COLORADO SPRINGS — CASA of the Pikes Peak Regions is launching a campaign to empower people to make a difference in a child's life.

Starting Wednesday, the organization will launching its #Give5Challenge5 social media campaign for Child Abuse Prevention Month.

It costs $1,200 per year to provide a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer to an abused or neglected child within the child welfare system. At any given time there are about 830 children in the Pikes Peak Region who are in need of one of those volunteers.

The cost to advocate for hundreds of children can seem daunting, but you can make a difference with just $5. Here is how you can help on Facebook or Instagram:

  • FACEBOOK: CASA is challenging community members to follow @casapikespeak on Facebook and donate $5 to CASA’s Facebook Fundraiser. After donating, community members are encouraged to post about their donation using @CASAPikesPeak and #Give5Challenge5, and then tag five of their friends challenging them to also #Give5Challenge5.
  • INSTAGRAM: You can get involved by following CASA on Instagram, donating through the nonprofit’s Instagram profile, and posting in stories to challenge five friends to #Give5Challenge5 for @CASAPikesPeak.
