1. Express yourself through art
All of our partnering aftercare programs around the world use art therapy to help survivors heal. Art is a powerful way to express emotion about things you think about and care about at any age. So on December 3rd, grab your friends and get creative! Spread awareness for the cause with sidewalk chalk, paint posters, or try writing a poem. You may be surprised at how much you enjoy expressing yourself through art. Creativity builds confidence!
(And stay tuned to see what we are releasing in collaboration with survivors on Giving Tuesday, it may just have to do with this theme! Text NOTFORSALE to 51555 to receive text updates.)
2. “I’m an Abolitionist Because…”
Have you seen these printable signs on our website?
Print a few of these off for your friends and family, grab a marker to fill them out, and take a group picture! Posting the reasons why you are an Abolitionist can help others want to join the movement with you.
3. Spread hope and light through stories and social media
Kick off the 2019 season of giving by spreading hope and light on social media. Many of the stories on our blog are about young survivors who have overcome hardship and found joy in little things. We encourage you to find a story that resonates with you and share it with your friends on Giving Tuesday! Check out the “Aftercare” section on our blog to get started!
4. Hold a local fundraiser
Whether you are part of a Students Against Slavery club at your school, or just want to get your neighborhood involved, there are many easy ways to help raise funds for the cause! Here are some ideas:
