise money to provide toys, socks, and underclothing
to homeless children around Phoenix. Tahiliani
and Awareness match the donations of the children
to help supplement the program.
Awareness Corporation has been involved with
these programs since it moved its headquarters
to Phoenix from Canada in 1996, when the company
nearly doubled the contributions of the children,
providing Christmas for nearly 1,000 kids.
Since July 1995, Mark Tahiliani and Awareness
Corporation have rendered continuous support to
the World Vision Program. Through this organization,
Tahiliani sponsors destitute children in foreign
lands by forwarding donations to various World
Vision branches around the world.
