This non-dress-wearing girl is donning a dress every day for the month of December. And I want you to join me.
The whole idea behind Dressember is to raise money for International Justice Mission (IJM). My favorite thing about IJM is that not only do they rescue victims of sex trafficking and slavery, but they also have a large group of lawyers and brilliant minded people who work hard to change the laws in those countries so the traffickers can be prosecuted.

Many times, victims are rescued and nothing can be done to bring the perpetrator to justice. That’s where IJM steps in.
My sister, my best friend, and a few other a-MAY-zing people have joined the team I set up. I’d LOVE to have you do this with me.
Here’s the scoop on Dressember:
2. Wear a dress every day in December. (Doesn’t have to be a different dress every day. In fact, the founder wears the same dress
3. Let people know you’re raising money for IJM (International Justice Mission).
4. (optional) Post a pic to Instagram, FB, Twitter. It’s so much fun to see all the different ways people are wearing their dresses.Participate!
There is no catch. If you don’t raise money, at the very least, you’ve raised awareness. Even if you end up not wearing a dress every day, you still had fun, and again…the awareness thing.
