The Uniform Project

So I was reading up on current events i.e. really just checking on cnn.com to see if anything caught my eye — and something did!

So basically there’s this really cool girl — name: Sheena Matheiken — and she had this really cool idea.

Idea: wear one dress for all 365 days of the year.

She reinvented the TRUE luxury of owning a LBD (little black dress). While this may seem to be a fun project to cut down on shopping costs and reinforce the wonderful idea of renewable clothing; she also did this project in conjunction with a fund raiser to raise money for The Akanksha Foundation. The Akanksha Foundation is a non-profit  located in Mumbai, India. The foundation recognized that the Indian government spends on average $360 on every ONE child that attends school. So Sheena made her project public throughout the course of a year and was able to raise $94,698.00 which means that she was able to send 263 slum children to school for 1 year!

I can honestly not say it better than Sheena herself. Watch her video. She’s cool. I think we should be friends. I think I should have that dress.

So, if you want to know more about this project, you can check out the cnn.com interview (the site where I found her), check out her facebook fan page, or the logical place to go The Uniform Project website.

Peace and Love Throughout the World
