Core Supporters power the ODW movement

by | Nov 6, 2017

ODW is a grassroots movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty. We are captivated by the idea that everyday people can impact the world.

Since our inception in 2009, we’ve raised over $6 million dollars and collaborated in 125 partnerships and counting.

Because of your support, thousands of lives have been impacted. To our estimation, over 560,000 people around the world have benefited and been empowered by the work of ODW. Together, we are literally saving lives. Real human people – just like you.

During a recent trip to Thailand to visit some of our partnerships, I had a chance to visit an urban youth center funded by ODW in Chiang Rai, Thailand, through our partnership with The Freedom Story. Prior to the launch of this youth center, about 50% of students were dropping out of school which put them at risk of many dangers including being trafficked in the sex industry – often to the notorious red light district of faraway Bangkok. As a result of this center, they’ve seen the drop out rate reduced to just 10%. Your support is providing girls like 12-year-old Mew a safe place to go after school. Through art programs, Mew now has a creative outlet. Opportunities like these help prevent the trafficking of children.

But there’s still so much work to be done.

We live in a world today where real human beings are caught in sex trafficking and forced labor, children are unable to go to school, communities don’t have access to clean water, refugees are fleeing war and violence, and the list goes on.

ODW Core Supporters

Did you know that when someone makes a donation, 100% of donations go directly to our projects and partnerships? We remain committed to this model, but this is where Core Supporters can come in.

By becoming a Core Supporter you are powering our work from the ground up. You can start a monthly gift to our operations of at least $25, which will enable our team to keep growing, vet reliable partners, invest in sustainable projects with proven impact, and track every dollar to make sure it’s used wisely, all while reporting back to you how lives are being transformed.

This year, we’ll have granted $1.3 million dollars to numerous partnerships impacting over 60,000 people! But we can’t do this work alone. We need you. Join us. One Day’s Wages is you, me, us, and them – all working together for a more just and beautiful world.

You can become an ODW Core Supporter by starting a monthly gift of at least $25 a month HERE.
