Get Your Friends Together to Save Children's Lives

Welcome to the Save the Children Make a Difference Campaign where YOUR efforts can help change the lives of children all over the world and in the United States.

The goal of the Make a Difference Campaign is to gather your friends, family and online community to fundraise around themes that inspire you and the people in your life. By generating much-needed donations of as little as $20, $30 or $50, you and volunteers like you can make an enormous difference to Save the Children's life-changing work.

It's easier than ever to reach out. Just choose the contact method you prefer.

Fundraise through Email

Download the pre-written fundraising email we've created for you. The email explains the Make a Difference Campaign, outlines some of the ways donations to Save the Children are used, and offers a link that makes it easy for your friends and family to donate online. You can personalize the email as much as you wish, including adding your personal fundraising goal.

Fundraise by Mail with a Printable Kit

Download Volunteer Instructions and print the toolkit. The kit includes an instruction manual detailing everything you need to know to start your campaign. You'll also find a set of pre-written fundraising letters and your volunteer driver cards that will help you track family and friends who are able to help.

Remember, It Doesn't Take Much to Make a Difference

If 500 Save the Children supporters like you each rallied just 10 $20 contributors, the Make a Difference Campaign would raise $100,000 for children's programs, enabling thousands of children around the world to enjoy the better futures they deserve.
