Pledge your birthday to Polaris
When your birthday is near, we’ll remind you to start a fundraising page and ask your friends to donate to support victims of human trafficking for your big day. We’ll use the money you raise to fund Polaris and the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline. We’ll share impact updates and you’ll be able to see the difference you made in the lives of human trafficking victims and survivors.
To start a fundraiser on the Polaris website, go to our fundraising website to create a fundraising campaign right here on polarisproject.org. Name your campaign, set a fundraising goal, and explain why you’re raising money for Polaris. From your Dashboard, you’ll be able to customize your campaign, track your progress, and share it with friends and family.
