#TIMESUP – How you can be a part!

#TIMESUP – How you can be a part!

Today’s post is a very special one to me. It’s something I don’t take lightly in sharing this message with thousands of people. When I received the e-mail regarding the details of this collaboration, I felt a burning inside my chest. To have a voice in something so pertinent and meaningful in today’s society is something I don’t take lightly.

With so much press surrounding the #timesup initiative, I don’t feel like I need to go into depth as to what this hashtag represents. I can’t say that I personally understand the inner struggle these girls have been forced to walk out each and every day as I have never been put into this position myself. But thousands and thousands of young women and GIRLS have. More than we probably realize as it’s been a common thread to stay silenced about this matter. It’s heartbreaking and it needs to stop. If you have been a victim of sexual harassment, you are apart of the #timesup movement.

eBay stands for individuality. The black dress is a fashion staple in most wardrobes, however, how you choose to wear and accessorize it represents your personal style. Personally (as seen in pictures below), I like to add a little glam and a little edge. It’s the perfect mix for my style!

From Friday, January 19 thru Friday, January 26 at 9PM PST/12PM EST, shoppers can go to ebay.com/timesup and bid on the red carpet looks from celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep, Kate Hudson, Jude Law, and many others. All of these dresses/tux’ were worn by these iconic stars at this years Golden Globes and were donated by designers such as Chanel, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Versaci, and more.

Three of the designers dresses will be available via a sweepstakes model in which eBay users can donate starting at $25.00 to the TIMES UP Legal Defense Fund for a chance to win the dress of their choice.

The reason behind it all: 100% off proceeds will benefit the TIMES UP Legal Team.

Thank you eBay for taking a stand for this movement and for providing a way for us all to be tangibly apart.

Head HERE to bid!

    You have a typo in the title. It should be “how you can be a part” not “apart” because apart means to divert away from something, not join together to help the #timesup movement.

      Thank you for proof reading 🙂 I do miss things here and there as it’s not my forte.

    Also I’m not sure if you proofread this or not, but there are a few typos throughout the article so I would fix that.
