I have been a One Spirit sponsor for over 2 years now. My partner and I sponsor a family which is headed by a woman who has taken in several grandchildren and foster grandchildren. There are between 12 to 13 people living together in a small house outside of Pine Ridge Reservation. I forgot - as of April there are 13 - 14 since a new granddaughter was added to the family. My partner and I participate in the food program each month and pay for fresh food to be delivered to our family through One Spirit. It feels wonderful to be able to make this small contribution. I only wish I were wealthy and could provide so much more. still it is such a great feeling to work through ONE SPIRIT and to give to people who have so little. Through this group I actually KNOW where my donation is going. I talk with my family and have received notes and pictures and perhaps one day will be able to visit. My money is NOT put into a big pot of donations, it actually is used for MY family.
