A Campaign for Education

A Campaign for Education

Juno Mantel of Junbug has started a campaign to help educate girls in Sierra Leone. She has created this adorable vintage school dress, available in 5 colors, and 100% of the sales will be donated to her Do it in a Dress campaign. Her campaign is running from November 7th till December 7th (only one month) so make sure to take the SLurl to the Junbug store and try on a DEMO soon.

The dresses cost L$250 but there is an option to pay more if you want to add to the donation. You can also donate directly through the campaign page if you prefer. So far she has already raised quite a bit.

The Do it in a Dress campaign is part of the One Girl Organization in Australia. People from all over the world (men, women and children) have been taking part by wearing a dress and raising funds. Here’s a little video I found on their YouTube channel.

I think it’s a wonderful and fun initiative and I love that Juno has brought this into Second Life. She is encouraging everyone to share pictures of themselves in the dress in her flickr group. I hope you get the chance to donate to this important cause and participate.
