Make an Impact - Donate a Day’s Wages to Charity Day

Make an Impact - Donate a Day’s Wages to Charity Day

Each year, on the second Wednesday of May, we celebrate Donate a Day's Wages to Charity Day. We've been doing so ever since 2003, and May 9 is this year's date for celebrating this special day.

The best thing is that everybody can get involved. How?

Well, Donate a Day’s Wages to Charity Day is exactly what the name suggests. All you have to do to get involved is donate the wage you make in a day to a charity cause chosen by you.

It doesn't matter how much you make - every cent can make a big difference for someone who needs help now. 

Another way to show your support is to take part in organized activities to raise money and awareness. You can also volunteer at a local charity or offer your knowledge and time.

Even if this day has a serious message, we can still have a bit of fun. After all, helping others makes us feel good.

What charity are you most fond of? Personally, I lean towards charities that support and help animals: pets, strays, wildlife; you name it.

So, will you be a part of this day? 




This is such an amazing and thoughful gesture to do. Children’s hospital and saint jude are very close to my heart, and it’s where we always donate to. It’s amazing to know how many people are donating as well!


What an amazing and thoughtful thing to do! I am sure this is making an impact! It’s always so important to give back.

This is a very nice idea. I didn’t know this day exists. Good to know!



I never knew there was a day for this which is really cool. Our family donates our time to helping charities since we are not financially able to help with donations.

That’s so great you are getting people to donate to a good cause. I think it’s important. And giving does make a difference in the lives of people for sure. Always great to help out in some tangible way.
