Start Something to End Trafficking: A Practical Guide to Help You Start a Project, Event, Campaign, or Organization by David Trotter

When most people first hear about the horror of human trafficking, they are immediately drawn to take action but are unsure as to what they can do.

Start Something to End Trafficking is a great place to get ideas for that first step.

Before beginning any philanthropic project, people must ask themselves “why?”

“Why do you want to devote so much time and energy to a project?”

Trotter helps you discover whether your “why?” will be more or less helpful in choosing your “what?”…What will you do to help fight human trafficking? What do you specifically want to focus on?

You can choose from:

  • Raising awareness
  • Decreasing demand
  • Preventing human trafficking
  • Aftercare for survivors
  • Researching the issue
  • Starting an organization

Trotter guides you through several soul-searching questions of a discernment process, so you can focus your interests and strengths to best serve others locally and globally.

Once you know your why and what, Trotter walks you through several tried and true projects, such as launching a project, hosting an event, raising money, and starting an organization.

Questions include…

  • Who will you work with?
  • What will motivate people to attend?
  • Why are you raising money?
  • Do you need to actually start an organization to do what you want to do?

Questions like these will help keep you on track, narrowing the best plan of action for you or your group to succeed.

Helpful suggestions, tips, and motivators to help you to make a positive difference in the world are included throughout the book.

If you are not completely convinced you can make a difference when you first open the book, you will be by the time you finish reading it.
