December is Dressember. Beginning December 1st, ladies all around the world commit to wearing a dress every day for the entire month in support of human trafficking causes. While the dresses act as conversation starters, the Dressember Foundation also believes they can use them as a way to reclaim and reappropriate them as symbols of freedom and power.
The primary function is to raise both awareness and money to end modern slavery so there is a fundraising element that is encouraged. Since 2013 Dressember advocates have raised $7 million in the fight against human trafficking. As with any such endeavor, if you can't afford to donate, wear your dresses anyway to help raise awareness - the site has all of the statistics necessary to have an enlightening conversation with someone. There are all different ways to fight for what you believe in.
Even the littlest things should be celebrated
