As Summer comes to an end, so does wedding season. For those of you who were in one of them, it is time to put that bridesmaid’s dress in the closet. Perhaps you are one of those people who have a couple dresses already hanging up. I know that the bride told you, “It’s great, because you can always wear it again!” Yea…well on the outside chance that you won’t ever wear it again, there is a great way to make some room in your closet and not feel guilty about getting rid of that bridesmaid dress from your close friend/family member’s wedding.

DonateMyDress.org is a nonprofit that works to help disadvantaged teenage girls enjoy those special events that otherwise might be too expensive. This national campaign is part of the Hearst Teen Network, which includes CosmoGirl, Seventeen, TeenMag, and MisQuinceMag. By encouraging girls and women to donate their dresses from proms, weddings and other special occasions, DonateMyDress.org can get them to girls who can’t afford a nice dress for their prom, sweet 16, quinceañera or formals.

The site features a directory of local dress drive organizations across the U.S., information on upcoming events, special promotions and a photo gallery of real girls donating and receiving dresses. There are also links to information on prom and quinceañera planning, hair and makeup tips, and other related topics. Be warned that these “helpful hint articles” are links to Hearst Teen Network’s different magazine websites. The information is legitimate and helpful, but it does take you to their for profit sites.

Many stars not only support this cause, but also donated their own clothing. Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Ashley Greene are just a few. If you don’t recognize all their names, don’t worry, neither did I. This organization is for teenage girls after all.

If you have some fancy dresses hanging in your closet (that you just have not found the right occasion to wear again) you might want to check out their website and learn a little more about the great work they are doing.
