Who is behind this?
There are many different organizations, individuals, ministries, bloggers and companies who are getting together to make the 2 Dollar Day Challenge happen. We feel the more people who are involved, the better. So, if you want to help out, if you want to become a part of making the 2 Dollar Day Challenge a reality, just send us an email with your logo and a link to your website.

For me, (Levi Benkert) I recently spent the night on the streets of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and was shocked to find that– despite having lived here for the past two and a half years working with orphans and beginning a new orphan care project (Bring Love In) I really had no idea how horrible life is for so many caught-up in the cycle of poverty.
When a friend, Jerry Shannon, who also lives here with his family and runs a ministry (Embracing Hope Ethiopia) emailed with the idea for this challenge, I was thrilled.
And so the 2 Dollar Day Challenge was born.
But, the challenge is not about us. It’s not about attracting attention for any one purpose or mission. It’s about the poor, the needy, and the rest of us coming to a place where we experience other’s pain—even for a short season—and then turn that energy toward seeking solutions.
We hope you will join us, take the challenge yourself, and tell everyone you know!
