At 18 months, you can start weaning your toddler off the pacifier by restricting the pacifier to bedtime. Make sure your toddler knows that the pacifier is only for the crib, and if she really wants it, she can go lie in her bed. Eventually, she will start to ask for the paci less and less, and she will lose interest. Then start talking to her about how she is getting to be a big girl and soon she will not need it anymore.
Then sometime before your daughter's second birthday, you can have a special pacifier party to celebrate. Tell her that her pacifier needs to go to babies who need it. And as a token of their appreciation, the babies sent her a present! Of course, get your daughter something she really wants!
