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. Dressember is a month of wearing dresses, but it is so much more. At its core, Dressember is an embracing of the inherent freedom and feminity of all women.
In 2013, Dressember took on new meaning: opposing the worldwide trafficking and exploitation of women. In its first year as a fundraising campaign, Dressember aligned with International Justice Mission, a human rights organization that works to rescue victims of slavery, sexual exploitation, and other forms of violent oppression. Those who participate in Dressember are supporting the abolition of modern day slavery. Beginning in 2015, the Dressember campaign will expand to partner with other anti-trafficking organizations.Our Dressember Fundraising Page can be found here. On top of that, we are offering the next 20 vendors to donate $50 to our Fundraising Page, 50$ off our annual vendor membership to join Black Sheep Bride, annual 300×100 side bar ad space and/or feature posts prices, the month of December. We are also so excited to share we have teamed up with California based wedding gown designer, Lindee Daniel, and will be taking the Dressember Challenge to the tenth power and wearing her exclusive Little Organic Black Dress everyday of December. We will be a walking billboard for this cause and be ready to chat with folks in person and over social media everyday about why we have chosen to join the fundraising efforts/dress wearing efforts for those without a voice. Go check out their website for more information and take a look at their partners page, as well. We are so thrilled to have 4 of our very own vendors representing the Dressemeber Mission as well: The Giving Keys, Mata Traders, Sseko Designs, and Flourish Art and Gifts !
