About

Our Kickstarter Campaign has ended but you can support One Dress United here.

The Freedom Dress™  – $94

100% of profit from the sale of the Freedom Dress™ will be invested in programs that empower the most economically vulnerable women in the world, starting with those being served by Jasper House Haiti.

The dress is a classic black shirt dress, made of luxurious Tencel® fabric. It features branded tab sleeves, high-low hemline, and matching sash. It serves as a beautiful backdrop for the multitude of accessories handmade by women around the world and offered by One Dress United. Inspired. Versatile. Sustainable. The Freedom Dress™ has an easy elegance that will likely make it your go-to wardrobe essential.

NOTE: Dress available in sizes XS-XL. You will be able to specify your size, based on dress specifications, at the close of the campaign, when we send out our backer survey. Exchanges will be honored.

Halo "Angel Investor" Bracelet – $44

About Her Worth International.

A 501(c)3 Nonprofit, established April 2016

The mission of Her Worth International is to connect, coach and commission a global community of women to invest their lives for maximum impact. The founder of Her Worth is Rachel Rose Nelson, a wife and mother with 20 years experience as an independent creative director and entrepreneur. Rachel is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation at George Fox Evangelical Seminary near her home in Portland, Oregon.

OUR VISION

To be clear, Kickstarter pledges will not be donated, but rather invested in the production of our Freedom Dress™. After this campaign funds production, profit from the sale of the dress will be donated to ministries empowering women around the world, starting with Jasper House Haiti.

In other words, this campaign is the start of something bigger. Our long range goal is to build our own small, employee-owned manufacturing business to produce the dresses and grant growing opportunities for business ownership to women in developing countries. But the vision starts here. With you. Please join us in bringing the vision to life.

Risks and challenges

Every creative act comes with risk and challenge. Some challenges we will face if this campaign is funded include:

1. Selecting the right ethical manufacturing partners, based on the quantities ordered during this campaign. We have researched several mills and manufacturers both here in the US and overseas. Depending on final numbers some might be better choices than others. We are committed to visiting facilities in person and screening for both high quality and ethical standards.

2. Assembling and shipping the gift packages in time for holiday shipments. I have mitigated this risk by only making 100 packages available and having all materials on hand and ready to go once the campaign reaches its minimum target.

To mitigate these factors as much as possible we have gathered a phenomenal team, completed much of the creative process already and feel poised to tackle the next phase of bringing this project to life.
