Dressember Day 3: The Spirit of the Season

#Dressember Day 3
The spirit of the season, is made for the dreams come true

Experiencing the magic of Christmastime today at Disneyland, I was reminded of the spirit of this season: that dreams come true. Disney princesses dream of balls and gowns and prince charmings; while the real-life princesses being mistreated and sold into slavey around the world dream of freedom. The spirit of Dressember is to redefine fashion and creativity for a cause. As I wore my dress today and prepared for this magic, I prayed and thought of the woman I am dressing for. I am dressing for their dignity. I am dressing for their dreams to come true #disneyland @Dressember 14490398318267-2.jpg

happy Christmas to all and to all a good night

#Dressember Day 2

Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”- The Night Before Christmas

Lessons from Santa:
Sometimes you have to squeeze through tight places to geto to where you need to go.
Making others happy can often be an inconvenience to yourself.
Spread happiness on your way, as you go!

The Christmas Spirit is all about inconveniencing yourself with the aim to make another happy. We think of and get excited about buying gifts  and doing things for those we love that we know they would appreciate. Why do we do these kind things? Because we know that ultimately, this is what brings us joy. Loving others is a desire inherent to who we are as humans and the character of Santa Claus reminds us that despite the inconveniences, the narrow chimneys, the stale cookies and the others trials he went through: he still spread the Christmas cheer everywhere he went. May we all prioritize the desire to help others, and in turn, help ourselves so a wreath like a halo follows us wherever we go.

my grown-up Christmas List

Dressember Day #1: My Grown Up Christmas List– No More LIves Torn Apart by modern day slavery.
Whatever you hope for this Christmas, I hope it’s not just about you. It’s easy to get caught up in this season and think you need to buy just one more thing to make yourself happy when the true source of satisfaction is when you do something for someone else. Join me in helping fight for the inherent dignity of all women. That they will be “clothed with strength and dignity” and restored to their proper place, replacing their role in a statistic, their false identities as a “sex slave” and trading that in for daughter, princess, woman, beautiful. I know my voice matters, and that I can help change the world that millions of abused women and girls wake up to every morning. Your voice matters, too, and our voices are louder together. Let’s sing, let’s run, let’s dress for the restoration of dignity for all women.
Follow my blog and fundraiser page to stay updated on my @dressember challenge and become educated on the fight against modern slavery.
Whatever you hope for this season, some girl is hoping for freedom. Stand with her to make her Christmas list yours. 🙌🏼👯💃🏻14490398318267
