Dressember is a great opportunity for the students of Maranatha High School to come together in an effort to combat human trafficking.
The Dressember Foundation is a global organization that focuses on taking a stand against human trafficking through the simple act of wearing a dress or putting on a tie. It exists to inspire and empower a global community of like-minded women and men who are locking arms to face one of the greatest injustices of our time. As a school community, Maranatha students can take a stand against modern-day slavery through this campaign. By participating in Dressember, they can portray the urgency of such an issue, while encouraging others to join Dressember and make it an annual Maranatha tradition.
To participate in Dressember, students need to donate $10.00 to the Maranatha Dressember team. Participating females then wear dresses and males will wear a button-up and a tie every Friday in December. A list of those who have donated will be delivered to the front desk and wrist bands will be passed out at the front desk to those who have donated.
Students are reminded that this campaign is a 31-day challenge that continues outside of school and a social justice issue that continues all year. Donate today by clicking on the link HERE to help combat human trafficking.
