Thanks for dreaming with us and our vision with One Day’s Wages – a movement to end extreme global poverty. We hit a pretty cool milestone yesterday (August 16). Our Facebook Group surpassed 1,000,000 people. Pretty amazing. I’ve never been so excited to be $1,000,000 in debt but I really believe that once we get ODW off the ground, we’ll be able to raise those funds and more.
Here’s a quick video update. Please take 2 minutes to check out some recent news:
So, please mark this date. While the website will be made public before, we’ll be officially launching ODW on October 20. Minhee and I are working really really really hard to honor our pledge of donating our yearly salary by that date and will be asking YOU to join our movement by donating your One Day’s Wages. Your daily salary is only .4% of your yearly salary. Remember, 100% of all donations go to collaborate with orgs that are already doing amazing work on the ground and soon, you’ll be able to choose WHERE you want to invest your one day’s wages.
We are humbled that we’ve already raised over $70,000 . If you want to make a tax-deductible donation, you can calculate your day’s wages and give with 0% fees via Amazon Payments.
And for those that are new to the blog, here’s a primer on One Day’s Wages and an intro video of our vision:
