Everyone has a birthday but not everyone has something to celebrate. Instead of presents for your next birthday, ask for donations that will change a girl's life!
How will my birthday change her life?
STEP 1 :: CREATE YOUR BIRTHDAY 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 for your birthday.
STEP 2 :: ASK FOR DONATIONS
Ask your friends and family to give a donation to help girls in India. Tell your family how you are using your birthday to fight for the little girls—some as young as 7 or 8 years old—who are being forced into the sex trade. Ask for donations 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
Giving your birthday means that once rescued, her life is changed. She becomes an 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.
As Our Own rescues girls from certain exploitation and enslavement, adopting them into their family. For life. Read more about our Rescue, Aftercare, and Prevention efforts in India.
