Join the Fight Against Child Sexual Abuse and Its Traumatic Impacts

Contest Details

In April we launched the #FightForZero campaign and asked our supporters to join our efforts to combat the epidemic of child sexual abuse and its traumatic impacts. More than 500 supporters answered the call by volunteering, donating, and sharing on social media. Each one of your efforts have added up to make a big impact in the fight. But the fight for zero is just getting started.

Join the #FightForZero fundraising contest to continue the fight and help us bring healing and prevention resources to as many survivors, parents, and community members as possible. When you start a fundraiser, you’ll also qualify for a chance to win one of three exciting prizes, including a customizable vacation package for two* donated by SG Travel Two!

* Vacation package is valued at roughly $1,500. Restrictions apply. To learn more about requirements and restrictions, see terms and conditions.

Prize Details

Three amazing prizes are available for the three people who get the highest number of unique donors—not the highest dollar amount—to their fundraiser. SG Travel Two has generously offered to donate the grand prize of a customized vacation package to the individual whose fundraiser generates the most donors between September 14 and October 15, 2021.

The grand prize winner will have the opportunity to choose from three exciting vacation destinations: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The winner will also have the ability to choose their travel dates in 2022.

The top two participants after the grand prize winner will each receive a $300 airline gift card.

Who You’re Helping

1 in 5 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18. Think of the children you know—your little brother, your brand new niece, your son’s best friend, your daughter, your grandson who’s just starting middle school. At least one of these children is likely to be abused before they turn 18. From there, they could go onto struggle with long-lasting traumatic impacts of that abuse. They may develop a mental health disorder, an addiction to drugs or alcohol, or even attempt suicide.

Your fundraiser will play a crucial role in keeping children safe and helping survivors find the help and healing they need. Our founders generously cover our operating costs, which means 100% of the funds you raise will go directly to healing and prevention resources.

  • Paying for donations or incentivizing donors to contribute to your fundraiser.
There is no deadline for creating your fundraiser. However, we do not recommend creating your fundraiser prior to 12:01 a.m. on September 14, 2021, because donations made prior to September 14 will not count toward contest rankings. Only donations made between September 14 and October 15, 2021, will count for this contest.
If someone donates to your fundraiser after 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 15, 2021, their donation will not count toward the contest rankings.

Donors who donate multiple times will not count multiple times toward the final donor count of your fundraiser. This contest is about rewarding the fundraisers with the highest the number of unique donors, not the number of unique donations.
