Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit our page! You may be wondering what One Brick Closer is all about so I will try to be brief yet thorough. We are a small family of five who are saving every extra penny in an attempt to make the dream of owning a home a reality. To achieve this dream we are reaching out to kind hearted individuals just like yourself and asking them to please purchase one brick towards the construction of our home. To achieve our dream we need 18,000 bricks! First your brick will be hand painted with your choice of a name, quote, etc. Next your brick will find its permanent placement in the construction of our home. This colorful brick exterior will serve as a daily reminder of the generosity and kindness of strangers, not only to us, but also to all who visit our home. As bricks are purchased and personalized a picture will be taken of each one and then uploaded to www.onebrickcloser.com to serve as a virtual brick wall during the construction phase of our home. You may be wondering why we aren't asking people to simply donate an actual brick...Well, to be honest, that was our first thought until we realized how much it would cost for someone to ship just one brick! **Special Note** If you happen to be the owner of a brick manufacturing company and would like to donate bricks to us we would love to have them!! We understand that most people are having just as hard of a time financially as we are and that not all who read our page will feel led or be able to help by purchasing a brick. Even if you can't help in a financial way there are three other things you can do to help us that doesn't cost a penny and will be greatly appreciated! First, please add us on Facebook www.facebook.com/onebrickcloser or follow us on Twitter @onebrickcloser. Second, please stop by our website www.onebrickcloser.com/visitors-page and Tweet or Share us with your friends! Third, please leave a positive word of encouragement for the children and I to read on any of the three sites listed above! Thank you again for taking the time to visit our page! We pray God blesses you abundantly each and every day!
