Jeremy Lin behind the scenes on game day

by | May 22, 2017

March 17th my favorite NBA player Jeremy Lin donated his game’s wages to ODW’s work empowering girls globally. His generous gift totaling about $140,000 plus $100 for every 3-point shot he made this season will help girls experiencing extreme poverty continue their education. Pretty incredible.

In this new video I had the chance to go behind the scenes at the game, interview fans, and join Jeremy for an exclusive one-on-one interview.


We invite you to join Jeremy by donating to his campaign to empower girls.


Eugene Cho is the Founder and Executive Director at One Day’s Wages. He lives in Seattle, WA with his wife and 3 children.
