The One With Dressember Day 1

I’m taking a stand with Dressember for the world’s most vulnerable to fight human trafficking in all forms. Did you know that about 1 in 10 children worldwide are forced into child labor according to the International Labour Organization and UNICEF? In total, this adds up to 160 million children.

Children are exploited for labor in multiple industries—from chocolate to agriculture to fast fashion. The Dressember Network is actively working to address child labor around the world, including in India, Ghana, Tanzania, the Philippines, Cambodia, South Africa, Bulgaria, and Greece. 100% of their international programmatic partners employ local leaders to provide culturally appropriate care and exit pathways to freedom.

When you support Dressember, you become part of a global effort to end child labor through holistic intervention programs. Together, we can disrupt this criminal industry and fight for the freedom and healing of children everywhere.

I am collaborating with Dressember, to fundraise monies toward the fight against human trafficking. In support of my campaign and to raise awareness, I will be wearing this dress everyday in the month of December (styled in different ways). Rather than buy clothing & shoes during the month, I will be placing these funds toward my efforts.

a latte of sparkles & giggles until next time,
