Country music star Taylor Swift recently donated her prom dress to an organization that encourages girls to donate their prom and special occasion dresses to those who cannot afford their own.
The dress made over $1,200 at auction for the charity website DonateMyDress.org, a site that features a directory of local dress drive organizations across the U.S. that enables girls to easily find out where they can donate a dress or receive one.
“I chose to give away this prom dress because I wore it once and loved it!” said Swift. “To keep it around, hanging there all by itself and lonely in my closet, never to be worn again seemed a little pointless. I want another girl somewhere to feel good in it and have a great prom night because of this dress.”
DonateMyDress.org is part of the Hearst Teen Network, which includes the industry’s leading teen brands — CosmoGIRL!, Seventeen and TEEN — as well as MisQuinceMag.com, MyPromStyle.com, eCRUSH.com and eSPIN.com.
