WLF Spotlight: Sara & James

We are thrilled to share our first ever WLF Volunteer Spotlight!!! In honor of Twiddle’s “Double Down” this August, we wanted to start with a special double dose look at two incredibly selfless and special volunteers Sara Egan & James Yeager ?? Read about Sara and James below!

James Yeager, 25 from NJ. I first heard of twiddle my sophomore year of high school in 2012 and was instantly hooked. My first show was in 2013 at the Catskill Chill Music Festival, and from there I went to see every Twiddle show possible. The energy, people and music had me totally entranced.

After seeing them 30+ times, I was looking to see how I could participate more in this amazing community and was hoping to be able to give back some of the joy Twiddle gives me. Being such an active fan, I had heard of the WLF when it was first formed but it took me over a handful of times asking to help out before I was given the chance. Tumbledown 2018 was my first opportunity to be a WLF volunteer, which was a beyond amazing experience.

Seeing my favorite band, being a part of my favorite community and being able to give back was truly a dream come true ! It’s been almost 3yrs since I’ve started to volunteer and I’ve seen nearly 70 shows and I cannot get enough of being behind that table each time. Making connections, giving back and loving relentlessly is what the WLF is all about.

The charities I look to focus on revolve around environmental issues and sustainability. Our Mother Earth is the greatest asset of them all and we need to be doing our best to keep it safe and healthy, much like ourselves.

Sara Egan, 33, first saw Twiddle in 2007, but it was their Earth Day show in New Hampshire in 2008 when the hook went in deep. Since then she has continued to contribute to our ever growing community by participating in Luvaduck clean ups after shows, fundraisers for White Light Foundation, and officially coming on board with WLF at the 2019 Tumble Down. Sara continues to lead by example, for her two Twidkids (Juniper & Jayden) and the rest of the Twiddle community.

Iroquois Nationals benefit from Apple Valley Park

White Light Foundation and Twiddle would like to acknowledge with respect the Onondaga Nation, firekeepers of the Haudenosaunee, the indigenous peoples on whose ancestral lands we stood at Apple Valley Park in Lafeyette, NY.

We are honored to announce a $2500 donation to Iroquois Nationals to benefit their work with youth lacrosse from Twiddle‘s four night run at Apple Valley Park. Lacrosse is a special game for Mihali and we are pleased to help support the local community in this way.

The Iroquois Nationals mission is to prepare Haudenosaunee and Indigenous youth for international competition, raise awareness of the traditional and cultural aspects of the game of lacrosse, and expose their players to educational opportunities.

Love Relentlessly
