“It is easy to forget how mysterious and mighty stories are. They do their work in silence, invisibly. They work with all the internal materials of the mind and self. They become part of you while changing you. Beware the stories you read or tell; subtly, at night, beneath the waters of consciousness, they are altering your world.” —Ben Okri, Poet

It's time for a new story. Time for a story that puts community at the center, that puts our hope back in our own hands, and that shows us the incredible potential and power of neighbors working side by side to care for each other and the living world. Today, I ask for your contribution to your community. Give generously for great work, good people! —Brad Kik, Crosshatch Co-founder and Co-director
