When is 1$day?
Wednesday 25 July 2012.
How can I support 1$day?
GET INVOLVED please by becoming a 1$ Champion, or by making a simple $1 donation before or on Wednesday 25 July 2012.
Why only $1?
The reason we chose $1 is because of it’s inclusiveness. 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. However, some people have said they’d give $10, $100 or $1000. That’s fine. That’s their contibution. But all we ask for is $1.
Where can I get further information?
Please contact Sophie Bartho, CEO, 1$Day Limited on +61 411 191 141 or email email@example.com for further information.
Where does my donation go?
Our mission is to collectively reduce the global inequities in children’s health and education. Save the Children is the principal recipient for our 2012 collection. 1$day is committed to enabling a local Australian project and an international project that demonstrate and measure the impact that their programs have on reducing the global inequities in children’s health and education. We are still reviewing and evaluating the proposed 2012 projects and will announce the specific details as soon as possible.
Is my $1 donation tax-deductible?
The 1$Day Trust is a public ancillary fund endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Item 2. All donations over $2 are tax deductible. If a person or organisation gives more than $2 directly to 1$day, 1$day can provide a receipt. If you are a 1$ Champion collecting on behalf of your community we cannot offer you a personal tax receipt and you cannot claim the benefit of the group donation. 1$ Champions cannot individually issue receipts.
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 $1 to change the lives of millions. To find out more, please go to about us.
What is 1$day?
The one day of the year, when we ask everyone who can, to give $1 for those who can’t.
How does 1$Day Limited finance their company operations?
The 1$day business model is a combination of philanthropic investors, professional pro bono partners, and volunteers. This structure has been specifically created to ensure that as much of the collected community dollars can be distributed to reduce the global inequities in children’s health and education. 1$Day Limited will retain 10% (at most) of funds collected for expansion, with the bold ambition that as we gain global scale we can operate on only 1%.
How can I donate?
What countries are involved?
We launched in Australia in 2011 with international counterparts 1£day and 1€day planning to launch in the next 3-5 years.
How do you select the recipient charity?
1$day is committed to reducing the inequities in children’s health and education, globally and locally. 1$Day Limited has developed a comprehensive Grant Making Principles document, that is available upon request.
