|The sign says "We build bridges!"|
To get the expertise needed to build the swinging bridge, Foxfire Mountain owner Marc Postlewaite went to Ken Franz of Bridges to Prosperity, a not-for-profit organization that builds bridges throughout the world. The engineers and volunteers from Bridges to Prosperity (BTP) give their time and expertise to help and teach people to build bridges needed to cross their land and allow them access to cities and hospitals. BTP helped Foxfire with plans, staff and direction to get their bridge going and the end result is America's Bridge to Prosperity at Foxfire Mountain. And when BTP needed a place for their first bridge-building conference, they called Foxfire Mountain.

True philanthropic ventures are hard to find but Avery Bang realizes the huge impact that Foxfire Mountain is making on the world. She said, "Foxfire Mountain is so generous... we couldn't have had the conference without them. This event will have a huge impact on people throughout the world thanks to Foxfire".
