Her Worth International Launches Kickstarter Project to Fight Sex Trade & Trafficking

Monday, October 17, 2016


Her Worth International has launched its first major project called One Dress United on Kickstarter with the hope of funding production of the Freedom Dress with 100% of profits economically vulnerable women around the world, starting with a group in Haiti. 

The campaign went over 25% funding in the first 48 hours 

The Dress 

The dress is a classic black shirtdress, featuring branded tab sleeves and a custom designed fabric lining the yoke, featuring the words "Compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience" repeated over and over again. 

“My hope is the dress will serve as a simple backdrop for a larger discussion about women’s worth and the power of our choices as consumers in the fight against human trafficking,” says Nelson.

The dress will be made of Tencel, a material like rayon, but sustainably produced, resistant to wrinkling, and with a fluid quality. 

Support Freedom Dress 

Those interested can pledge to preorder The Freedom Dress™ as well as accessories handmade by the women of Jasper House Haiti, a ministry that educates and empowers women exiting the sex trade in Jacmel.

The campaign funds the first order of dresses and will run through Cyber Monday (November 28, 2016). To contribute to the campaign go to herworth.com.

The dress will retail for $169, but will be available for $94 for Early Birds during the Kickstarter campaign. All of the profits from the sale of he dress will go to support the educational and vocational programs offered by Jasper House Haiti.
