One Day's Wages in the New York Times

One Day’s Wages is in the New York Times today in an article entitled New Fame for the Everyday Donor (or click the photo from the NY Times article above). Needless to say, the entire ODW team is excited about the great support and press coverage we’ve received recently including another article in the Seattle Times last week.

But really, I’m humbled by the grace that God has shown me, my family, our ministry, and now the work we’re doing through One Day’s Wages.

The movement begins with you as you choose to invest your one day’s wages. Then another and then another. Can you imagine if 10,000 people gave their one day’s wages each year for the next 40 years? How about 100,000 people? You choose where to invest your donation and 100% (minus transaction costs) go to the specific projects you choose.

Can you sense that this can really grow to be a movement?

Help us spread the word via your blogs, twitter, facebook, etc. In case you haven’t seen our intro video:

Thanks so much for your support, prayers, and encouragement. We can’t do this without you. Please help spread the movement. It takes a few clicks.

  1. Create an account on our website.
  2. Make a donation. Calculate your day’s wages or give another amount.
  3. Be a fan on Facebook and share the Page on your profile.
  4. Share our story: parties, blogs, email, facebook, twitter, etc.
  5. Be creative: ____________.  Like the Harvard professor.

** This might be a great time to plug the kind folks that helped design and create that beautiful shirt:

Both of these folks above (wife/husband combo) do great work. And our logo was designed by Justin Pae (no professional website).

T-shirts are $15 (pickup) and $20 (mailed). They’ll soon be available on our website for purchase or you can also swing by our office in Fremont, Seattle (address on the website)

Nakuru National Park, Kenya. Not your average neighborhood zoo. #flamingoes Kenya. Asante sana. Bwana asifiwe. So grateful for God's grace and provision. It's emotional and humbling every time we sign a check to award another grant. This is ONLY possible because of all of our generous donors and supporters.

This 19,932.90 grant is for a partnership with CREATE! ... that will train and empower 250 Sengalese women to produce and sell poultry, start their own businesses, etc.

Thank you and let's keep going!!! Share our stories. Share your day's wages. Or start your own birthday campaign.

ONEDAYSWAGES.ORG Seattle. Right now. That is all. Today is the last day of my 3 month sabbatical. That went by so fast... On the first day, our family went to Santa, Cruz, California. The first thing we did after we arrived at the San Jose airport was to go straight to In-N-Out. If these kids grow up and feel like they need counseling because their Dad didn't show them love, I'm gonna show them this picture as well and say, "I'VE GOT PROOF. I TOOK YOU TO THE BEST BURGER JOINT WITH NICE CHRISTIAN VERSES UNDER THE DRINK CUP." Seattle. Home, sweet home. And home of the Super Bowl champions.
