Did You Know?
God created us to work. Work gives us dignity, value and purpose. Yet today, more people than ever are not working and 1 out of 7 of us are living below the poverty line in the U.S. (that’s more than ever before!).
What Does This Mean to Me?
A lack of work leads to devastating consequences for everyone – more poverty, homelessness, crime, domestic violence, divorce, debt, depression, and even suicide.
What Can I Do to Help?
Join a movement of people across the country who want to love their neighbors by giving them what they really need…the dignity of work.
Pick a day of work and adopt it as your Day for Dignity. Set a fundraising goal (for every $250 given, a life is transformed). Then, you and those you invite give up that day’s pay (or a portion of it) to help people in need learn and experience the dignity of work.
Where Does the Money Go?
100% of the money you raise goes to equip churches and community ministries across the country to teach men and women God’s design for work and help them find and keep meaningful employment. To learn more about Jobs for Life’s work, click here JobsForLife.org
$250 ensures a man or woman learns and experiences the dignity of work.
One day’s pay is just 0.4% of your annual salary, but it will transform lives for generations to come.
“I believe in what Jobs for Life stands for and what they do, and I think it is a precious jewel that the world should know about it. So, I really wanted to give back to the organization in a bigger way, while simultaneously informing my network of friends and family about their good work. The Day of Dignity was the perfect tool to do just that. After my day of dignity was over, I was very proud to see that I was able to exceed my goal by 45%. Now, it is my desire to set a higher goal for my Day of Dignity in 2012.” — LaToya King
“Our Day for Dignity was August 3rd, and it was a great way to start a conversation with our friends about the problem of poverty and how we can care for those in need of dignity. We were so encouraged to not only see enough money raised to impact 10 lives, but also at how it opened up discussions with our children. They now make the connection of just how much the value of a job provides for the physical and emotional needs of a person. In addition, every person who participated with us now has a greater understanding of the dignity of work and its power to transform.” — Scott Dixon
