it’s not just a unicorn. it’s a movement.

Any unicorn lovers amongst my blog readers?

Several weeks ago, we launched our holiday campaign called One Less Gift. It’s a simple invitation – that in lieu of some of the random (or mindful) gifts we give to our friends and family- to instead, make a donation in their name and send them one of our comical e-cards and make a donation in their name.

One of the e-cards pokes fun at the unicorn.

I had no idea how popular the unicorns were in our larger pop culture. Advocates, unicorn lovers, groupies, and believers of the unicorn came out of nowhere to defend the magic of the unicorn.

Want evidence?

Unicorn advocates on Twitter:

A real unicorn coffee cup.

I also received this unicorn coffee mug as a gift (with clean water in it). The amazing thing: She actually owned and used it regularly. It’s a beauty and now become my daily coffee mug.

And how about this beauty?

My friends over at MiiR Bottles made this exclusive Unicorn 800ml water bottle. It’s a one of a kind collector’s item and I’m hoping some Unicorn Lover that’s reading this blog might be willing to pay $500 for it.

Isn’t it beautiful? Any takers?

Truly amazing.

It’s not just a unicorn. It’s a movement.

Okay, that’s another shot at the “It’s not just a tree. It’s a movement” nonsense. But seriously, if you’re looking to send someone a fun and meaningful gift during the last few hours before Christmas, consider sending them an E-Card that fights poverty. Here’s how it works:

  • Visit the site and pick one of the One Less Gift e-cards
  • You choose an amount you want to donate in someone’s name.
  • Insert their name, email and send them an e-card.

100% of your donation (minus credit card fees) go to empower those living in extreme poverty.

    Gave this to all the volunteers in our youth group. First time I’ve given a gift like this, and it was a big hit! God bless.

One Day’s Wages

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. Great to catch up with @jlin7 in Brooklyn at the Nets game. Grateful for his partnership with @onedayswages to support our Girls' Empowerment Fund. The season hasn't been what he hoped for with major injuries...but we can't wait to see you back on the court soon and do what you do. Stay encouraged, brother. Thanks for your faithful witness for Christ.
