Birthday For a Cause
Make your birthday count!
To help you celebrate your birthday, we want to invite you to join us in making a dramatic and global impact for those living in extreme global poverty. Simply choose to "donate" your birthday and create your birthday for a cause campaign. It's so simple and yet, impactful.
100% of donations (minus credit card fees) go directly to the project of your choosing.
Raise $1000 for your birthday campaign and we'll send you a free t-shirt or ODW water bottle.
* Raise $1000 and we'll mail you a free ODW gift!
Here's how it works:
- Create a birthday campaign page. Several weeks before your birthday, take a few minutes and create a page.
- Walk the talk. Donate your day's wages on your birthday or make another donation to let others know that you're not asking them to do something you're not willing to do.
- Set a fundraising goal. You can choose any goal but don't be afraid to not meet your goal.
- Choose where to give. That's right. You choose! You can donate to the "Giving Fund" which allows the ODW board to make grants to small but thriving NGOs and CBOs in the developing world or you can choose any of our current partners.
- Share and promote your birthday cause. Let your community know via email, facebook, twitter, house parties, and anything else you can think of.
