Pretty Dress Project - How to Be HealthyHow Healthy are You?

How many dresses do you have in your closet? 10? 15? 20? You probably have dresses for work, church, dinner, or a special night out on the town. While you may indeed have several pretty dresses, you only have one body to wear them on. The Pretty Dress Project is all about taking care of your one and only body, so that you can continue to wear your pretty dresses.

According to the Center for Disease Control, an estimated 65% of U.S. adults ages 20 years and older are either overweight or obese, defined as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 or higher. In addition, more than 60% of the U.S. adult population does not engage in the recommended amount of physical activity and 25% are not active at all.

The Pretty Dress Project is a 4 weeks healthy living challenge designed to be fun, inspirational, but more important a practical way to make a healthy change in your life.

The goal of the Pretty Dress Project is to impact individual behavior and to incorporate positive lifestyle changes that will continue even after the 4 weeks challenge is over. Hopefully you will benefit in the form of healthier eating habits, increased physical activity levels, and a positive attitude.

So grab a group of 5-10 of your good friends, family members and/or co-workers and e-mail me at helena@savvywomanblog.com for more information on how to participate in the challenge.

Pretty Dress Project-Wear Your Pretty Dress on Your Best Body

Join the Pretty Dress Project:

*A portion from the sale of each t-shirt will be donated to charity.

We all know that non-profit organizations are very important in and to our communities, country, and to the world. They fill a void, most often reaching out to our most vulnerable-our children, our elderly, the homeless, those who may be suffering from illnesses, and the list can go on.

For those reasons we have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the t-shirts to four different non-profits:

Bright Pink – Bright Pink is on a mission to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age.

Center Recreation And Family Training (C.R.A.F.T. Inc.) – The mission of the C.R.A.F.T. Organization is to develop and implement programs directed towards building a stronger, more productive African-American community.

Dress for Success-Chicago – The purpose of Dress for Success-Chicago is to offer long-lasting solutions that enable women to break the cycle of poverty.

South Suburban Family Shelter  – South Suburban Family Shelter offers services for victims of domestic violence and accepts clients regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, or age.

We will periodically change the non-profits so that we may share our resources with other worthy organizations.
