Monday Musings – Can a Dress Change the World?
It’s amazing to me how God leads me in a different direction sometimes. On Facebook I saw a post about DRESSember. Curious I followed the post. This is what I found out:
Can a dress change the world?
That is the question.
The challenge is to wear a dress every day in December to bring awareness about sex trafficking around the world.
After hearing all the talk about wearing dresses to raise awareness about human trafficking I decided to do it too.
Tomorrow is day 1.
I think I am ready. I am a pants girl. So this will be a challenge. But coupled with skirts and pants over dresses I think I can do this.
I remember when I attended school and university that we had to wear dresses, even in snowstorms in Toronto. I had high boots, but cold knees. We didn’t have fashionable tights or leggings.
I am going to donate to Ratanak International,. I learned about this organization when Kelita Haverland came to be a speaker at our Women’s Day Together a few years ago. And I am Canadian and this is a Canadian charity. But it has a US affiliate so you can donate there if you are American.
However and whatever happens it is opening my eyes to prayer for those who are caught in this human trafficking evil. Please pray with me for the month of December (and beyond).
If you want to join me, email me at Janis and I will give you the scoop (as far as I know it).
I will be posting updates and pictures on my Facebook Page – AuthorJanisCox. And will update my progress next Monday.
I am joining with Ratanak International to support their work. See more on my Facebook Page as I figure this out.
Here is my Ratanak Page.
Also I have decided to give $5.00 for each Tadeo Turtle (my children’s book) sold during the month of December. Please see How Tadeo Wants to help Fight Against Human Trafficking.

Lord, please help all of us to be faithful in prayer for everything that you bring to our attention. Today I am praying for all those affected by the evils of human trafficking and I am asking for wisdom and abundance for those who work to fight against this evil and help those who are hurt by it. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
I love that you are doing this, Janis! I volunteer for an organization in Fort Worth called Purchased that helps woman who have been exploited through sex trafficking. The need for followers of Jesus to minister in this area is so great. Thanks for sharing what God has put on your heart!
