Review for One Day's Wages, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

One Day's Wages (ODW) is a new grassroots movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty. ODW promotes awareness, invites giving, and supports sustainable relief through partnerships, especially with smaller organizations in developing regions.
According to UNICEF, approximately 3 billion people live on less than US $2/day and 1.4 billion people live on less than US $1.25/day - the definition of those living in extreme poverty.
The good news is that, there are already individuals and organizations around the world doing amazing work to alleviate extreme poverty. We're not trying to re-invent the wheel but rather to collaborate and partner with others. In short, ODW is joining them in the fight.
ODW donates 100% of funds (minus credit card costs) to organizations’ specific Sustainable Development projects all over the developing World, with the goal of changing individual lives in the greater context of community. They utilize volunteer staff and interns to engage their donor community, review organizations, and provide administrative assistance, while only employing 2 full-time staff members.
Since November 2008, One Day’s Wages has raised over $1,200,000, and funded 35 partnerships, a lot of it with a relatively young donor base.
The work that One Day’s Wages performs given the size of the organization is remarkable.
