What is it about giving that makes us all feel so good? Whether spending an afternoon with kids making crafts, reading to the elderly, or just baking goods for a bake sale. While your parents may be looking at the price tag of your dream prom dress shaking their heads – sway them with a charitable idea like one of these below.
Organize – or just participate in – a dress collection. Take all of your formal gowns from years past and donate them to charity or a school in need of dresses. There’s currently a drive running at the Livingston Public Library, in Livingston New Jersey if you’d like to send your old dresses there!
Sell your old dress to a consignment shop. Not only will you be getting a little extra to help pay for your new dress, but you’ll also be much closer to paying for your 2012 prom dress much easier.
Make it a group effort – take selling your dress a step further and have a spring fashion sale with your friends. Get all your old, but still cute clothes together to sell as a group. You can use the funds to either help pay for your dresses and a limo – or donate the money to a charity. Or sell them to each other- so you’ll all get a new wardrobe out of the deal.
Being fashionable also means acting charitably. Your favorite designs and dresses may be someone’s new dreams when you donate your dress!
