Thanks for your support, prayers, encouragement, and patience. Whether we’re ready or not, we’ll be launching One Day’s Wages on October 20 – which happens to be my birthday. Minhee and I are working, saving, and doing all that we can to make our 2009 salary donation on that date and we’ll be asking people to join us by donating their respective one day’s wages. More info and video to come.
But, can you keep all this in prayer? And knowing that people’s personal finances are tight but can you take a step of faith with us and prepare to make that donation as we launch One Day’s Wages?
Here’s three simple updates:
- We’re Hiring. We’re looking for someone to join our small team as our Operations Director [here’s the job posting]. The full-time salary isn’t glamorous but such is the nature of our start-up non-profit. We’re also looking for Interns who are able to volunteer 10+ hours/week. Asides from general “I Will Do Anything” interns, we’re looking for folks with skills in Graphic Design, Web Design/Coding [Drupal is a big Plus], Grant Writing, Accounting/Bookkeeping, Social Media, Event Planning, Fundraising, etc. Resumes and cover letters for both the Operations Director and Intern positions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
- ODW Website. As I shared above, we’ll be ramping it up in the coming weeks. Hopefully, we’ll have the beta version of http://onedayswages.org available by early October. We’re still working on it and testing it out. But early reviews and responses about the website have been very positive. Can’t wait to share it with you as well as the 1,035,000+ people in our Facebook Group. You can see a preview picture of the website here. But you can keep up with our progress via Twitter.
- ODW iPhone app. I don’t even own an iPhone but I’m very excited. One of my blog readers was gracious enough to create this. He’s still working on it but we’re excited to release this as part of the launch of our movement.
