Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

we're celebrating Christmas by candlelight in 2020. as a neighborhood, we have a specific night set aside during the Christmas season to leave all our lights off and join together in the streets for celebration. of course, being December, the sun sets quickly, but with the recent renovations of sustainable energy in the community and the street lights run off of biodeisel fuel from the community garden waste, there's plenty of light to see. there is no gift exchange - we have everything we need, and we decided to pool our money together to provide funds for William Kamkwamba's dream of building a large windmill for every village in Africa - since his large windmill in Malawi was so successful.after the celebration complete with raucous singing of Christmas carols, we'll return to our homes to celebrate as families - using the homemade organic candles provided by one of the local neighborhood businesses.
