Not even A cold winter night cant stop OneBrickers

Yeah it was cold and there was snow and ice!!! But that didn’t stop any of these brave and dedicated OneBrickers from taking an evening to put together packages of books for women incarcerated.

76 packages in all were carefully selected and packaged to be sent out to women all across the country! Thank you again for making a difference with One Brick Chicago!

A True Inspiration for Us

This is Carlo Garcia…and he is a true example of the word INSPIRATION!

When reading this story today, we just knew that we had to do whatever we could to share this man’s story with as many people as possible. Carlo’s story may seem simple and not that big of a deal to some but think of the impact if more made the sacrifice he has done.

Not going to go too much into the story here because nothing we could write can truly do the article written on Yahoo justice. Please take a moment to read Carlo’s story (CLICK HERE) and if you feel inspired like we do…pass it on! There more people that buy into this way of thinking the better.

Thank you Carlo….for making a diffrence

Holiday Goodness Achieved!!

Last night was One Brick’s Annual Holiday Happy Hour and needless to say it was a rousing success!! Many came out in their sweaters and holiday garb to make it a special night. Take a look at the picture above to see all the donations dropped off at the party by amazing OneBrickers! This show of support both to One Brick and those we look to serve is what makes the hours and effort put in worth while.
