Update! Thank you for supporting this worthy cause!
From the Dressember team…
Thank you for your advocacy!
In just a couple months, you raised nearly A MILLION AND A HALF DOLLARS! That. is. incredible. That’s enough to fund 233 rescue operations! There’s no way we could have made such a huge impact without you!
Our final amount raised was $1,472,078, and we owe every dollar to your amazing advocacy. Thank you for joining this movement, and proving that every single person can make a positive difference in the fight against injustice. We are so proud of you, and so honored to be a part of this community of freedom fighters!
The Dressember Team
As my mother tells it, when I was a preschooler, I insisted on wearing a dress every day. Preferably one with a sash, some lace and a major “twirl factor.”
Well, I’m going to do it again!
“End modern slavery by wearing a dress.”
I’m committing to wearing a dress every day in December to promote and advocate for DRESSEMBER. I’m also asking my friends and family to donate for my 39th birthday on November 29th and into December. My goal is $390.
Here is my fundraising page: click here.
I heard about this from my friend Brittany, a Compassionate Entrepreneur with Trades of Hope. Visit her site here. I saw on Instagram that she ordered a Dressember dress and was committed to the “dress every day in December” challenge and the more I looked into it, the more excited I got!
Where do the proceeds go?
85% of the proceeds go to International Justice Mission, a global organization that protects the poor from violence in the developing world.
THAT is a mission I can stand behind.
You can also SHOP in the Dressember Marketplace by clicking here. Their dresses are…
“Designed with purpose to provide meaningful employment for women rescued from sex trafficking. It was made in Nepal, one of the least developed countries in the world, which ranks high for trafficking. This design creates a bright future for the overcomer who made it.”
The company behind it is Elegantees.
From their website:
“Sex trafficking is enslaving a human against their will to perform sexual favors while someone else makes money from it. Elegantees has joined the fight against this by helping provide a new life for those brought out of it. Our mission statement is to provide hope to survivors of sex trafficking in Nepal. A positive source of income that reinforces independence, a healthy self-image, and confidence restores lives one elegant tee at a time.“
Isn’t that amazing??
Here’s the Dressember dress I purchased!
Check it out here.
I needed a navy dress and I love that it supports such a phenomenal organization.
This is my birthday gift from me, to ME!
I plan to wear it A LOT in December and have fun experimenting with different looks but I’ll definitely be wearing my other dresses, too.

And of course I’d love for you to donate!
Here is my advocate page.
You can also spread the word…or cheer me on! I’ve never worn a dress for 31 days straight! Make sure you’re following me on social media for all the updates.
I hope you’ll get involved in this worthwhile endeavor!
