31 Dresses in December

Have you ever thought about getting involved with a cause, but never seem to find the time to get to it? It’s been on my to do list forever until finally Dressember fell into my lap and I decided to get involved.

“Dressember uses fashion to advocate for women who’ve been exploited for their femininity. 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” – Dressember mission

As women, we need to stand together and uplift one another. This is what Dressember is all about. Uniting against trafficking and abuse against women. I know my voice matters, I believe your voice matters and together we can help change the world that millions of abused women and girls wake up to every morning.

I am committing to wearing a dress every day of December 2015, yes all 31 days of it! Help me raise awareness and join me in Dressember, wear a dress for a good cause and/or make a contribution. Every bit counts, and the process is fast, easy, and secure. Join me in the fight for the restoration of dignity for all women!

You can also partner with me by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter. Or, send an email to friends you think might be interested in participating/contributing and include a link to my page!

Currently this initiative is making leaps and bounds in globally. My goal is to raise awareness and continue the drive in South Africa!  Stats indicate that 40% of South African women will be raped in their life time, only 1 out of 9 cases will be reported and only 14% of perpetrators convicted. These are shocking results! My goal is to create real change by creating awareness!

I’ll be posting my dress a day on social media! Join me and stand a chance to win a shirt dress of your choice, prelaunch, from our line! There are 4 simple steps:
