One Day’s Wages, a grassroots movement, is hosting its first ever benefit party in the greater Los Angeles area. The organization, which aims to alleviate extreme global poverty, promotes awareness, invites simple giving and supports sustainable relief. By inspiring people around the world to donate one day’s wages, ODW has raised over $600,000 in the past 1.5 years. The funds are donated to small organizations that are already fighting extreme poverty around the world.
One Day’s Wages and its founder, Eugene Cho, invite you to join them in Santa Monica, CA on Thursday, May 5, for a benefit featuring live music, complimentary appetizers and a brief message. There is no entrance fee, but donations are welcome. All funds will go directly to support ODW and its mission.

Readers! What are you planning on doing this weekend?
We know that you guys are spread out all over the country, but we just wanted to give some of you a few fun ideas for the weekend!
The Center for Asian Pacific American Students and student organizers at the Claremont Colleges are hosting One Beat for Japan, a relief benefit showcase. The outdoor event will feature local talent, including America’s Best Dance Crew’s Beat Freaks and Paul Dateh, to raise money for the disaster relief. The showcase is TONIGHT (Thursday, April 14th) at Pitzer College. The event is open to the public, with a suggested minimum donation of $5. Check out more information here.
Toebang in Koreatown, Los Angeles, is hosting a “Seng-mak Day” today (Thursday, April 14th)! All bottles of Seng makgeolli, a type of rice wine (which is apparently healthy for you!), will be only $5.99!
In addition to today’s special, you can also take advantage of the Happy Hour Special, from 5pm-8pm, which gives you 50 percent off food. The staff checked the place out yesterday and we all loved the cheese corn and the cheese ddukbokki (what can we say – we like cheese), and it was a great place to watch the game – not enough people to make you feel claustrophobic, but enough of a crowd to reassure you you’re in the right place.
The Center for Pacific Asian Family is hosting two events this month, in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The first event is a FREE verbal and physical self-defense workshop at USC’s El Centro Chicano Lecture Hall, this Friday, April 15th, from 2pm to 4:30pm.The next event, language interpretation training for work with domestic violence and sexual assault victims isn’t until next week, April 23, but is definitely something worth checking out! To register for the training, download the Nondirect Services Volunteer Application here.
We’re so excited about this week’s giveaway! We’ve always been a huge supporter of Kollaboration and we’re so proud of how much they’ve grown and expanded – they’re now in 12 cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, New York City, Tulsa, San Francisco, and now, for the first time ever, Boston!
Boston is a truly unique city, in that it’s filled with talented young students and professionals from all around the world, so we’re not surprised that Kollaboration has finally settled in Boston. The event will be the first city-wide Asian American talent show competition featuring all kinds of performing artists, including vocalists, musicians, dancers and instrumentalists.
More impressive is the fact that the show was produced entirely by students and young professionals – there are a total of 34 team members representing 14 different schools in this one event.
