It's a frockin' good cause

Hello lovelies!

During the entire month of October I will be frocking up in support of a festive fund raising initiative which, aims to raise funds and awareness for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF). October has now been renamed Frocktober!

Far too many women die of this disease each year. A major problem is that there is currently no screening test for ovarian cancer and many women are diagnosed when it the cancer is well advanced.

Frocktober aims to help improve the outlook for women with the disease by supporting the quest for a suitable early detection test, through fundraising for the OCRF.

Essentially, Frocktober is challenging women to don a frock for a day, week, fortnight or a full month during October, and get sponsored for it! Check out their website for more details.

I can thank Miss Melanie for sharing the news about Frocktober with me. She is also blogging her way through her many outfit choices for the duration of October. Do visit and sponsor her at Mellygoesfrocktober.

So now you know why I will be regularly posting images of myself in dresses for the next month, you can now look deep into your pockets and purses and sponsor me too:

•  Cash: just fill out my donation form when donating your money (obviously we can do this when I see you :P
