Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio, used the NCAA college basketball tournament as a way to call for donations to a charity that fights against human trafficking.

The former Republican presidential candidate posted a video on his Twitter account with him making his NCAA picks.

The video invites people to donate $5 to the charity and to join a bracket pool with Kasich, Kasich's site read.

The money in the pool will go to Polaris, an organization that fights human trafficking.

Kasich chooses Virginia, Villanova, Gonzaga, and Michigan State as his choices to make the final four in the tournament.

The bracket must be completed by noon Thursday, the day the tournament starts.

A bipartisan bill in the House of Representatives has taken aim at sex trafficking. The bill would set websites that allow the ads to be prosecuted and would allow victims to take legal action against them, The Hill reported.
