This is Why We Volunteer!!

This past Saturday, Event Manager, Rob M, led a group of volunteers at the Chicago Public Art Group, a new One Brick non-profit partner.   He got this amazing thank you note from the group, and we just had to share!


CPAG cannot thank you enough for your time and energy this Saturday! Thanks to you, we were able to finally cancel our storage unit rental (something we’ve been talking about for 1 year and half, thus saving us $150 a month), clean out old, unusable tile that has been taking up precious space (a task we have been talking about for 6 months), reorganize our studio space, and start today with a fresh, clean outlook!

But, on top of all those wonderful accomplishments, you guys made us- the small staff of CPAG- feel connected. Often times we can feel isolated and rather alone as we try to get done so, so much. And, thanks to you all, we feel re-energized and re-connected to the world out there.

We appreciated getting to know you, hearing about what else One Brick has done, and learning about all the good you as individuals have accomplished. And for that, and so much more, we wholeheartedly thank you!

Please keep in touch, and we are very excited to work with One Brick and its stupendous volunteers again soon!

Best to the best, and keep up the great work!

Keep It Clean Happy Hour

One Brick’s first happy hour of 2010 is coming up and we’re keeping it clean! 

We’re partnering with to collect travel size hygiene items for ! the homeless, the temporarily displaced, the disadvantaged, and those seeking shelter from abuse… so clean out your closet or the travel-size aisle of Walgreen’s (conveniently located next to Corcoran’s).

$10 donation at the door (or just $5 if you bring at a few items to donate).

Because Bin Donated isn’t affiliated with any single charitable group, they provide donations to whichever organizations have the greatest need for them at any given time. They are focused on finding those charities that can best use our services, and supplying them with the donations they need for the people who depend on them. This allows for more equal goods distribution in and around the city of Chicago.
