We all have causes that we care about, problems we want to see erased from society, and issues that have affected us deeply throughout our lives. However, most people are busy and haven’t had the time or opportunity to dedicate as much as they would want to charities and causes of their choice.

Donate A Day’s Wages To Charity Day is there to change that. Whether you have trouble keeping up with charitable donations and you want to make a difference or you believe that you should make a pledge that matters once a year, it’s the day to do it.

History of Donate A Day’s Wages To Charity Day

Donate A Day’s Wages To Charity Day is part of the One Day’s Wages movement, which first started in 2009. The day was created to not only celebrate the many organizations out there that do good, important work for the sake of others, domestically and around the globe. It was also created to remind everyone that they have the power to change the world.

Since One Day’s Wages began, the day has grown as an international movement encouraging everyone to donate a single day’s wages to charity. While, in the span of a year, it isn’t much, it’s much larger than the average donation.

The day has grown to resemble more than that donation, however. It has offered a platform for charities and nonprofits to talk about their causes, to celebrate the transparent, trustworthy charities out there, and to offer volunteers, donors, and partners a community to share their passion forgiving.

Nowadays, Donate A Day’s Wages To Charity continues, carried on not just by the One Day’s Wages movement but by motivated, giving individuals and groups around the world.

How to celebrate Donate A Day’s Wages To Charity Day

As the name suggests, the single best way to celebrate Donate A Day’s Wages to Charity Day is to actually donate a day’s wages to charity. Whether you’re already a pledged member of a charity or you have a cause that you’ve always wanted to give to, now is the perfect time to flood them with support.

If you’re already a celebrant of the One Day’s Wages movement, then it might be time to get even further involved. Many charities and nonprofit organizations will be running events throughout the day and may have a need for extra volunteers.

Whether you simply attend to show your support, or you want to donate some time and help with the event, you can get in touch with the charity of your choice and find out if they have anything organized. If they’re not aware of the day, then this can you chance to tell them and help them boost their profile by getting involved with the social media campaign.

Other organizations, including the One Day’s Wages movement itself, will be sharing all kinds of content online, from displays of giving and events from charities around the world to causes that they’re highlighting. Sharing and getting involved in the conversation online can help to raise even more awareness.
