Have you heard? It’s Frocktober! What does this mean? During the month of October, people around the world are rocking frocks to raise funds and awareness for ovarian cancer research. Since its start in 2007, when a group of friends in Geelong, Australia each donned a dress, went out to a pub, and passed around a hat to raise $200, Frocktober continues to grow each year with more women — and some men — rocking frocks for the cause. The Frocktober challenge is simple: wear a dress to raise funds and awareness for ovarian cancer research.
We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to partner with such a groovy group, so we’ve declared that darling piece above the Frocktober Dress, and will donate 20% of the proceeds to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation of Australia.
But rocking the Frocktober Dress isn’t the only way you can participate and help raise awareness. Consider blogging about Frocktober, hosting a frock swap, or organizing a ‘Frock Friday’ at work. Check out more ideas here.
Or, you can donate directly. Here are a few suggested organizations:
- Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation of Australia
- Ovarian Cancer National Alliance
- Ovarian Cancer Research Fund
So what are you waiting for? Get frockin’!
