"Giggey Girl Gowns" is Open for Business!

My name is Kassidy Giggey and I am a Brewer High School student and the founder of a brand new DonateMyDress.org branch called “Giggey Girl Gowns”. We run a dress donation program through my church, The Community of Christ Church in Brewer, Maine. I have never had to experience such a hard circumstance. Someone in my family has always been there to provide for me, even when it comes to dresses. Recently while looking for prom dresses, I found that the dress I wanted was going to be around $280.00. Luckily, I have a job and will be able to afford the dress. When thinking about how many people don't have jobs right now, and have parents that are out of work, it really made me think about how many other people wouldn't be able to afford a dress. That inspired me to create a place where girls could come and feel like they don't have to worry about not being able to get dressed up for prom. This includes any other formal event as well!

Starting on February 22rd, 2011 and going through March 29th 2011, we will be collecting new or carefully worn dresses for this cause. Every Tuesday night from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and every Saturday afternoon from 1:00-3:00 p.m., we will be at the Community of Christ Church, 128 Pierce Road Brewer, Maine to collect dresses. Then at a later date girls in need will be able to come and collect dresses for their formal event!

We want to spread the word about this organization as wide as possible; first off so that we can get dresses, but secondly so that we can hand as many girls in needs of dresses, those gowns. We need the help of local citizens and businesses to help provide us with dresses, supplies and services. We also need to help of our local schools to spread the word to girls who may need this help, and girls who may have dresses. We would love to have your support in these efforts in any way if possible. Just think of all of the girls we could help if we could just spread the news of Giggey Girl Gowns.
