Eugene is the co-founder (along with his wife) and visionary of One Day’s Wages – “a new movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty.”
The strategy of ODW is to create a collaborative movement via integrating Human Relationships, Social Media/Technology, and the Power of Story. ODW promotes awareness, invites simple giving (one day’s wages) and supports sustainable relief through partnerships, especially with smaller organizations in developing regions. Since its launch in October 2009 ODW has been featured in the New York Times (twice), The Seattle Times, NPR and numerous other media outlets
Eugene is also the founder and Lead Pastor of Quest Church – an urban, multi-cultural and multi-generational church in Seattle, Washington as well as founder and Executive Director of the Q Café – an innovative non-profit community café and music venue.
Eugene and Minhee have been married for over fifteen years and have three children. Together, they live happily ever after in Seattle, Washington. More of Eugene’s story can be found on his blog and you can also follow him via his Facebook page or Twitter.
