Finding Momentum During A Global Giving Movement
Welcome to the Momentum Campaign! On an election year, you might be a little bit tired of the word “campaign”. We promise that this is an effort you can still get excited about. After all, today is #GivingTuesday. It’s expected that more than 2.5 million charitable gifts totaling more than $300 million will be made in support of important causes around the world! Did you know that in the United States alone, more than 70% of people support mission-based organizations they care about with a financial donation? Solving the social issues of our time is work that is truly powered by the generosity of people. Put another way: The global giving movement is powered by a local response.
How You Can Increase Momentum to End Human Trafficking
Today, we want to invite you to be part of our community-based response to human trafficking. The Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking is a leader in Colorado’s anti-trafficking movement. Since 2005, we have trained over 27,000 professionals and community members; conducted research to drive action and inform policy change; operated the statewide 24/7 human trafficking hotline; and developed over 140 future human rights leaders. We’re proud to have received a Gold Seal of Transparency from Guidestar, and to be named a “Top Nonprofit to Support on Giving Tuesday” by GreatNonprofits this year!
This year’s Momentum Campaign is being supported by over 35 volunteer fundraisers who are helping us reach for our $100,000 giving goal! Over the next three weeks, we’ll be sharing more about how your support is going to have an impact in 2019 through the blog and across our other social channels. Ultimately, this is your opportunity to invest in a local response to a global issue you care about! Curious how your gift can make a real difference?
#GivingTuesday is not a day to simply recognize that many global injustices still persist. It is a day to celebrate the power of our individual and collective philanthropy, and its potential to change the narrative. We give our hard-earned money to support causes we care about, organizations that inspire us, and approaches we believe in. Today we have the opportunity to advance a better world. So join us and make your #GivingTuesday gift! Let’s increase the momentum to end human trafficking…together.
