Do It In A Dress 2020

My Activity Tracking


I'm Doing It In A Dress because...

this year, more than ever, we've seen the way poverty and a lack of education affect everything - particularly our health. 

While Covid-19 has impacted all of us, both financially and personally (myself included), it's impact will continue to be disproportionately felt for decades in low-income communities. 

Living through isolation has made me feel different things at different times – I have been equally lonely, depressed and pessimistic while anxiously thinking about the future as I have been grateful, hopeful and energised by the way our communities have found new ways to connect. 

Adjusting to home-schooling, home-university, working from home, and home-socialising has been difficult for everyone. But COVID-19 has not been a 'great leveller' affecting everyone equally – it has, and will continue to disproportionately affect the lives of disadvantaged groups, particularly young women and girls living in low-income communities. 

So this year, though I know that many of you will be sick of my constant barrage of Do It In A Dress posts, and others won't be in a financial position to support me, I am going to put on that dress for another year. Not only because I want to make sure that Covid-19 doesn't become another barrier to girls accessing education, but for the purely selfish reason that I need something to feel good about right now! 

If you (like me) need to reignite your hope that the future can be a better place maybe it's time you put on a dress and join me? Or maybe you can skip that online shopping this week and donate here instead? 

This year, for every $100 donated to my Do It In A Dress campaign between now and October 11th, I will take my daily morning walk (and source of sanity) with Lola in... you guessed it! A SCHOOL DRESS.
