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

Rating: 5 stars  

I first heard of One Day's Wages when I was a college student, and was excited that they partner with local leaders to empower change regarding multiple justice issues from the ground, up. My junior year in college I hosted a ODW "Birthday for a Cause," and it was incredible way for me to invite my friends and family to donate to a cause I cared about (I believe I specifically chose an education-related fund.) Later on, the church I'm a part of began partnering with ODW for their annual "Christmas Party for a Cause," auctioning off items donated by local businesses, and church members to raise fund's for ODW's Refugee Relief partnerships. In both my personal, and broader experience with ODW, I was amazed with the organization's transparency (re: funds, their partner orgs, and actual impact), and with how personable and helpful the staff were. So much, that I recently decided to volunteer regularly with ODW! Since being able to see how things work on the back-end of this non-profit, I'm increasingly impressed by the integrity and respect that the ODW staff team embodies. I look forward to continuing to learn from, and grow with this incredible organization.
