Would you give up one days salary to make the world a better place? That is the premise of charitable organization “ Just One Frickin’ Day” (JOFD) . JOFD’s mission is to select worthy causes and then commit to a small number of projects, only one or two at one time so that the organization can focus their efforts and resources to create real change. The website challenges you to give up one “Frickin” days salary to aid the effort. Despite the catchy name, the site does not require you to donate an entire days salary; you can give as little or as much as you would like.
Currently, their focus is centered on building a solar powered hospital in Burundi. Burundi is one of the poorest countries on earth and most of the country is without any kind of electrical power.

By providing solar powered clinics and hospitals communities can be assured of quality medical care 24 hours a day and receive a greatly increased quality of life.
