This fundraiser is inspired by Dressember! I'm very excited to do this! It's going to be so fun and this is an awesome new cause that I haven't been involved with before.
I recently heard about Dressember and I don't want to wait until next December to do this! So I am going to do the same concept, wear a dress/skirt every day and raise awareness and money for a related local cause. I did some googling and chose the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence (NHCADSV).
Dressember is kind of like Movember. Instead of a mustache you wear a dress every day of the month and raise awareness and money to fight human trafficking and sexual assault. The idea is you are wearing something feminine everyday, supporting people who are exploited because of their femininity. They are partnered with the International Justice Mission. So I'll be doing this next December!
This campaign will be supporting New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence (NHCADSV). We will be Dressing Up throughout March 2018.
We create safe and just communities through advocacy, prevention and empowerment of anyone affected by sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking.
This mission is accomplished by the Coalition, which includes 13 independent community-based member programs, a Board of Directors and a central staff working together to:
- Influence public policy on the local, state and national levels;
- Ensure that quality services are provided to victims;
- Promote the accountability of societal systems and communities for their responses to sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking;
- Prevent violence and abuse before they occur.
In the last two years, 3,724 people were turned away from New Hampshire’s domestic violence shelters. That includes 2,520 adults and 1,204 children. We can do better. You can help!
Your generous donation will allow the Coalition to provide education, prevention, and advocacy to ensure that no victim is turned away from the help they need and help create a safer community for all New Hampshire residents.
