How do I get sponsors?
Email/post your Everyday Hero link to your family, friends and people you know to help you reach your fundraising goal. We’re also keen to share your pic & page and stories in the lead up to help get the word out via our Facebook page – so please send through content via email.
Is there a #TRAFFICKSTOPPERS ‘uniform’?
Last year was our first ‘run’ as a FMN Team of #TRAFFICKSTOPPERS and we looked pretty bright in our high vis gear! We also had some #TRAFFICKSTOPPER bibs and signage. Maybe we’ll upgrade this year… got any ideas??
Where does the money go?
All money raised from this challenge (by yourself & other #TRAFFICKSTOPPERS via Everyday Hero) will fund FMNs work in India, Nepal and Uganda.

The only way for people to sponsor you is via your Everyday Hero page. Make sure you spread the word far and wide. Copy and paste the link into emails and throughout your social networks. You’ll be surprised by the number of friends and family that want to support your efforts. If you collect any cash donations you can make the Everyday Hero transaction yourself.
