Give your bridesmaid dress a nobler second life

Any woman over the age of 25 has one of these beauties collecting dust in her closet. You didn't like it to begin with but you can't throw it out because you are clinging to the belief that you will wear it again. Get over it. It ain't happening. Instead, put your dress to good use by donating it to an organization that provides dresses to teens in need. Let's just hope they Pretty In Pink it and at least cut off the ass-enlarging bow.

Saw the below on DailyCandy LA. Erin and I tried to mention the Cinderella Project in our book, but like dorks we got the URL wrong! Anywho, this is sorta confusing because the link goes to "A Place Called Home" but the Cinderella Project is an organization that collects these dresses year round. Maybe they are connected? I couldn't find the donation info on the APCH site, but you can send your dress to the address below or donate to The Cinderella Project

Here is the DC listing:
GIVE
The Cinderella Project
What: A Place Called Home is collecting dresses for teens in Compton and Long Beach to wear to prom and graduation.
Why: Always a bridesmaid; never have to look at that dress again.
When: By May 3.
Where: Send dresses to Arlene Rosin, c/o The Cinderella Project, 1966 E. Via Arado, Rancho Dominguez, CA 90220.

Hi there! I saw the Daily Candy post too, so I decided to do some more research for my wedding planning blog (www.iventsLA.blogspot.com).

The link for the LA-based Cinderella project is: http://la.oodle.com/donate/charity/1201

www.cinderellaproject.net is based in D.C.
