Dressed for a Cause

It's been awhile since I've done a What I Wore post.  So ahead of the Summer Challenge, I thought I'd mix it up a bit.  Yesterday, I wore orange in support of the first ever Gun Violence Awareness Day. Sometimes supporting a cause is more than just the money aspect.  It's about bringing awareness and conversation to it, too. Every time I hear of a cause having an awareness day, wearing a certain color or dressing in a certain way, I try to support and do my part.  My school has lots of days where we can pay to support a cause and wear the color of that cause.  So I do that too.  I thought today I'd share some of the looks and causes with you!  Some I've blogged about, others you may have seen on Insta and still others I haven't blogged or talked about.

This was me yesterday, June 2nd, #WearingOrange for Gun Violence.  I thought of so many who have been killed over the years due to senseless gun violence.  And all the kids in schools...Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech, most recently, Marysville, WA....and so many more, unfortunately!!
I should get more sleep!  Ugh...

Earlier this year, on March 25th I supported Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day by wearing green.  I figured having CP, I needed  to support! HA! And in all honesty, this is the first I'd ever heard of it!  But now will continue to rock my green for CP every year! My bestie,  Mel and fellow blogger friend, JulieAnn, from Coach G's Wife, supported the cause along with me.

Last October, for Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wore pink every Friday.  I did a whole What I Wore blog about it here.

I've also supported Autism Awareness, wearing my Autism shirt form Counting on Hope! This is the most comfortable t-shirt EVER!!  I am eyeing another one too!!

During the Winter Challenge all the challengers got together and wore teal for a fellow challenger, Terri who has ovarian cancer.  Teal is the color of ovarian cancer.  This was my look!

I've worn red for heart disease and woman numerous times and blue for World Diabetes Day and Domestic Violence Awareness.  Every cause I support, I support for someone I know, someone I love, or someone I miss.  There are so many causes I've missed out on supporting too.  But I'll add them to my calendar next year!!    

And just for fun, I leave you with this...I rocked my red nose to help bring awareness to children in poverty, just last week.  The show on NBC was both heartbreaking and enlightening! #idonatedforfelix

Are there any causes you support that I need to know about?  PLEASE mention them in the comments below!

Have a happy Wednesday!!  The weekend's almost here!!  Woo Hoo!!

  3. Orange is a cute color on you Katie---I wish I could wear it but it's just not great with my skin tone and hair. Although it is in my top 3 of my most favorite colors.

  4. I love that there's so many different ways to raise awareness to different causes!
