In my neighborhood saying "Hello" is necessary and a powerful tool
We are two sisters from the Woodlawn community here in Chicago and we have taken to the streets with our “HELLO” campaign. The campaign was born out of our experience of growing up in impoverished neighborhoods in Chicago. We co-own a home in the Woodlawn area of Chicago. We have a strong sense of community and a heart to serve. We are motivated by our own experiences of growing up in a poor community and having struggled with having a mother with a severe mental disability. We are driven to help the community grow into the place of safety, security, growth, and nourishment for the body, minds, and soul. The Purpose of the “Hello” campaign, is to reach out to the community and foster a sense of community awareness and love through “Love, Respect, and Acknowledgement”. We intend to take to the streets of the community and open up a dialogue with those in the community using the power of “HELLO”.
