Did You Know Slavery Is Still A Problem?

But You Can Make a Difference!

Help GiveChange to millions of people by raising money to end slavery.

Here’s a few ideas from other students:

  • Everyone has loose change hanging around—under the sofa cushions, in your car, or in your desk drawer. Collect your loose change to give change!
  • Give your grade. In 7th grade? Ask friends and family to give $7.
  • Host a bake sale or lemonade stand in your neighborhood.
  • Give up sodas for a month and donate what you would have spent to rescue people from slavery.
  • What do you love? Get creative and use your passion to raise funds and end slavery!
  • On your birthday, instead of asking for gifts, donate to help end slavery.
  • Join a race and ask friends to donate $1 for every minute or mile you run.
  • Host a Battle of the Bands concert at your school or church youth group.
  • Turn your school musical into an awareness and fundraising event.
  • Love sports like volleyball or soccer? Host a benefit game. You might also invite teachers or alumni to participate.
  • Ride a bike trail. Raise awareness along the way and ask friends to join you or donate to IJM.
