I’ve been wanting to share those two words for over a week but I’ve been waiting for a few pictures and some final numbers from the Inaugural One Day’s Wages Gala.
When we planned this event several months ago, I had my doubts if we’d be able to fill the 350 seat venue. Not only did we fill it, we somehow got 370+ through the doors, and after selling out couple days before the event, we had to turn away about 100 more interested people.
Some other amazing stuff:
- Sponsors came in from around the country and covered all our event costs. Wow.
- Guests flew and drove in from New York, Washington DC, Georgia, California, and Oregon. They even came from two foreign countries: Canada and Texas.
- People’s generosity blew us away. You’ll have to click the picture below to see how much folks gave and pledged that night. Amazing.
Thanks again for your trust and believing in the vision. Minhee and I are grateful and humbled by your support and prayers and God’s continual grace over our lives.
In the upcoming year, we hope you’ll consider starting a birthday campaign or partnering in some way. Together, we believe we can make an impact in the fight against extreme poverty.
