OneBrickers Starting 2010 Right!

 

It was very exciting to see so many OneBrickers come out for our first event of 2010 at the Lincon Park Zoo. As you can see by the smiles, these troopers did not let the cold weather stop them from lending a hand.

Thank you to all that came out. If you were able to, we have some great events coming up that you may be interested in.

Chipping in for LLS

LLS

We had a very special guest for our event with LLS today. Our very own National Executive Director, Clive, joined us from San Francisco to work with OneBrickers as we assembled new patient binders for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Afterwards, many of us reconvined at Dylan’s Bar and Grill for a quick drink while sharing stories of volunteering.

A few pictures have been posted from the event. Please take a moment to flip through them HERE

Lincoln Park Zoo: Trick or Treat at the Spooky Zoo Spectacular!

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your schedule on Saturday to come out to support One Brick and the Lincoln Park Zoo Spooky Zoo Spectacular! We had a great turnout and a really fun after event (thanks, Yari!) – hopefully we’ll see each one of you out at another One Brick event soon! Please let either of us know if you have any questions about the event or One Brick – look out for more fun events on the calendar and also a leadership meet and greet in early December.

All the best, Joanna and Yari

Project Rebuild

Hey Onebrickers;
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.
Thanks,
PS-If you know of anyone interested in helping start Onebrick in Indianapols please have them email me.

City Farm!!!!!

The One Brick crew headed to the Urban Garden at Cabrini Green and helped de-weed planting beds and spread mulch along the cleared pathways. Everyone enjoyed the hands-on event and felt a great sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.

Afterwards, several of us hopped over to Uncle Julio’s for some delicioso Mexican food and refreshing drinks after a hard, but rewarding, day’s work.

-Jeremy, Event Coordinator

It’s a warm and sunny Saturday morning on Chicago’s near north side… it must be a great day to be at City Farm! As you can see from the picture above, we had event another good turnout for our City Farm event where OneBrickers spent their Saturday morning tending to the grounds while also being educated on the benefits of local farming.

This is always a popular event so please be on the look out for it and sign up earlier as this event always fills up quickly. Pictures will be up on the site soon so please stop by for that update.

Cookie Packing At The Night Ministry

I want to give a shout out to everyone who volunteered at Monday night’s cookie packing session at the Night Ministry.  In less than 2 hours, we packed over 11,600 cookies!  We also had a huge group go out afterwards at the Rail on Damen.  $.10 chicken wings on Monday night totally rocked!   It was a great time on Monday night!
