About Us

Where and How We Began:
In 1996, the loving dad of a four year old Alexia and a two year old Tyler, Steve Viglione found himself doing something for a career he liked, yet knew it was not his “soul’s purpose or passion.”  Within this year, a vision came through him to write a book for children that would unite kids and parents together through reading. 

The energy and excitement behind the sales of the book drove Steve to rethink his career path and do what he loved: writing books for children. As time went on, Steve received so much joy from meeting parents and children and “gifting” them a book that in 1998 he decided to start a non-profit company to gift books to children and adults worldwide. The vision he received was; in addition to giving his own books away, he would also help other authors give their books away to the world.

The name “The I AM Foundation” was chosen because I AM is an affirmation that helps us to validate, value, respect, love and accept our own being as real, alive and worthy. When we totally embody this, we can then value, respect, love and accept others. This is an essential step in the process of peace in the world. Whatever we say after the words I AM can have immeasurable impact on our lives. So we teach kids to state something positive after the words I AM so their lives are positive and successful. We also honor every individual. When we recognize that we are really at “one” with each other we can finally relax and let go of the “us vs. them” mentality, which creates illusions and disharmony in the world. Peace has to start within us. To stand for something and be against nothing is to truly feel what peace is all about.
