There are many ways to fight the injustice of human trafficking. So let's join together and stand for justice - together we can make a difference. Here are a few ideas:
1. Buy a bag
One of the most powerful ways you can help is through purchasing a bag. All profits go directly to organisations working on grassroots initatives in Cambodia. There are a range of stylish designs, all made with colourful recycled rice and seed bags. They are also a great conversation point when out and about!
2. Sign up to our newsletter
Our quarterly e-newsletter provides relevant information on issues related to human trafficking, and how STOPstart is helping to put an end to such a devastating industry. There is also information about current operations, upcoming events/promotional activities, and how to get involved.
3. Tell a friend
Tell your friends about STOPstart, to help raise awareness and support our cause.
4. Organise a fundraiser
Organise a fundraiser at home with a group of friends! This is a great way to learn about human trafficking, and creates an opportunity for your friends to purchase a bag. Email us or let a team member know you are interested, and we will provide a guide for information and activities to help run a successful event or drive: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you know of an event we should be a part of? Are you part of an organisation or group that would be interested to support us? If so, email us and let us know!
