What do I put on my fundraising page?
TITLE: Include your first name, e.g., Sarah’s Drive for Dragonfly Fundraiser. That will help people find your page!
PHOTO: Include a photo of your face (maybe including your tattoo!).
DESCRIPTION: Write a sentence or two about why you’re doing Drive for Dragonfly and/or why taking action to combat human trafficking is important to you!
EXTENDED DESCRIPTION: Optional. People will see this in addition to your description when they view your campaign page. If you have more to say about human trafficking, why you’re passionate about the cause, etc., you can write as much or as little as you want here.
PERSONAL PROFILE: You can skip this part, if you want. It doesn’t show up publicly when people see your campaign page.

NOTE REGARDING TEMPORARY TATTOOS!
Our temporary tattoos are delayed in arriving. We’re hoping they’ll arrive the first full week of December and we’ll send them as soon as we receive them! Never fear! Here are some ideas for your social media posts until they arrive!
1. Write #DriveForDragonfly or #AFutureOfFreedom on your arm or hand.
2. Hold a sign that says Drive for Dragonfly or A Future of Freedom or something related (Maddie’s sign lists the names of people in Survivor Stories —names changed, of course!)
3. Share one of the pre-made social media posts in the content library below (available December 1).
4. Print the temporary tattoo design and hold it as a sign. (Click on the image to download!)

HOW TO USE TEMPORARY TATTOOS!
We will send your tattoos close to December 1st! You can start your campaign even if you don’t have your tattoos yet!
Clean and dry skin. Peel back the plastic cover. Stick the tattoo to your hand, arm, etc. Cover tattoo with a wet washcloth or paper towel. Hold firmly in place about 60 seconds. Gently remove the washcloth and paper backing. Voila!
TO HELP IT LAST:
Make sure your skin is clean and dry when you apply. Avoid scrubbing the area with soap and water. Avoid applying lotion or oils on the area. Periodically sprinkle baby powder, corn starch, or talcum powder over the area to absorb natural oils in skin.
Apply coconut oil, baby oil, eye makeup remover. Rub gently with a washcloth and warm water.

- Melissa said she would dye her hair purple if she raised $1000…and it worked! She had purple hair for Christmas!
How to tell others about Drive for Dragonfly
Some participants are nervous or aren’t of what to say when people ask about their campaign or tattoo! We’ve got you covered with some example explanations:
Talking about your fundraiser for Dragonfly:
This month I’m raising money for The Dragonfly Home, a nonprofit in OKC that serves survivors of human trafficking through their crisis center. The Dragonfly Home works with each survivor individually to help them get back on their feet by helping with things like specialized case management, counseling, food and clothing, and whatever else they need.
If someone asks why you’re wearing a tattoo:
We’re wearing these tattoos because traffickers sometimes brand their victims by forcing a tattoo of a barcode, number, or some other symbol to demonstrate control over a person. We’re wearing these tattoos that say “A Future of Freedom” to say that exploiting people is not ok and you can’t put a price tag on a person’s life.
Talking about human trafficking:
Human trafficking is when people are bought and sold for sex or labor. Victims do not have a choice – they are enslaved by their traffickers. Human trafficking happens to Americans and it happens right here in our state and our town.
When discussing these things, remind people about your fundraiser:
If you’d be interested in learning more or donating, I have a fundraising page for the month of December! Would you like me to send you the link?
