One Day’s Wages (ODW) is a grassroots movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty. ODW promotes awareness, invites simple giving, and supports sustainable relief through partnerships, especially with smaller organizations in developing regions. We work on issues such as clean water, human trafficking, health and education, disaster relief and more.
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.
