One Day’s Wages + Jeremy Lin
We’re excited to announce that ODW is launching a partnership with NBA basketball player Jeremy Lin!
Jeremy has committed to donating “One Game’s Wages” to ODW’s work empowering girls with secondary education and vocational training. In addition, he’ll be donating $100 for every 3-point shot he makes this season.
Join Jeremy and ODW to empower girls with education! Together we can make an impact on girls across the globe.
About Jeremy Lin’s Campaign
“Jeremy here from the Brooklyn Nets. I’m excited to share with you my new campaign with One Day’s Wages.
I believe it’s important to raise awareness about social justice issues that have been swept under the rug. This is why I’m coming alongside One Day’s Wages, a movement to alleviate extreme global poverty, to do my part in raising awareness about the issues many girls face in pursuing their dreams.
Millions of girls across the globe are unable to get the education they need to provide for themselves and their families. This is due to unaffordable school fees, forced child marriage, lack of sanitary products when they reach puberty, and many other barriers. My hope is to shed some light on these issues, and invite you to join me in taking action.”
