A couple of years ago, I came across some images of homeless Veterans sleeping in the streets in the heart of Winter. I was angered and saddened by their reality. Here were people who had risked their lives with the understanding that their sacrifice could lead to better lives for the rest of us. Now, I don't necessarily believe that any of the wars we fight serve anyone save for a select few. But, these soldiers were led to believe that it was the right thing to do regardless of the politics surrounding their situations. I couldn't help but empathize with the stark physical nature of their existence. I was even more moved by the emotional/spiritual aspect of them spending this time of Thanks and Celebration without family, friends or support. Thus, "Cold Christmas Day" was born. I had been sitting on it for a while but was inspired by some volunteer work a few friends have done and decided to make this a way for me (and hopefully you) to give to those that have given everything. So, in that spirit, I will be donating 50% OF ALL PROCEEDS to a group called Active Heroes. Active Heroes is a fundraising organization that supplies support programs to military veterans in an attempt to end veteran suicides which, at this time, are reaching epidemic levels of 22 deaths per day. Please feel free to give as you are able.

Hawk has emphatically created his own unique sound ... more
