Drive for Dragonfly
Your one-stop place for everything you need to know about Drive for Dragonfly! We’re glad you’re here! Check out our welcome video, which is also summarized in the information below.
What Is Drive for Dragonfly?
The Drive for Dragonfly was initiated by a college student in 2017 who wanted to help victim-survivors of human trafficking in Oklahoma City in a practical way. The first year, participants created fundraising pages for The Dragonfly Home, shared them on social media, and raised over $7500 in one month!
Last year, the group grew and raised over $17,000 just during December!
How Does It Help Human Trafficking Victim-Survivors?
These funds help Dragonfly provide what human trafficking victim-survivors need to heal and build a new life after human trafficking! This can include providing access to medical care, counseling, emergency shelter, legal assistance, and anything else they need!
Drive for Dragonfly also increases awareness of human trafficking! Participant can share information (provided by The Dragonfly Home) about human trafficking on social media. They also wear temporary tattoos, which always spark conversations in real life, too!

Why Temporary Tattoos?
Traffickers often use “branding” as a way to gain control over a victim and indicate “ownership” of that person. Branding can often be a tattoo or carving on a victim of something like the trafficker’s name, a gang symbol, or even a bar code. It’s also a way to put a price tag on a person’s life, treating them like a product instead of a human being.
At Dragonfly, we stand against the idea that human beings are for sale. That’s why we’re taking tattoos back! Our temporary tattoos for Drive for Dragonfly declare that everyone deserves “A Future of Freedom.” Tattoos are first come, first served. But if we run out, you CAN still participate!!
