We are currently working on the image errors and broken links that may around since the introduction of our new website. We appreciate your patience as we work on getting this all cleaned up as fast as possible.
One Brick elves have been busy lately, and we are excited to launch our new website!!! Things won’t look very different at first. We have tried to keep the same basic functionality that everyone knows, but this new/fresh implementation will provide a platform for future enhancements.
IMPORTANT: One small change you will notice immediately is the creation of user accounts. We now require an email/password to register for events. In future this will allow us to implement lots of new functionality such as waitlisting, personalized maps and the ability to remove yourself from an event roster.
Note: If you have volunteered with us before and wish to create a password, simply CLICK HERE and enter the email address you use with One Brick. You will be sent an email with a link to create your One Brick password.
If you find any issues, PLEASE let us know by sending an email to email@example.com.
After almost five years, Amy Sheren has stepped down as the Chicago chapter’s Chapter Director. Amy has been instrumental in One Brick Chicago’s growth, and her leadership will be missed. But no worries, Chicago, Amy will still be volunteering and managing events (like tomorrow’s Booze ‘n Blankets)… So let’s raise a glass to Miss Amy! Cheers!
Let’s also raise a glass to the new chapter leaders for Chicago: Jason Waugh (firstname.lastname@example.org), Chapter Director; Meghan Stegemann (email@example.com); Angela Perkins (firstname.lastname@example.org); and Joanna Evans (JoannaE@onebrick.org).
One Brick has kicked off its 2009 Annual Campaign. You count on us throughout the year to deliver the best possible volunteer experience. Chicago non-profits count on us to help bring enthusiastic volunteers to help their causes. Now we are asking if we can count on you to help keep us running strong.
Here are a few ways you can help support One Brick during our Annual Campaign:
1. Make a donation easily and securely on our website: https://app.etapestry.com/hosted/OneBrick/OnlineDonation.html
2. Send us a check to: One Brick, 237 Kearny St., #209, San Francisco, CA 94108
3. Ask your employer to make a matching donation. They may also match your volunteer hours! The info you may need for this is here: http://www.onebrick.org/downloads/InformationSheet.pdf
4. Ask your friends, family, colleagues to support you and One Brick by making a donation in your name using any of the above methods
As always, thanks for your support!
Please take a moment to stop by the One Brick Chicago page on YELP and provide us with your feedback on your experiences with One Brick. Once you’ve completed your review, pass it on to your friends so they may do the same. We are looking to make One Brick the best volunteer experience in Chicago!
Special thanks to the Wendy’s in Munster, Indiana and their district manger, Rod, for arranging free lunch for our volunteers who have been working flood relief in the area.
On behalf of all the volunteers…THANK YOU!!
The Washington Post recently featured the DC Chapter of One Brick in an article that focused on the possible benefits for singles while volunteering for One Brick. It is a very nice article and we are appreciative of The Washington Post’s support of One Brick.
