It has often been said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” What is this journey I’m asking you to travel with me? Where does it take us? Why do we go?
Well, this blog’s goal is to use fashion to help orphaned children in India.
Orphans in India can’t go to school without a uniform. However, they often don’t have clothes to wear. Growing up surrounded by turmoil, human trafficking, and loss, an education can help these orphans dream about a different life. I have been given so much that I can have “fashion,” while these children struggle to stay clothed. I have to do something. I’m hoping you’ll do it with me.
Here’s the deal: I’ll wear a black dress for several months (don’t worry—I’ll have two of the exact same style so that I don’t start smelling) to identify with the children who only have one outfit. I’ll accessorize it in different ways, take a picture every day, and blog it. Think of it as a dress marathon.
Here’s where you can help. I want to raise $50,000 for the orphans in India. I’m going to wear this dress as a reminder of these children. Would you help me help them? Through partnering with Warm Blankets Orphan Care, let’s dream big for these children who may never get the chance to dream at all unless we do something. Even the smallest gift will make a difference.
I also want to say that I was completely inspired to do this by the incredible woman Sheena from The Uniform Project. She was the one who first had the brilliant idea to wear a dress for a fundraiser. More amazing than that she did it for a year. I am grateful that she stepped out and did what she has done so that other woman like myself can follow in her footsteps.
