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?

I have to admit this isn’t something I have heard of before but what a great idea! I am sure that days wage could really make a big difference as well if everyone came together and did the same thing.

What a great idea about charity giving. My family likes to choose different places every year to give too.

What an inspiring cause! I admire that you once a year celebrate give up your wage a day to a charity of your choice – this is definitely something I would want to be involved with!
