Stories of Kindness from Around the World

160 Dresses

--by songinmyheart, posted Feb 28, 2013

We are five women who wanted to make a difference in the life of our local girls. 

There are many needy families in our area and the winter formal dances were coming up soon. Lots of families would struggle to afford a nice fancy dress for their girl to go to the dance in. So, we reached out to our community and asked for donations of formal dresses in all sizes for this worthy cause. 
Little did I expect 160 dresses! 
Tomorrow we make them available so the girls can come by and pick one out. We also have high heels, purses, and jewelry that were donated! 
If it goes well we plan to do the same again next year!
160 dresses will equal much more than 160 smiles!
