Women Helping Women

This charity provides sweet 16, prom queens, and other special occasion dresses to girls who otherwise couldn't afford to buy their own.
Just take your old bridesmaid or prom dress that has been hanging in your closet, (I know you were going to alter and wear them again) and donate to this charity. You know you are never going to wear it again.
The site features a directory of local dress drive organizations across the U.S. that will enable girls to easily find out where in their local markets they can donate a dress or receive one.
Saks Fifth Avenue is a collection site and when you donate your dress you will receive a 20 percent off coupon to be used toward a new dress.


At a time when the average cost of a wedding is $28,082, and the average dress is $1,075, according to the Brides.com American Wedding Study 2009, and designer gowns sell for as much as $10,000 or more, a growing number of brides on a budget are looking to save money and be eco-friendly by renting or buying used dresses and other items for their weddings.
Whether they are billed as “once worn,” “pre-owned,” or “lightly loved,” Web sites like woreitonce, oncewed and savethedress offer listings for hundreds of dresses at substantial savings, in all sizes, styles and prices.

Dress for Success relies on the support of people like you who are committed to helping disadvantaged women take charge of their lives. It is both easy and incredibly rewarding to get involved! You can make a substantial and lasting difference in a woman's life. All donations to Dress for Success are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
