We recently lost a dear colleague and friend, Key Hawkins. This was created for those who have asked how they can contribute. The funds raised here will go toward the cost of her funeral and other unexpected expenses.
While Key had only been at GitHub for a short time, the impact she made in that time is everlasting. Key was light, love, passion, fun, inspirational, and everything right in this world. She made us want to be better humans, and she empowered us by always showering us with positivity and encouragement. Those of us who had any kind of relationship with her inside of GitHub will know exactly what I mean. Just look through your slack messages with her and I’m sure that you’ll find a message from her— on a random Thursday— reminding you how wonderful you are and how grateful she was for your existence, and for being part of GitHub. That was the thing about Key, she always looked for the best in people, and didn’t hold back— she ALWAYS let you know how special you were. She endured hardships, but pushed her way through them, and in the worst of times, you could always count on her for perspective and finding that speck of positivity that everyone else missed.
Thank you for inspiring us, Key ❤️
