can you spare 3 minutes?

Thanks for reading my blog and for your support in so many various ways. It has been a huge blessing in my life. Thank you.

As some of you know, my family and I recently started a non-profit organization called One Day’s Wages. In short, ODW aspires to be a grassroots movement dedicated to ending extreme global poverty. We want to inspire people to simply donate one day’s wages (equivalent to about 0.4% of one’s annual salary) to the fight against extreme global poverty and to renew that investment – monthly, quarterly, and at the least, yearly (on their birthdays).

The compelling aspect of ODW is that 100% of your donations (minus transaction costs) go to projects on the ground YOU CHOOSE to fight extreme global poverty. While we may not be able to fix the world, our investments can help change the life of a child, a mother, a father, a family, and even a village.

Even if you are unable to give or choose to donate later, you can help us immensely by simply taking 3 minutes and registering/creating a profile on our website. This is an encouragement to us because it shows that you support our cause and movement.

Thanks again and feel free to forward this on…

With gratitude,
Eugene & Minhee Cho (Founders of One Day’s Wages)

PS: Check out our current partnerships:

  1. Clean Sanitation & Water Well for an entire Ethiopian school (charity: water)
  2. 250 Fresh Start Kits for Congolese women
  3. Border Outpost between Nepal/India to support girls caught in human trafficking.

One Day’s Wages

The secret to being grateful is no secret. You choose to be grateful. Then you do it again and again. Every day. If you forget, start again. Back to fishing...I mean, umm...back to writing a book. There's no such thing as a self-made person. Someone believed, encouraged, and invested in you. Be grateful and be that someone for others.

Taking a break from the sabbatical...to partner in ministry in Denver at Cherry Hills Church and at the CRU staff conference. It was such a gift to be able to encourage a handful of folks one-to-one, a small group of Asian-American leaders from EPIC, and the larger group of 5000 staff during one of the sessions.

I've been personally blessed, challenged, encouraged, exhorted, and convicted by so many who have poured into my life - friends, acquaintances, and even strangers - and I hope to do that for others as I seek to be faithful to Christ.

Thank you, Lord.
#cru17 Nothing grows by itself. If something matters to us, may we be intentional about growing it.

Invest. Pray. Plant. Water. Nurture. Repeat. God sees and knows us. In fact, God knows everything about us.

Not just the good we try so hard to project but even the mess we often seek to hide.

Let this soak in: Not only are we fully known but in Christ, we are fully pursued and loved.

This is grace.
Amazing grace. Hairstyles change. Sideburn fads come and go but may our commitment to love, honor, respect, and be on mission together for Christ never waver.

Thank you, Minhee. I love you so much even if you made fun of my hairstyle and sideburns.
