When is One Dollar Day?
Thursday 24 October 2013.
How can I support One Dollar Day?
Why only $1?
The reason Save the Children is only asking for $1 is because it is inclusive and affordable. It’s almost impossible for anyone living in a developed country to say no to this micro donation. One dollar represents one person – it’s about standing up and being counted by your $1. If people would like to give more, that’s great and Save the Children welcomes every dollar. But all they ask for is $1 from every person.
Where can I get further information?
Please contact Sophie Bartho, General Manager, One Dollar Day & Fundraising Relationships, Save the Children Australia on +61 411 191 141 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Where does my donation go?
Every dollar is dedicated to reducing the global inequities in children’s health and education through Save the Children’s local and global projects.
In 2011, our collective fundraising built a village health clinic in Laos serving more than 5,000 children with essential life saving health care. In 2012, our collective fundraising built water and sanitation facilities in a school in Ethiopia for 600 students and 18 teachers, and provided Aboriginal school attendance support for 78 children from four communities in Darwin, Australia.
In 2013, everyone’s fundraising is dedicated to educating children.
2013 Local Project
Your collection is dedicated to early childhood education for disadvantaged children in Australia, giving them a solid and positive foundation for their ongoing education. Save the Children work in communities where children face multiple hardships due to poor access to services and poverty.
2013 Global Project
Your collection will support children who have fled to Lebanon and Jordan to escape the conflict in Syria. Save the Children is conducting a massive ‘Back to School’ program for these young people, providing a safe, stable and positive learning environment in the refugee camps and host communities.
It is amazing what Save the Children can do with $1.
Is my $1 donation tax-deductible?
All donations over $2 are tax deductible. If a person or organisation gives more than $2 directly to www.onedollarday.org, Save the Children can provide a receipt.
Who are we?
We are a group of like-minded people from various industries, backgrounds and experiences. We believe in the power of the collective, and the potential for $1 to change the lives of millions. To find out more, please go to ABOUT US.
What is One Dollar Day?
One Dollar Day is when Save the Children asks everyone to give just $1, on just one day.
How much of my donation will reach the projects?
Eighty percent of the funds raised will go directly to the projects. Save the Children will use the other 20 percent to grow the campaign so we can support more projects next year. The One Dollar Day campaign has been supported by a team of like minded businesses, our partners, all contributing their time and expertise (TV production, advertising, printing etc) to make sure as much of the donated dollar reaches the Save the Children projects.
How can I donate?
What countries are involved?
One Dollar Day launched in Australia in 2011. Our international counterparts, One Pound Day (1£day) and One Euro Day (1€day), are planning to launch in the coming years. Imagine the potential of this simple idea!
