Today, other bloggers and I have come together to post about DRESSEMBER! Each of us are registered participants in the Dressember campaign that uses fashion as a lieu to advocate for women used for their femininity. The Dressember Foundation is aligned with the International Justice Mission to rescue victims of slavery and sexual exploitation. All of us decided to collaborate together to help increase visibility and raise awareness of this event. Christine of Beyoutiful Hope and I decided to even double the collaboration by taking our pictures together for this fun post. It has been a while since I have seen this lovely lady and it was amazing to finally catch up with her after all the human trafficking awareness she has done. I have been trying as an individual to work on human trafficking awareness. But once she told me about this I was sold! I have a reason to wear dresses and help people!

Our goal as bloggers is to raise more money to help the International Justice Mission continue their abolition work! They all posted AWESOME DRESSember looks today, so don’t forget to hop on over to their pages(links below). Some of them are posting later today, but please be sure to come back and check them out! 😉

Just a little FYI:

Human trafficking is harboring and trade of humans. It is the second largest illegal industry behind drug trafficking and can occur in all areas of the world. And not only does it happen in pre-industrialized societies it plagues our world from the suburbs to the cities of the greatest countries. The types of human trafficking can range from labor to sexual exploitation. Those traded or used as slaves are coerced and put into strenuous situations that can result in extreme psychosis or even death. Some types are more prominent in certain areas than others such as labor trafficking in Western New York.
