Attention, Website Whizzes and Facebook Freaks: One Spirit wants you!

Team One Spirit

As an all-volunteer charity, One Spirit is, like Blanche DuBois in Tennessee Williams' classic A Streetcar Named Desire, "always dependent on the kindness of strangers."

Besides the ongoing financial generosity of our supporters, we are also fortunate in the additional voluntary donations of time and specialized skills that help make One Spirit able to serve the urgent needs of the Oglala Lakota from food aid to our many other programs helping the Lakota help themselves while always honoring their unique culture and heritage.

Those of us who work for free are trying to make sure we can meet the needs that are so urgent for the Lakota. We are a diverse group of volunteers, including this writer, who contribute our talents to help further One Spirit's programs.

From time to time, volunteers may have pressing personal requirements or obligations that make it necessary to reduce or end their voluntary work for One Spirit. This is one of those times, particularly in the IT field and the world of social media. We have a pressing need for additional volunteers to help keep One Spirit's electronic communications humming along and expanding to increase our outreach.

We are urgently seeking volunteers who want to enhance their support of One Spirit beyond financial donations to contributing their expertise in website design and operation and to help make our social media presence larger and more effective. We also would deeply appreciate help in broadening our contact lists so we can increase the quantity and diversity of our programs for the Oglala Lakota.

If you have skills in these areas and are willing to donate some time and thought to helping us do an ever-better job of working toward our goals, you are welcome and will be rewarded in knowing you are helping people who desperately need it and will thank you in all sincerity.

Should you be able to help One Spirit in one of these ways, please contact our Director, Jeri Baker, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or call her at 570-460-6567.
