I hope this finds you well and at peace.
We are living through a time we could not have anticipated, but one that we have been preparing for all of our lives.
For those of us who have cherished peace and have participated in creating a world of kindness, for those who have always believed in “our better angels” and have hoped for better for all, our moment has come.
Faced with what well may be a definitive change of course for everyone, our communities and our world, this moment is still ours to create. How we will traverse the obstacles before us is still within our reach to choose.
First, I want to thank everyone who has supported the efforts of Echo Valley Hope over the past fifteen years. Your financial support has allowed us to touch many with the possibility of sustainability and peace.
We remain a 501c3 nonprofit, an educational and charitable organization with the capability of reaching people in need. Due to the recent floods that crippled many of the communities in our region, our recent focus has largely been local. Yet we have continued to educate on the matters that impact all people: ending war, ending extreme extraction, support of indigenous rights, and the pursuit of personal peace. This year of the pandemic will require even more of our efforts. Currently, most of our communication is by Internet and social media, and we are hoping to continue broaden our reach.
Locally we are engaged in an effort to support the local farmer’s market and create a cooperative. This is a much-needed effort; to bring good food to people, to help the local economy and to offer the community a space to gather.
We remain 100% volunteer. Our costs are basic and cover our communication efforts. We depend solely on your support to keep going. Your monthly gifts of $5, $10, $25 or more make it possible for us to sustain our work. Your larger one-time donations make it possible for us to extend a bit of support to those in need. You may continue to use this secure website for donations or you can send checks to Echo Valley Hope, E14604 County Rd. F, Ontario, WI 54651.
This is a thank you for your kindness and a request to please continue. It is the small drops that make the river flow.
Please take care of yourself and those near you. My sincere gratitude for all that you do. May clarity and peace prevail. Be well.
President of Echo Valley Hope
