We currently have street fundraisers recruiting new supporters on the streets of London and the surrounding area. This is a very effective way for us to spread the message about the life-changing work we do.
Our fundraisers ask people to send a text donation of £2, £3 or £5 to support our work with young people who have been affected by or are in danger of being sexually exploited.
You can support this campaign by texting CHILD to 70123 to give £3. (Note.)
Our fundraisers will be wearing purple jackets, carrying The Children’s Society logo and the slogan 'how can a pencil stop sexual abuse?' They will also wear a lanyard with an information leaflet attached to it.
If you decide to show your support for our campaign and text a donation, our fundraiser will give you a 'magic pencil' and a thank-you pack.
If you have any questions or comments about our fundraisers, please contact our Supporter Care team. You can reach them by email or call 0300 303 7000 from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
We’ve compiled a list of where you can find our fundraisers this week.
* You will be charged your chosen amount, plus one message at your standard network rate. We will receive 100% of your donation, excluding O2 customers where 99% will be received. By using this service, you agree that we may contact you in the future. If you’d rather we didn’t, text OUT to 70123. (Return to text.)
