"the most courageous act is still to think for yourself. aloud." || coco chanel
with the courage that so many are gathering to share their #metoo stories, no matter how "unimportant", ambiguous, or scarring, i can't help but draw parallels between the movement at what @dressember advocates for. i know it is still several months out, but i've already begun thinking about ways to make this year's campaign reach more people, raise more awareness about trafficking and abuse (which can start out as simple harassment...), and encourage others to join in.
i'm co-leading a team with emily of @adaypack and we're already starting to raise funds, even though we won't be wearing dresses for another few months. dressember as a whole has already raised more than 10k of their 2 million dollar goal 💪🏼
i've got lots planned for the month, including opening up my blog everyday for women to share their own stories (dm me or @savannah_dimarco for more on that!) collabs with brands who fight trafficking, and more.
click the link in my bio to join our team or please send me a dm for more information on anything i mentioned! more to come very soon ❤#inspiringsimplicity
Picture this. you wake up on a chilly autumn morning, walking outside on the back deck with a warm cup of coffee, in a cozy sweater. before you, all you can see for miles and miles is beautiful leaves in the colors of fall. the smell of pine trees wafts through the air. it is silent, on a morning when most animals are still sleeping, and birds have flown south for the winter. in this moment, you feel a peace and serenity, amazed at god’s creation, and fulfilled by the beauty of the great outdoors. 🌲 while this scene still exists in many areas throughout the world, the rate at which forest expanses are being destroyed is growing every year. forest acreage is cut down every second. it’s estimated that within a century, there will be no rainforests remaining (according to conserve energy). it’s our responsibility to steward our great outdoors. // this week @sevenly's #greatoutdoors collection benefits @arbordayfoundation, planting 7 trees for every purchase. learn more on the blog today 💚
Some inspiration and encouragement for your day: this is el guanito, a very remote community in the dominican republic that learned about a clean water solution from a neighboring pastor. that pastor and his community had already implemented their water filtration system, and they offered their support and manual labor to help el guanito install their own. thanks to their neighboring community + @jennakutcher & @kickingitwithkutch - these kiddos will be drinking safe, and clean water! what could more encouraging than that?!
