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)

#19YearsAndGoingStrong Grateful for the life and leadership of Dr. John M. Perkins. There are alot of sprinters in our culture but make sure to also look for those who are persevering in the marathon of justice and reconciliation. When I think of him and others I consider mentors in my life, they're not necessarily flashy or fancy. Rather, I'm reminded that a life faithfully and honestly lived through life's trials and messiness is one's greatest sermon. The best thing a father can do for their kids...is to care well for their mother. It took me awhile to learn this and I'm still learning this. As a leader, I refuse to sacrifice my marriage and kids for the sake of ministry. How can I? Loving my family IS ministry and leadership.

I acknowledge that I'm so privileged with platform, resources, and opportunities - including the opportunity to travel and take vacations like this trip last month. Its not lost on me. I'm so grateful. I want to steward that privilege well - not just for personal or family enjoyment - but also for the sake of others and the building of the Kingdom of God. 
As I pour into others, I'm also learning how important it is to care for oneself; To care for your spouse; To care for your family; To be about the marathon. Preservation not for the sake of self-preservation but for the sake of discipleship and faithfulness.

I used to feel guilty about Sabbath-ing, vacations for my family, being in the outdoors, fishing, and self-care but it's too important  As a lifelong recovering workaholic, I don't want to burn out and I don't want this for others. Flying in and out of Seattle never gets old. One of the most mesmerizing topographies in the country. #windowseat Thank you, Chicago. Put in 10,000 steps. Still one of the best cities to walk. Want to change the world? 
Start with your own heart. Examine yourself. Grow in your faith. Begin in your homes. Love your family. Pour into young people. Engage your friends. Meet your neighbors. Seek the welfare of your city. Empathize and advocate for the hurting and marginalized. And yes, it's very possible that God may stir your heart for the nations; For people, causes, and issues in other countries but till then, start in the here and now. Be faithful. Be present.  With the people, spaces, and places right in front of you. Selah.
