OneBrickers Starting 2010 Right!

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


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.
PS-If you know of anyone interested in helping start Onebrick in Indianapols please have them email me.
