Resist + Persist

You may have already seen {and might even own!} the Resist + Persist Set. But, you probably haven't seen this photos of Married & Bright Model, Jodi Hollingshead taken by Amberlee Christey Photography.

Here's what I love so much about this set:

- this print makes me so happy. look at all those adorable, beautiful women just straight chillin' on the beach

- the wrap bralette is basically my new favorite flattering and more supportive style

- the high rise undies keep all the goodies in check

- 100% of proceeds from the sale of this set benefits End the Backlog {I gave over $300 from the first launch!}

- this set embodies everything I work for and believe in; look good, feel good, and now, do good.

I first heard about End the Backlog while listening to one of my favorite podcasts, My Favorite Murder. This empowering podcast brings a bit of humor to the macabre, but also light to what is dark. The fair, inclusive, and respectful way hosts Karen and Georgia handle the telling of these crimes, is actually inspiring. Since many of the cases they cover involve violence and assault against women, End the Backlog naturally came up.

So, what is End the Backlog? End the Backlog is an initiative supported by A Joyful Heart, which seeks to get every rape kit in America tested. Most states have a backlog of untested kits that are thousands and even tens of thousands names long. Not testing them means that crimes dont get solved, and victims don't get justice.

I believe that every woman should have the opportunity to comfortably lie on the beach and relax in peace just like those ladies on this lingerie set are. While getting a kit tested can not undo the crime, it can be instrumental in the healing and recovery process. I have always been interested in true crime, but now, I want to use my talents to solve crime. I hope you'll join me.

Buy a set. Change a life. Look good, do good.
