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)

Father, give us a hunger for your Word. Give us a deep love and joy for the Holy Scriptures. In a culture of so much noise, may we find/create/prioritize both time ad space to hear from You and the Holy Spirit. Remind and convict us that we do not just live by bread alone, or by cable news alone, or by social media feeds alone, or by self-proclaimed experts and prophets alone...but we live and flourish by every word of God. 
Yes, Lord, give us a deep love and joy for your Word. May it marinate and root deep in our lives so that we may be grow more and more into the character and image of Christ.

Lord, may this prayer begin with me. * reflecting back a few months ago in studying God's Word by the Sea of Galilee with friends in the Holy Lands. My Padawan. My son. My youngest. Encouraging him to not just hit the hoop courts but also the books. Minhee and I met these college boys when we first arrived in Seattle in 1997. They were part of our bible study that we led in our apartment for college students. They were also among the group of 7 people that helped start @seattlequest.

Much has changed in the world...but not their friendship and love. Thank you Jin and George. We love and honor you. These are crazy times in our country and larger world but nevertheless, we're going to keep pursuing the things that God has placed upon our hearts. We're pressing forward...doing our part to reflect mercy, compassion, and justice - locally and globally.

Wednesdays are my @onedayswages office day and I especially love the culmination of hard work for our interns, volunteers, 2 full-time staff, and board as we collaborate with our NGO partners. This week, we signed these checks as we granted out over $75,000 to provide better health care for mothers and their families in Mali and Nepal.

THANK YOU for making this possible Your classic play it cool because you're visiting your old stomping grounds at Princeton and pretend you're not cold but in actuality, you're freezing picture. 20 years, 2 weeks, and counting. What a journey with this woman. I love her...and I want to keep growing in love, honor, and respect.
