The purpose of Dressemeber, besides showing off pretty dresses, is to raise awareness for issues. I have started a donation page that I will put a link to at the end of this post, the donations go to support the Sub-Saharan Children’s Hope Trust http://www.subsaharanchildrenshope.org/
They are an organization that helps provide education, health care, and life skills training to orphans and other impoverished children in sub-Saharan Africa. I have put up a link to the charity’s website as well as the link to my Just Giving page that allows secure donations to the charity. Let’s enjoy the month, the fun of dressing up. But at the same time, think about the little kids who lost their parts to AIDS. While we are running around getting all our Christmas shopping done, they are wondering where their next meal is coming from and if they will have a future, things that we take for granted. So instead of spending more money at the mall or the toy store on stuff we dont need, lets give these kids a meal, an education, and ultimately a future!
