So, what should you do in a dress? It’s a question we get asked a lot. And the short answer is: Anything. EVERYTHING!

The first time you might feel a little self-conscious, but people will start congratulating you for doing such an awesome thing and before you know it you’ll be itching for excuses to get your dress on!

The more that people see you in your dress, the more money you’ll raise, and the more girls you’ll be help send to school.

SO….

So do your grocery shopping, walk your dog, head to your local cafe, go to your lecture/tute/class, pick up the kids from school – and rock your dress while you do it!

AND….

Post photos to social media of you doing it! Include the link to your fundraising page in each post and watch the donations flow in.
