I decided I wanted to help the people at Pine Ridge but had no idea where to start. One Spirit does a great role of both helping there and organizing people who want to sponsor and/or help in some way. As well as getting the word out about the issues as much as possible. I would definately reccomend them.

After learning my daughter was Native American on her father's side, I started searching the internet to find out more about them when I found info on the Pine Ridge reservation. These people now have a special place in my heart, and have made me decide I want to make their cause my cause. I ran across One Spirit on twitter, and although I don't have much, I'm going to be giving whatever I can and helping to spread the word about One Spirit and Pine Ridge. Hoping to make a better future for people who have suffered so much in the past and today.

I came across Nativeprogress.com or One Spirit through some research on the internet on Native American Indian tribes; that's when I seen a variety of videos on Youtube on the Pine Ridge Reservation. I was able then to see that poverty is rampant in the PRS. My heart when out to the people and I seen that they were in desperate need of help. Thank God that I have the previlege to help Nativeprogress with the needs of the Lokota people. God Bless Nativeprogress in their works towards this great cause.

I have been a donor, sponsor, and volunteer with ONE Spirit for many years. In June of this year I had the honor and privilege of visiting the Pine Ridge Reservation in SD. During my time there, I helped deliver food to folks that had been provided by kind and caring donors and sponsors. I saw first hand how important the food is to families, children and elders. The Lakota are wonderful people who do not deserve to live in third world conditions...right here in the middle of the "land of plenty." Please go to the ONE Spirit web site www.nativeprogress.org to see all the programs and opportunities for donors, sponsors, and volunteers. Become a member of the ONE Spirit family. Give a part of yourself, go without something in order to help. You won't regret it. It will do your heart good.

I met a young man I sponsored for five years. I am very proud of him. The hug he gave me was the most genuine show of appreciation I have ever received from anyone. I saw the tears in the eyes of grandmothers I have grown to know and love. I don't have the ability to help everyone but if everyone would step up and help just a few, we could change the world. We are truly ONE Spirit.

We need more donors who can provide funds for vehicles to deliver food, funds for building essential storage facilities for food, funds for building youth centers to provide young people a place to study. No changes are needed to the basic structure of the organization...just more of the good kind hearted giving people like we have.

It's been rare in my experience of non-profits that you can give money for specific projects, specific areas, specific people even and get feed back on how your donation helps. This is so very important to me.

I've become very disillusioned with organizations such as the Red Cross and
United Way after learning about the yearly salaries of the top people in these organizations. (over a quarter of a million each)

Donations are individually acknowledged by people you can actually communicate with if you have questions.

Also the money goes to Americans, not some group overseas that you never really know how your money is being spent. . . .

If only the U.S. could understand what our own government has done to help destroy this proud people. The poorest place in America!! That should tell you all you need to know. Yes there is poverty in many other places, but this is our own doorstep. One Spirit is the only organization that I know of that works with the entire spectrum of what these people need. If you love your neighbor then there is no better place to show that love. Pine Ridge Rez. needs One Spirit and the programs that they bring. One Spirit needs all of our support to continue to provide this excellent care to our fellow human beings.

Never have I felt better than when I learned that loving is learning to give. One Spirit has helped me to experience this great joy. The world could use a little joy just now.

I think the organization is in pretty good condition. One Spirit needs all of us to know that thinking about a problem is NOT helping with that problem. When we reach out to help then we are begining to understand our role in society.

We have been a One-Spirit sponsor for about 9 months now. Our family is from Wounded Knee and our coordinator (Mavis) was excellent. We know we have made a difference in their lives - but the sponsor family has also changed our lives. The Native American family has given us a perspective we would have never had.

We have supplied food and clothing but the most rewarding gifts were beading supplies and silk-screening supplies which helped them to become more self seficient.

The programs One-Spirit offers and the guidance couldn't be better. I have had the pleasure to have conversations with some of the management in the organization and I can tell you straight-up -the organization is great. Great for those being helped; great for the sponsors.
