Fundraising not only supports the mission of the Touch of Life Foundation, it creates a community of caring and promotes awareness about the dangers of child exploitation,trafficking, and labor.

Please contact us about opportunities to volunteer your time and talents at the Bal Ashram working with Ajay, Sumit, Ramesh, Imtiyaz, and many other rescued children.  It will be a life-changing experience.

Help us educate the youth, teens, and adults in your own community about the dangers of child exploitation.

RESTAURANT FUNDRAISERS

Many restaurants will gladly donate a percentage of their sales to a non-profit if you sign up for a fundraiser night.  Tell your friends and families to eat at the restaurant on that night; you can fundraise while dining out with friends and family!

SPORTS TOURNAMENTS

Host a sports tournament such as soccer, basketball, or cricket and proceeds from the registration fees will go towards Touch of Life Foundation.

BAKE SALES

Bake sales and ice cream socials are great ways to raise funds.  Host one at school, a community or sporting event; in front of your local grocery store.  They’re a great way to raise money while educating your customers about child exploitation.

5K RUN/WALKS

5K runs and walks are a great way to stay healthy while raising funds for Touch of Life Foundation.  Your friends, family, and coworkers can either get out there with you or sponsor you and cheer you on!

HOST A PARTY

Having a fundraising goal and having guests donate to help meet that goal while mingling is fun and exciting!
