upcoming EVENTS & DATES
Fairtrade fortnight 3-16 augUST 2018
Each year across Australia, Fairtrade Fortnight provides an opportunity for families, schools, businesses and community groups to show their support for farmers and producers in developing countries to be treated fairly and receive living wages for their work. Why not use this opportunity to host an event, ensure use of fairtrade products, and use the opportunity to ask your friends to donate to The Freedom Project? You can also use this time for advocacy and demand fair trade or ethically sourced products from your favourite cafes and restaurants.
Freecember FUNDRAISING - December 2018
Commit to an individual or group challenge and get your friends and family to sponsor you to raise funds for The Freedom Project. You can be as creative as you like - from running a marathon, to sleeping on the floor every night throughout December, to attempting the longest wheelbarrow race around a field - the options are endless!
Do it all in the name of bringing freedom and ending slavery!
Every $40 you raise can provide schooling for a child for a month.
Every $100 you raise can provide restoration for a trafficking survivor.
Your help and partnership brings freedom - one life at a time.
