I simply adore a frock … or three. For the month of October, I’m going to rock a lot of frocks. 31 frocks in fact. All in the name of fundraising for OCRF, the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.
The OCRF has a fabulous mission – to develop an early detection test for ovarian cancer, the silent killer. Every 10 hours an Australian woman dies from ovarian cancer. Every. Ten. Hours.
Frocktober is an amazing opportunity to reduce, reuse and recycle by wearing 31 Days of Frocks, whilst raising awareness and much needed funds for OCRF. I’m digging deep in my wardrobe and will be taking some old friends for a spin. More accurately, a twirl. I am a girl who loves a twirl!
Men can participate in Frocktober too by “frocking” up by rocking a bowtie, patterned socks or dressing more stylishly than usual. You can click here to find out more about how you can participate in Frocktober to raise funds for this Very Important cause.
I’m setting myself the additional challenge of wearing a different dress every day for 31 days. But why leave it there? For Week One of Frocktober, I’ll be wearing a maxi dress for what I’ve dubbed Maxi Dress Week. Week Two will find me wearing a Verily frock every single day. Weeks Three and Four? Currently open for suggestions!
I’m asking people to dig deep into their pockets to support this cause. You can follow my rock your frock adventures and some fabulous frock rockers at Team Kimba Likes’ Everyday Hero fundraising page. Click here to check it out.
