Believe in Yourself, November 2016

The charity called Believe in Yourself will be coming to Rhode Island for the first time and donating new ” in style” dresses to girls in the Rhode Island area next week.

Sam Sakhalin, Founder of UsTrendy, the world’s largest Independent Fashion ecommerce site, started the Believe in Yourself Project one year ago.

Some of the objectives of charity is to combat the financial pressures that are felt on low income girls and their families to continuously stay in style and purchase new items each season along with promote positive body image and fight cyber bullying.

One of the foundation’s activities is donating dresses to underprivileged girls. The project already provided dresses to girls to wear to school dances and similar events in various states. The girls will be registered in the system and receive dresses all through out the school year for various special occasions. Future dress donations will be tied to the girls’ progress in achieving goals (whether towards improving their academics or pursuing an extracurricular interest such as music, dance, sports).

Here are some photos from a recent event: http://believeinyourself.org/washington.php.

Believe in Yourself is part of a broader initiative. During the donation Believe in Yourself brings in various influential women serve as speakers and mentors to the girls within the program (topics include positive body image, anti-cyber bullying, and motivational).
