Think about your prom. Remember how special that night felt? Even now, you can feel that it was one of the highlights of your youth. Now imagine it the from view of a young girl whose family doesn’t have the money. They’re just able to pay rent and food. For a lot of girls, prom is simply more than they can afford. What if you could make prom a night they would always remember — where they could feel like a princess  even if it is for just one night?

Luckily, there’s an organization committed to helping every girl have her dream night: Donate My Dress encourages girls to donate their old prom and party dresses to others who really need them. The organization can also help with other prom essentials like shoes, jewelry and evening bags, and can even help put together a dress drive at your school!

[youtube] is the first national campaign designed to encourage girls around the country to donate their prom and special occasion dresses to those who cannot afford them for prom, sweet 16, quinceañera or formals. The site features a directory of local dress drive organizations across the U.S. that will enable girls to easily find out where they can donate or receive a dress. In addition, offers links to content on prom and quinceañera planning, hair and makeup tips, and other worthy causes.


    1. Just because you don’t have one to donate doesn’t mean your friends might not have one or two to donate. Please pass on! This can make such a difference in a girl’s life!

    1. Thanks. If you don’t have a dress you can donate (or even if you do), please pass this on to your friends. I live near several communities where kids are able to feel special for just one night and it is only possible through these dress donations.

  2. great idea!! everyone has stuff stashed in their closet that they may never wear again but it’s almost new.

    1. Absolutely! Please share with your friends. I did and found some of them had dresses they could donate as well.

  3. I love this! Thanks for writing on this important topic. I was one of those girls who needed help when it came to prom and graduation dresses, and I feel blessed to have gotten it. This organization provides wonderful opportunities for young women who are in the position I was in. I’m going to share this post now!
