October is Frocktober, the intiative begun in 2007 that has gone from strength to strength over the years, all in aid of support and advocacy for the early detection of Ovarian Cancer in Australia and raising funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF).

You can read more about their mission – written in an acrostic poem, got to love that! – over here.

I joined the fundraising cause yesterday – you can visit  my page here and (hopefully) donate. I participated in Frocktober last year as well. Here’s some shots:

I’ll attempt to document the month via Instagram/Facebook (if I remember and when I can!) with the hashtag #karenfrockinoct – just to keep me honest, also, I guess.

Will you be rocking a frock in October?
