Review for One Day's Wages, Seattle, WA, USA
One Day's Wages is truly a grass-roots non-profit who seeks to improve the quality of life for those they assist. ODW seeks to empower those communities through programs which provide human services such as fighting hunger and preventable disease, providing healthcare, job skills, clean water, and support services for domestic violence and human trafficking victims.
ODW is one of those non-profits that is also transparent about their funding and I feel is smart about their approach to fundraising. Their "one day's wages" approach is simple and easy. They do not continually ask you for more and more donations as so many other organizations do. Your donation goes 100% (minus credit card transactions fees) to the program you choose. ODW holds a separate fundraiser, their annual gala, to fund operating costs.
Then there are the people. The people I've met at ODW are some of the kindest, caring, and down-to-earth individuals I've ever met. I support ODW with a monthly donation as well as attending their annual gala, and the gym where I work holds workouts to raise funds for their programs as well. ODW's is truly a great non-profit that is passionate about their programs and is smart about they way they implement them.
