Who is ODW?


Who is One Day's Wages?

In a phrase:

a grassroots movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty. 

We promote awareness, invite simple giving, and support sustainable relief through partnerships, especially with smaller organizations in developing regions.

One Day’s Wages is you, me, us, them: giving, dreaming, and working together to end extreme global poverty. Join the movement.

Our vision...

is to aid global issues of injustice affecting millions of people, regardless of race, culture, sex, age, or religion.

We hope to inspire people around the world to donate their one day's wages, and then to renew that pledge monthly, quarterly or yearly–or to start campaigns with a cause by donating their birthday, one day of work, or numerous other ideas--to the cause of alleviating extreme global poverty.

In short, we invest in people and communities, and we seek to inspire people to see themselves as everyday philanthropists.

Together We Can...

Though the average person’s day’s wages won’t change the world, it can have an impact. Join the movement and be a part of the solution--together!
