Why I am a Champion for this Cause
My family and I visited White Hawk a little over a year ago and were immediately drawn to the community: its kid-friendliness, the simplicity of the people and the housing, the overarching sense of connection. We felt a strong calling to make this community our home, and were elated to learn that affordability is central to the White Hawk experience: Those with more financial resources help those with less, and everyone pitches in to help everyone else at every turn. From shoveling out walking paths and cars in the winter to spontaneous nights of neighbors watching other households’ kids, giving parents a rare moment to try to get some work done–this place thrives on people working together to achieve common aims, enabling all of us to live a quality, simple life.
I’m honored to now call White Hawk my home, and want terribly to see this unique community effort succeed. I’ve been impressed by the tenacity, intelligence, kindness, humility and fortitude of my neighbors, and am glad that it makes me strive to be a better person. Replacing the culvert over the Buttermilk Creek crossing on our road may seem mundane, but is ultimately a critical step in our growth toward long-term sustainability. I hope that you will join us in this campaign, and thank you for your consideration.
