As most everyone should know by this point, (if you follow our Facebook or twitter account you have been seeing posts about this for months now) 1 Day Ranch is preparing for a HUGE event this September. The New York Says Thank You Foundation and Jewish Disaster Response Corps have teamed up for the 9/11 Anniversary National Day of Service and are coming to Bethel Acres, Oklahoma to help rebuild 1 Day Ranch September 4th through the 7th! This is going to be a incredible event that we are so honored to be a part of. There are hundreds of volunteers from all over the United States, including New York City firefighters, police officers, and first responders that were in 9/11, coming to commemorate the 9/11 tragedy in a POSITIVE way! Everyone is invited and encouraged to come out and be a part of this event. (Seriously. Everyone.) It doesn’t matter your abilities or skill level, even if you cant participate in any manual labor at all, we still want everyone to come out and make this event do exactly what it is intended to do: Which is… 1-Bring the entire community together to do something that will impact us all on a greater level. 2-Help to commemorate this anniversary in a way that shows the true spirit of America. If you want to read more about this event and the people coming to Oklahoma for it please check out the links above or you can read the entire press release HERE.
There are tons of people who have contacted asking how they can be involved and how they can help with this event. If you would like to participate PLEASE go to the NYSTY sign up page and register. This is very important because it helps us with planning on exactly what needs to be done and when. Again, it doesnt matter your skill level for this! We just want to know who to expect!

***We do have a specific skilled volunteer project that we desperately need to find some volunteers for. If you or someone you know has skills in building or construction WE NEED YOU. Specifically we are in search of a few skilled volunteers with building/construction experience that would be willing to come out and help the NYSTY “Pre-Build” crews starting August 27th. These volunteers are incredibly important because there is a lot of work that needs to be done before the Big Build Weekend and the Pre-build crew really needs some help! Please contact the NYSTY Project Coordinator Denny at Denny@NewYorkSaysThankYou.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to volunteer even a few hours of your time to this very important project!***
We are beyond excited about this event and cant wait to share this weekend with the whole community! The new barn is being delivered in a “kit” form and it was just confirmed that it is going to be delivered ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!! (Eeeee!!!) dirt work is already in progress, concrete work begins August 1st… Things are all starting to come together and its a busy busy time for us!
Again, I hope to see everyone there, and we cant begin to thank everyone enough for your continued support.
Love and light to you all,
1DR Founder/Operations Manager.
