Day 13. I was rushed to get to work this morning and then went non-stop all day and straight to our office Christmas activity. I just got home and I’m posting my #Dressember photo with about an hour to spare. Don’t let the business of the season make you forget about the important things... like donating to this campaign that’s fighting human trafficking. Link is in my bio.

Day 13 - I feel like once you’re in Forbes, there’s no question of your legitimacy. Proud of this organization and it’s founder. Follow @Dressember on FB to see live videos from Blythe about the realities of human trafficking. I can sense a group of advocates rising up and together, with one voice, declaring right from wrong. I can see a future without exploitation. A future where every human life has dignity and value and the freedom to dream. @blythehill engineered one of many trains to get us there. Incredibly humbled to play a part in this campaign. ✊️ #dressember #imagodei #endslavery #itsbiggerthanadress #forbes #founders #humantrafficking #magazines #under30 #changetheworld #millenials #untilallarefree #justice #freedom #vision #dream #rising
#dressember day 13: wait, what is this for again?
In case you're new here, I'm wearing a dress. There is snow. I will wear a dress again tomorrow. Again, snow. During the month of December, I'm participating in this movement called @dressember because I believe all people deserve to live in freedom (I actually do live in Freedom, and yes that is ironic, but I digress). I believe people should never be bought, sold, or exploited for the benefit or enjoyment of another. That is called trafficking, and it is a $150 billion (with a b) industry. Waaaaay bigger than most of us realize or can even comprehend, because didn't slavery go away? Anyway, Dressember exists to disrupt this industry, that currently enslaves more than 30 million people worldwide, through fundraising to bring rescue, rehabilitation, and resources to its grant partners: @a21, @ijm, and @mcmahonryancac.
I am doing this to create meaningful conversations around this extraordinarily difficult and complex issue of modern-day slavery but also to help with the funding of life-saving initiatives like actual rescues of actual people.
I set a goal to raise $3,000. This is not normal. It's actually obnoxious and definitely completely crazy, but guys nothing is impossible with God and I am so passionate about this I can't not do it. In the words of one of my (and all of the #412 's) favorite people on the planet, none other than Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, "That's one of the reasons why it pushes – pushes you to action. As difficult as [trafficking] is to digest, to fathom, it's probably just as tough not to take action once you've –once you've crossed that bridge." Well, I've crossed it, and so have many of you, and if you know anything about Pittsburghers and crossing bridges you'd know that's kind of a big deal.
Here's the miraculous part. Thanks to your donations--including the most recent one from my childhood friend Ashleigh (thank you, Ash!), we are just $627.49 shy of meeting my ridiculously rude goal. And December isn't even half over! I still have to wear dresses for 18 more days! That's plenty of time for you to cross the bridge! #itsbiggerthanadress #dressemberpgh
How is this possible?
@Regranned from @bishopjakes - The slave trade that is going on in Libya, and even globally, is an atrocity that has to STOP. We, as a people have to partner together to put an end to this horrific disregard for human life. Here are a few ways you can help: —Use YOUR voice (Social Media, your community, etc.) to raise awareness! —Support organizations that give aid to countries from which migrants are fleeing. —Contact your local officials and become an advocate in the fight against slavery & human trafficking.
We have got to say something…we CANNOT be silent. #Libya #HumanTrafficking #SlaveryInLibya #LibyanSlaveTrade. @cnn @msnbc @foxnews #silenceisourgreatestenemy

Dressember for Dragonfly, Day 13 - Why does The Dragonfly Home (@thedrgnflyhome) include the word "home" in our name when we currently operate a non-residential crisis center for human trafficking survivors? ⠀
We strongly believe in the power of a warm, inviting, homey environment as the best place to recover! Our services at the Human Trafficking Relief and Restoration Center are non-residential, where our therapy rooms feel more like living rooms! We also plan to open a The Dragonfly Home Shelter Program in 2018, which will also embrace the atmosphere of a real home.⠀
I'm wearing a dress everyday in December to support Dressember for Dragonfly, a fundraising effort to benefit survivors of human trafficking who receive assistance through The Dragonfly Home! I will feature one of our amazing participant's pages everyday, too! Meet Katie! If you'd like to give to The Dragonfly Home through Dressember for Dragonfly, please support her campaign! Find her page when you click the link in my bio!⠀

#dressember Day 13 - Freedom.

Thinking of the 3 TV networks that wanted to “buy” my story, take my intellectual rights and tell their own narrative of my life’s work rescuing sex-trafficked teens.
17 years in the business - I’m so happy I never sold out. No amount of money is worth the trust the girls on the street have in me and the respect I’ve earned from pimps; some of whom now call me to come get the teens who think hoeing is cool, hip, and the thing to do. Thanks @adisafilms for @skininthegamefilm - this will be as real as it gets.
PS: those documentaries aren’t all real on sex-Trafficking. If you think for ONE moment that a pimp will reveal his face for some TV time over his money and stable, you’re as foolish as the people who make those “documentaries”! ♀️♀️

Report: A worrying number of children have disappeared from a north London borough.
In the last few weeks, at least nine children between 13 and 17 have gone missing from the Enfield area.
———————————————-Police say that while some of the kids could be missing together, they are conducting independent investigations for each child reported missing. #JaydonHall #SarirOmar #JamalDaleyBonner #RobertDonaldson #HamarniSylvester #DanielOseiBoakye are ALL suspected of being victims of #HumanTrafficking or #OrganTrafficking
