DRESSEMBER: A dress a day to stop sex trafficking, slavery, exploitation
“Today, over 27 million men, women, and children are trapped in slavery. That’s more people than the entire course of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. The mission of Dressember is to put a stop to one of the greatest social injustices of our time. Dressember participants wear dresses every day during the month of December to celebrate the freedom of beauty and femininity that they’re allowed, and to raise awareness and funds on behalf of those who aren’t free to live vibrant, autonomous lives. One hundred percent of the funds raised during Dressember will go directly to International Justice Mission, a human rights organization that has worked tirelessly for over 15 years to bring rescue to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation, and violent oppression. Together, we can make a lasting global impact.”
I will be participating in Dressember, wearing a dress every day for 31 days in December to raise money for International Justice Mission. My friend Jeannie from Alittleaboutalot, encouraged me to join her in efforts to raise money for this incredible cause. If you would like to donate in my name please visit my campaign page. Any amount you can spare will go a long way. I hope more women will join us in Dressember and if you do please hashtag #dressember2013 so we can see your posts! I will be sharing pics on Instagram and a combination of blog posts and videos to share my month in dresses! Check out my video below!
