Whether you are a newcomer, visitor, retiree or come from a long line of Outer Bankers, you are still one of a kind. Listen to the stories about how this group began or why this event happens every year. It usually is because one person with an idea had the courage, patience, and energy to get it started. One person stepped forward, and ten others joined them and said ‘we can do that’. That is why on the Outer Banks, we have a community kitchen, week-end food for kids, literacy tutors, parades, marathons, surfers for autism, watchers for turtle nests and more.
I encourage you to fall in love with the spirit of giving and caring you find on the Outer Banks. Join in that spirit. CommonGood exists to provide connections between spirit, people and possibilities. Please use the CommonGood website, newsletter, facebook, calendar and list of volunteer opportunities to find how you can make a ‘one of a kind’ difference.
