DRESSEMBER

DRESSEMBER IS A COLLABORATIVE MOVEMENT LEVERAGING FASHION AND CREATIVITY TO RESTORE DIGNITY TO ALL WOMEN. DRESSEMBER USES FASHION TO ADVOCATE FOR WOMEN WHO'VE BEEN EXPLOITED. AS WOMEN TAKE ON THE CREATIVE CHALLENGE OF WEARING A DRESS FOR THE 31 DAYS OF DECEMBER, THEY ARE ADVOCATING FOR THE INHERENT DIGNITY OF ALL WOMEN. THE DRESSEMBER FOUNDATION EXISTS TO INSPIRE AND EMPOWER A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF LIKE-MINDED WOMEN WHO ARE LOCKING ARMS TO FACE ONE OF THE GREATEST INJUSTICES OF OUR TIME.THE HEART OF DRESSEMBER IS FREEDOM-- THAT EVERY WOMAN HAS THE RIGHT TO LIVE A VIBRANT AND AUTONOMOUS LIFE.
Dressember is giving 85% of proceeds to International Justice Mission and A-21, human rights organizations that work to rescue victims of slavery, sexual exploitation, and other forms of violent oppression. Those who participate in the 2016 Dressember campaign are supporting the abolition of modern day slavery. And this is exactly why I am participating along with my #inspiringsimplicity teammates-- I long to see the day when people are no longer exploited for their body and vulnerabilities-- a day where we can all walk in true FREEDOM.

  1. I absolutely love this post. My friend Jo Beth Dodds was doing the same thing of wearing dresses throughout December. I always love reading your blogs and your sister RENEE blog. It's amazing how God uses people in many different ways.
