This is what some of our donors and volunteers are saying about One Spirit:
MStoops, Volunteer 03/23/2017
I found One Spirit while specifically looking for a non-profit organization that did work with the Lakota tribe in South Dakota. I am skeptical of non-profit organizations that ask you to send them money and trust entirely that it is going to the people you intend on helping. I was immediately impressed by the fact that One Spirit has programs that allow donors to connect, and contribute, directly to families-in-need on the Pine Ridge Reservation. I called One Spirit and was able to speak directly with the founder, Jeri Baker. Fast-forward to four years later and I have been able to get directly involved with several One Spirit programs like their support for a group of youth runners from Pine Ridge who attended the NY City Marathon. I have been working for several years now on the Charging Buffalo project that is working to help build a meat processing plant on the reservation that will allow the tribe to process meat that is harvested from their buffalo herd. This facility will provide jobs and help the Lakota people take a step towards food independence. One Spirit is truly an organization that will allow you to be as involved as you want to be in their projects. I am truly happy to contribute my time and money to this organization.

I have been a sponsor with ONE Spirit for over 4 years. I sponsor an elder and the grandkids she is raising. I speak to her directly often, and find out what she and the kids need. With other charities, you send in your money but never get to find out who or how it's helping. This direct approach shows me how I'm making a positive difference in a needy family's lives. I feel blessed to be able to help this family. I highly recommend ONE Spirit! Mrs. Peterson

I Love ONE Spirit because I have the option to get as close as I want to be or as distant Without the Pressure of Phone Calls and Mailins every 2 Weeks!!! They have List where I can actually see a Family and their needs, and recently chose an elder on dialysis that needed clothes & an elec fry pan. I felt Connected. I'm sending her a Fresh Food Box every Month to help with her diet and Empty Pantry. I have randomly sent $ for Bring Back The Buffalo, wood Project and Elder Christmas Party. I could have stopped at. $5 donation but I believe in tithing 10% of my Income and some months I can really help. ONE Spirit is NEVER Pushy like other Organizations and that's why I can give with my ❤️

I participated in the One Spirit Okini list. They quickly answered my many questions and concerns. I helped a family with school supplies and some clothing. I later got a Thank You note from the family. I was really happy and will definitely help as much as I can.
