Dressember 5th

Dressember 5th
It's Not 'JUST' A Dress
Celebrating Freedom and Femininity and raising awareness of the modern day slave trade.
The land rights of women are violated on a massive scale worldwide, but with particular ferocity in Africa, leaving widows and other women in vulnerable positions unable to care for themselves or their children. Around the world, women suffer the double trauma of rape - and seeing their perpetrators face no consequences. {source}
IJM seeks to make public justice systems work for victims of abuse and oppression who urgently need the protection of the law. {source}
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 and Hope - 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 live free.

Wanna join the fun?
    Dressember 3rd and 4th had us enjoying the sun shine and temps up to 75*!

    It was nice taking our pictures outside everyday. So far.

    Today was a little different. :^)

    We were shivering in our tights and billowing dresses in 27* today! 

    With ice piling up around us, wouldn't it be warmer just to wear pants?

    Now snow is piling up on top of the ice this late afternoon in Missouri and we are glad we can partake in some suffering for this cause.

    All for Jesus.

    Don't miss a single dress!
