Just wanted to send out a quick thank you to everyone and acknowledge all of you for taking time out of your Saturday to help our neighbors in need. Usually this comes from Kinga, your event manager, but I wanted to thank everyone too.
Kinga and I started working on this project with One Brick back in Oct. of 2008. Kinga has been amazing in being there for almost every trip to NW Indiana. I think the only one she missed was due to her taking a vacation (Slacker). I want thank her for all her efforts in keeping this project going for One Brick.
It’s been a while since my last Onebrick event and it was really refreshing to get back and do some dirty work for those in need. I think the best part of our project was the hug I got from the homeowner. This event brought back some of the inspiration I received from my trip with Onebrick to New Orleans to rebuild houses.
Which, by the way, Onebrick will be returning in Dec and next year. I know some of you might of thought we weren’t able to get that much done but alot of time it’s just the little bit goes a long way in letting our neighbors know that we care and we haven’t forgot about them.
That same feeling is reminiscent of New Orleans being it was the 4 year anniversary of Katrina. Kinga and I have pledged to lead a group back to New Orleans either in Dec. or 2010 and I’m hoping some of you can join us. If any of you have questions about the Onebrick NOLA trip feel free to email Kinga or I. Sorry we weren’t able to meet up with the rest of the group afterwards, but we really wanted to finish the job. Hope everyone is having a great day and hope to see you at some Onebrick events.
