Helpful Tips

  • Start strong! Research shows that people are more likely to donate to a campaign that already has donations. Kick off your fundraiser by making the first donation!
  • We will be posting content throughout the day - share our posts with your followers to get them excited about our mission!
  • Below is a great blurb to use in your fundraiser description:
Friends, this #GivingTuesday I'm raising funds for The Exodus Road, a nonprofit that specializes in finding and freeing victims of human trafficking. Your contribution, whether you choose to donate $5 or $500, will make a significant impact on the lives of others living in slavery. Please help me in providing a life of freedom to the millions that are enslaved today. Thank you for supporting a cause I care deeply about!
