The Compreh{END} Campaign

“The Comprehend Campaign” is the first post in The Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking’s Compreh{END} Campaign blog series.  The campaign will run from November 29th to December 19th, with regular content available on our blog.

The Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking will launch it’s annual giving campaign on Tuesday, November 29th.  The Compreh{END} Campaign has set a goal of $50,000 that will support 2017 anti-trafficking work in Colorado and beyond.  Supporters can donate or get involved as crowdfunding leaders.  Over 35 crowdfunding captains will power the campaign that kicks off on Giving Tuesday, runs through Colorado Gives Day, and wraps up on December 19th.  

Together, We Can Compreh{END}.

The Compreh{END} campaign is a reflection of LCHT’s general approach to anti-trafficking work: community-led.  Craig Nason, LCHT’s Development and Communications Manager, shared how the concept evolved:  When you design a fundraising campaign that relies heavily on crowdfunding, you’re really empowering your supporters to be champions and ambassadors of the work.  In truth, that approach should always be present.  We’re reminded that LCHT’s work in research, training, education, and the statewide hotline doesn’t advance without public support.


In terms of the campaign name, credit is also due to a key supporter.  Craig explains: “The idea for the name actually came from one of our incredible interns last summer.  The Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking’s work is at the intersection of research and action.  The Compreh{END} name captures that idea perfectly.”
