Knit and Crochet Dresses Fight Human Trafficking This Dressember

For Dressember, participants wear a dress or tie every day of the month. Using that as the basis for posts, they share information to prevent human trafficking. And they raise money to help solve the situation. Namaste and Crochet has introduced a handmade element to this cause. Her team will also be wearing knit / crochet garments and raising awareness about the value of slow fashion, the importance of sustainability, and how handmade helps heal individuals and communities.

There are many ways that you can participate. You can donate. You can join a team and participate yourself to raise money and awareness. If nothing else, you can share posts about it on your social media.

It’s Giving Tuesday. It’s a Great Day to Donate!

Giving Tuesday, launched 2012, is a day encouraging people to give to others in any way that they can. It’s about recognizing that the holiday season isn’t just about getting but about generosity and connection.
