Stop the Clock on Child Marriage
This International Day of the Girl, Aisle Planner, The Aisle Guide, and VOW for Girls invite you to “Stop the Clock” on child marriage. Together, we can help millions of girls choose love on their own terms. Share the campaign, snap a personalized “Stop the Clock” picture, or donate today!
“The wedding industry has given me so much, it felt only right to use my voice and start giving back. Every girl has the right to a safe and healthy future, including the right to choose if, when, and whom to marry. Every girl has the right to become the woman of their dreams, but first, to be a child. That is their right too.”
– Lotte Groosman, Wedding Planner & VOW Pro Ambassador
