Dressember 19th

Dressember 19th
Busily anticipating those glorious days of December 24th and 25th.

We all look forward to some aspect of these days. Presents, family together, food, cookies, lights, candles, movies, carols, snow, trees, popcorn garland, hanging ornaments, pie, coffee with whipped cream, and opening Christmas cards from people who you never hear from any other time of the year...
There are approximately 27 million people, children, woman and men, who will have no kind of Christmas like we know and treasure. These 27 million people are slaves and forced to do another man's bidding; I was going to say, like a beast of burden, but even farmers give their stock a nice barn to sleep in, fresh hay to munch on. Nay, they are treated lower then animals.

This December we are wearing dresses to raise awareness of the Least of These. The individuals trapped and tricked into all kinds of modern day slavery.

You can be a part by sponsoring us for each dress we wear during the month! Give a gift that will give more than just a nice Christmas for these people, it will give them Freedom.

Happy Dressember and Merry Christmas!

Campaign 1:17 seeks to bring awareness of modern day slavery to people, and raise funds for IJM to continue their work.
We - Kerry, Sara, Hope and Holly - are wearing dresses everyday for a month to raise awareness and funds for Campaign 1:17 to benefit IJM to save kids and woman like us so they can live free.
