This past weekend ONE Spirit volunteer and advocate Ed Broken Feather Chandler once again set up to vend on behalf of ONE Spirit in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Billed as 'America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration' the event draws overs 100,000 people for a parade, the Air Force 'Tops in Blue' Band, crafts and food, and more.

This year ONE Spirit's director Jeri Baker and assistant director Diane Capalario were able to attend and visit and, along with Ed, talk with those who came by about the work of ONE Spirit.

Benefit walk for ONE SPIRIT to be held in Howth Ireland on Sat. Nov. 28th 2009

Do you live in or near Dublin Ireland or know someone who does?

Could you spare a few hours to do a sponsored walk for a very good cause. One Spirit Ireland was set up to raise funds for the OS programs that support the Lakota people and allow them to take care of their elders, families, and children.

The 12K walk will begin at the railway station at 11:30am, then the walk will continue along the coast road (the seafront), finishing in Clontarf. The walk should take about 3 hours, if walking a good pace. You may leave your car in Dublin and take the train to Howth, then after the walk, take the train for the couple of stops to Dublin. You may also drive to Howth, walk to Clontarf and then take the train back to your car in Howth.

For more information on the walk or on One Spirit please contact Sue at 087-7768956 or email onespiritireland@gmail.com for more information.

Note from a sponsor -Thanks for SHARE food program

Periodically we get notes from our sponsors that show just how special their experiences with the families the sponsor are. This one came today.
I have been honored to sponsor an elder for the last year with Share...Today, I received a phone call from my elder wishing me a Happy Thanksgiving and thanking me for the Huge Share Thanksgiving box that was sent to her and her family. She was clearly excited and conveyed to me how excited the children were to have turkey AND pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving.

I am so humbled and so moved today. How clearly we take so much for granted. I wish I could buy her the moon.

I wanted to say thank you to Share, all the people who work so tirelessly and diligently to put this program together for all peoples. It is such a huge blessing to both the giver and the receiver. I hope each of you involved in Share know that I, for one, thank you for all your hard work.

Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings everyone.
