YOUR DRESS CAN
help change a life
Our process is simple: we donate 1/3 of the proceeds of every gown we sell to nonprofit organizations that promote the rights of women and children around the world. By choosing A Day in June, your eco-friendly purchase will help advance human rights - and protect the planet, too. Just one of our dresses has the chance to change lives and create a better world for all of us.
Change never looked so good.
What can a single dress do?
Just one wedding gown can:
Fund girls' stays in safe houses to protect them from genital mutilation during cutting season
Buy bicycles for Nepalese girls so they can gain a high school education, when ordinarily the commute would be too long or dangerous for them to attend school
Provide Kenyan women with sewing machines to enable them to start a business and achieve financial independence
ENDING CHILD MARRIAGE
VOW for Girls
Approximately 37,000 girls under age 18 are married every day. More girls are being married now than at any previous point in history. In the developing world, 1 in 9 girls under age 15 is married.
Child marriage truncates a girl's childhood, ends her education, and curtails her economic opportunities. It also significantly increases her risk of experiencing domestic violence; of enduring early, frequent, and very high-risk pregnancies; and of experiencing newborn and infant loss.
The reasons that young girls marry are diverse, and so are the solutions. We are partnering with VOW For Girls to end the practice of child marriage. VOW believes in locally-driven solutions to the complex issue of child marriage, so they provide grants to community-led and community-based organizations that interact directly with the girls and families that are affected by child marriage.
