For one month or thirty days, we pledge to wear the same grey dress.
The goal is to challenge ourselves and YOU to walk a month in the shoes of a girl who has no choices. By wearing the same piece of clothing for thirty days, you can feel a small piece of the isolation, oppression, enslavement, and inability to make choices felt by girls and women worldwide in human trafficking and impoverishment.
We are raising money to donate to three separate organizations. This year, participants have the choice of donating their fundraised money to The Daughter Project, The Circle of Sisterhood, or the Aruna Project.
These organizations are raising awareness about human trafficking and educational opportunities for girls. The One Grey Dress Project asks its participants to challenge themselves and their world to look deeper into these issues, and possibly donate in the process. Our month of fundraising and awareness will culminate with BGSU's Aruna 5K on November 5, 2016, 10 days after we have completed the thirty day project.
