LET’S DO THIS
We hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. At ODW, we are incredibly humbled by your support this past year, and we want to invite you to come alongside us to help finish the year out strong.
Your generosity has allowed us to engage in 20 projects in 18 countries this last year alone, and as of today we have raised nearly $5 million to help empower people living in extreme poverty! Thank you for making this movement strong!
While these numbers are important, what matters most are the people around the world that you’re impacting and empowering to rise out of poverty. Whether it’s a mother and her newborn that gained access to better maternal care, a young girl that no longer has to walk miles to gather water, or a young boy that was rescued from a situation of human trafficking — this is our impact.
When you make a tax-deductible end of year donation, you’re helping empower women like Harriet and Esther (pictured to the right) with skills, knowledge, and opportunities they need to lead their families out of poverty. 100% of your gift goes towards empowering people. There are two simple and convenient ways to make your end-of-year tax-deductible donation:
- Online donation that is safe and secure.
- Mail a check (postmarked by 12/31/2016) to: P.O. Box 18071, Seattle, WA 98118.
We hope you have a very happy New Year!
