This is my 4th year joining the Dressember movement! For those that are new here, every December, Cozy Reverie joins the 31-day challenge of wearing a dress to bring awareness to the Dressember organization. I feel like I have written about this amazing organization for years now, so I don't want to rewrite my words for the 4th time. Instead, I'm going to give you the bullet points because, let's be real, everybody reads bullet points. They're easy on the eyes. ;)
What is Dressember?
A organization raising funds to end modern-day slavery around the world.
How do they use our money to end slavery?
Dressember partners with the organizations,International Justice Mission and A21, which work to save victims of human trafficking and help them adjust to the world again.
Why a dress?
Wearing a dress for 31 days brings awareness to our cause. This is our uniform. It symbolizes our power as women, basically saying "you can do anything in a dress". More on that here.
How can I help?
Sooooo glad you asked! There are many ways you can help and these are the top three:
This money will be going towards rescue missions to save victims, lawyer fees to protect victims as well as shut down human trafficking operations, and help victims adjust to their new lives outside of abuse. My goal this year is $350 and every little bit helps!
Become an advocate
Wear a dress every day in December! By becoming an advocate, you are bringing more awareness to the cause which means we have a bigger opportunity to raise more money for victims. "Together, change is possible."
Can't wear a dress every day? No worries! You can still help bring awareness by joining the lettering challenge, Letter for Dressember. I have partnered up with ELM Creative to bring you a creative and fun way to let your friends and followers discover Dressember. Check out the daily prompts below and we hope to see you join on Instagram!
If you have read this far, THANK YOU! You are a rock star! I truly hope you can help in one way or another. At the end of the challenge, every person that donates via my fundraising page will get to choose one art print of their choice. YAY! Win-win!
