Leslie Hawke- An Amazing Human Being

A few days ago I introduced you to a wonderful friend of mine in Romania. Well today I'd like you meet another friend of mine who I admire so very much: Leslie Hawke, mother of the actor Ethan Hawke, who started working as a Peace Corps volunteer in Romania several years ago. But she didn't stop there, no, she went on to do many more amazing things, specifically aimed towards aiding the Roma in Romania. Please read about The Alex Fund and if you can, give a little (or a lot). This would not be a waste of your money. I promise.

Wow, interesting that both Ethan's mom & Uma's dad are such humanitarians. I guess creativity and outspoken-ness are inherited traits.

I haven't heard about Uma's dad- but I'm going now to do some searching!

Not to refrain from the more important things, but... does this mean that you know ETHAN HAWKE?! :O ;)
