The Daughter Project

I am about to embark on something a little crazy, crazy for me at least. My dear friend, Amy, has been wearing the same gray dress everyday since November. Everyday!

Why, you ask? To raise money and awareness for The Daughter project. It is a non-profit organization in Northwest Ohio that exists to help girls recover from the trauma of sex trafficking and helps to prevent others from being trafficked.

Why Northwest Ohio? Amy says this, "“I had no idea there was sex slavery in my own backyard,"I think I was overwhelmed to realize that in 2006 in a rescue bust in Philadelphia there were 150 rescued. Over 50% that were rescued were from Toledo."

Amy was interviewed by her local tv station, which lead to recognition on CNN. Click here to see the interview

Amy has asked friends to each take a month with her in the one dress campaign. So, here I go......I am wearing the same dress everyday for a month. I am starting tomorrow February 17th and ending on my birthday, March 17th.

I'm certain that i won't be as creative in making the dress look different everyday as Amy does. It would take you awhile to realize she was wearing the same dress over and over because she comes up with lots of creative ways to wear it.

Despite my lack of creativity, I hope to be apart of helping raise awareness and money for the Daughters. If you are interested in giving, visit: The Daughter Project


  1. I am proud of you Kelly. Please send me a photo of the dress since I won't see you in it for the entire month....

  2. Kelly,
    This is a great idea & cause! You'll have to post a pic on facebook so everyone can see the dress.
