Next month is the IJM Benefit Dinner. One thing I am NOT going to do (which I might have done in the past) is buy something new to wear to the event. It would be counter-productive. I want to live a more responsible life, being less of a consumer so that I have more to give. I want to encourage anyone going to the IJM Benefit to not buy anything new. Wear what you have or borrow from a friend.
***By the way, I am also NOT wearing a red-carpet gown. The picture is just meant to be fun. :)
