Hosting your own event in support of Children of the Street is a great way to get you and your network involved in the fight against child/youth sexual exploitation and human trafficking.
From hosting dinners to organizing a concert, the opportunities to support Children of the Street are endless. All you need is an idea, a plan, and the passion to make a difference.
Any amount of money raised, no matter the size, contributes to the work we do.
Events like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, and graduations are ideal occasions to fundraise because friends and family like to mark the occasion by giving. Instead of receiving gifts you don’t really want or need, consider inviting your friends and family to make a donation to us instead. They can give as much or as little as they like, plus they’ll receive a tax receipt for doing so.
Challenges can be physical (a challenging run, hike, climb or swim), brave (a sky dive for example) or rely on your willpower (no coffee for a month).
Take part in an organized run, arrange an office soccer match or plan a dance-a thon. You can fundraise by charging people to participate, or by encouraging them to fundraise themselves.
Raising money and awareness for a program like Children of the Street can be a fulfilling way to honour a loved one, especially if their lives were touched by the type of work that we do.
