If you are thinking about making a donation before the end of the year, we encourage you to consider making that gift on Giving Tuesday, 11/27, through our Facebook page. On Giving Tuesday, Facebook is going to match the first $7 million in donations that are made to nonprofit organizations through their Facebook pages. Beginning at 8AM (EST), on 11/27, any donations made through AO’s Facebook page will be matched in full until Facebook reaches its goal of $7 million.

This is a great opportunity to make your gift to Advocating Opportunity go even further!

We hope that you will consider how important your support is to survivors of human trafficking and will act on this opportunity to have your gift to Advocating Opportunity doubled by visiting our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/advocatingopportunity/ and supporting us on Giving Tuesday.
