In my last post I referred to someone who wore the same dress for a month to raise awareness of poverty. With her permission I am doing something similar. Instead of a dress, I have chosen to wear my black wool skirt, a black wool sweater and a snakeskin print shirt every day in December. I will change into different sleepwear.
I chose this outfit for a number of reasons:
- Wool is a natural and durable fibre worn throughout the centuries and which remains important in developing countries without factory-made clothing.
- These clothes will be able to be washed and dried overnight in order to wear them again the next day. I do not have a dryer.
- It is simple.
- It would not look out of place to work or at church.
- Except for the shirt, each item has been in my closet for at least three years and was purchased at a second-hand store.
There are numerous agencies that help the poor close to home or the poor far away. If you like what I am doing, please make a donation of any amount to an agency you trust. To God be the glory.
