Elections in Pakistan are an expensive game, and the wealthy and powerful often control the outcome through their financial might. While we may not have the same amount of money, we’re confident that our People-Driven Political Campaign can outmatch them in spirit, coordination, and dedication. However, to sustain this energy and make our campaign a reality, we still need to raise significant funds and we can't do this alone. We need the support of those within Pakistan, the diaspora and beyond.
The diaspora in particular plays an essential role in this endeavor as they not only provide critical financial support, but also a unique perspective and connection to both cultural roots and adopted communities. Their support will not only aid us in reaching our fundraising goal, but also serve as a symbol of unity and solidarity in our mission to bring change to Pakistan’s political landscape.
Here are a few ways you can help:
Donate – Every penny counts. Your contributions will go directly towards funding our campaign and making a difference. It provides us with hope that we are not alone.

Support a fundraiser event – We are planning on organizing fundraising concerts and events in various cities across the United States in the first half of March. If you want to be involved with the planning, execution, and promotion of these events please get in touch with Shan Khan (details provided above).
Reach out to your network – If you have contacts who may be interested in supporting our campaign, we can work together to reach out to them. Personal outreach goes a long way in securing support. If you can help us with introduction and share contact information, we would be more than happy to have someone from the team in Lahore call your contacts directly to explain our mission and objectives.
Call-A-Thon – Join us for a call-a-thon on Zoom where we can all come together and call down our personal contact list to ask for donations. Working together will make this uncomfortable job feel a little better, and we can be a source of motivation for each other. We are fixing dates for call-a-thons that work for everyone. If you want to join please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Campus or community events – You can help us raise awareness about our campaign by hosting a conversation or lecture at a college campus, mosque, or community event. We can even coordinate on getting a speaker from the organization to the event, or even have Dr. Ammar Jan join remotely. To organize an event contact: email@example.com
Social media – Help spread the word about our campaign by sharing our posts and updates on social media. We are active on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and TikTok
Volunteer – If you’re passionate about the cause and want to help in other ways, we would love to have you on our team. Fill out the JOIN US form on our website to learn more.
