1. Choose to raise money for human trafficking victims

Plenty of sponsored events go on throughout the year where you are encouraged to choose who you will be raising money for. Choose to help those you are supporting and working to eliminate human trafficking – you can donate straight to RENATE or find many other worthwhile human trafficking projects to help – many are listed on our website.

 

2. If you don’t ask…

Don’t be afraid to ask everyone you can think of for sponsorship. The worst they can say is “no”! The personal approach often works best, so talk to people or email them individually. And don’t jkust tell them what you’re doing, tell them why.

 

3. Spread the word

Why not give a talk about your event in your church, school or workplace? Or write an article for your parish newspaper? Or put up a poster ? Your local press may also be interested.

 

4. Get connected

The internet is a great way to get publicity. You could write a blog about the run-up to your event, or promote it on facebook or twitter. One simple way to raise awareness is to add a signature to the bottom of your emails giving the details.

 

5. Double your money

Ask your employer if they have a matched giving scheme. They could make a big difference by doubling the money you raise. If they don’t have one, ask why not!

 

6. A picture tells a thousand words

Make sure there’s someone to take photos on the day. These are vital for getting press coverage and donations after your event, and they could be hugely inspiring to other people. Don’t forget to email your photos to RENATE too.

Warning: This form is out of date. Please update using the [seamless-donations] shortcode. The shortcode is the chunk of text on your WordPress page that generates the donation form. If you're getting this message, it means you updated from a very out-of-date plugin and need to change your page to replace [dgx-donate] with [seamless-donations]. See this video for more details.

On the 18th of October, all over Europe we ask your attention to Human Trafficking.

We, RENATE, ask you to remember the victims of this inhumane crime.

RENATE: Religious in Europe Networking Against Trafficking and Exploitation

Vision: All people are created in the image of God. We, the religious of Europe, believe in a world where everyone has a right to human dignity. Human dignity cannot be compromised. Therefore we labour to free the world from trafficking and exploitation.

Goal: To respond to the issue of the trafficking of women, children and men in the light of Gospel values.

Objectives:

  • To develop awareness-raising activities against human trafficking and the growing demand within all levels of society in Europe, using all forms of modern technology and communications.
  • To network, share resources, skills and knowledge.
  • To research and implement actions against the growing demand for such abuse in the countries of origin and destination.
