Work For a Cause
Work one day to empower those living in extreme poverty.
We are so blessed in so many ways. One of those blessings is that many of us have jobs and thus, the ability to provide for ourselves and our loved ones.
We want to invite you to work one day - not for yourself - but for those living in extreme poverty. In addition, start a work for a cause campaign, ask your employer to match your donation, and mobilize your community to support your campaign. You can make a dramatic and global impact and in doing so, create opportunities for others.
100% of donations (minus credit card costs) go directly to the projects of your choosing.
Here's how it works:
- Pick a day where you "work for a cause."
- Walk the talk. Donate your day's wages on your work campaign and let others know that you're not asking them to do something you're not willing to do.
- Matching. Ask your employer if they'd be willing to match your donation. ODW is already listed with numerous companies.
- 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 work campaign cause. Let your community know via email, facebook, twitter, house parties, and anything else you can think of.
