Fundraise for Hope

About Place of Hope’s Champions for Children

Champions for Children candidates across South Florida compete to raise the most funds in honor of a local foster youth who have been victims to child abuse, neglect, homelessness, exploitation and human trafficking. Every dollar raised helps provide hope for the hopeless, a home for the homeless and healing for the hurting. These candidates are encouraged to use their talents, contacts and creativity to raise funds to help advance Place of Hope’s mission of “placing hope in the life of a child.” Each participant will receive their own personal fundraising link where friends, family and colleagues can make a donation.
