DonateMyDress.org 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 the costly experience of going to their prom, sweet 16, quinceañera or formal on their own. It is the first network of dress drive organizations across the U.S. that collect and distribute dresses to girls.
In March 2009, DonateMyDress.org hosted a celebrity dress auction on Charity Folks, auctioning off dresses from Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Ashley Greene, the organization’s spokesperson. The auction raised $2,000 for the Purple Dress Awards — grants given to the chapters within the DonateMyDress.org network that have the most promising growth potential and well-planned goals.
