One more sleep till Dressember! Over the last few weeks I have had a few people asking me the question “What is Dressember?” I am so glad you asked!
I think it is easiest to sum up what Dressember is by this (hopefully) simple equation…
Me + a dress = me wearing a dress (which raises awareness for Dressember) which = (equals) donations made by lovely people such as yourself, which then = FREEDOM to many people who are trapped in modern day slavery.
Simply put I am choosing alongside some friends and hundreds of others around the world to wear only dresses for the month of December to raise awareness about modern day slavery. This campaign is so much bigger than just wearing dresses for a month, it is my hope that by wearing a dress (something I certainly don’t wear everyday) I will raise awareness of the work that organisations like A21 and International Justice Mission are doing to free people who are in slavery. Our team has set a goal of raising $5000 collectively. Through the donations of generous people like yourself we can offer much needed finances to these organisations that stand against injustice and strive to enable all humans to experience the basic right of freedom and restoration.
If you would like to read more about what modern day slavery looks like or find out more about why I am participating then please follow this link back to my previous blog post called A Little Dress.
If you would like to donate to our team here is the link for you to do that. Every little bit counts 🙂 It is very exciting to know that over the last 3 years people participating in Dressember have raised over 1.5 million to end human trafficking. This year they hope to raise $1,500,000 it is not even December yet and $90,059 has already been raised. I look forward to giving you an update on this rapidly growing total over the next few weeks.
Thank you for joining us in supporting this worthwhile and highly important cause.
