How will my dedication change a life?
STEP 1 :: CREATE YOUR CAMPAIGN
Register here and follow the prompts to create your own page. Explain your heart for As Our Own and why you are raising $500.
STEP 2 :: ASK FOR DONATIONS
Challenge your friends and family to give a donation in honor of your dedication to the race or competition. Tell your family how you are using your talents and skills to fight for the little girls—some as young as 7 or 8 years old—who are being forced into the sex trade. Send your fund-raising page to family via e-mail, post to social networks, talk to colleagues, and spread the word on campus, in church, and throughout your neighborhood.
STEP 3 :: CHANGE A LIFE
Competing for As Our Own means that once rescued, her life is changed. She becomes and irreplaceable member of our family where she can attend English school, learn the piano, and get the lead in the school play . . . where she lives just like a normal kid. Through As Our Own's adoptive-level care, her orphan identity is replaced; she is our very own daughter, for the rest of her life.
