Believe in Yourself, is donating dresses in LA

The Charity called Believe in Yourself (we have written about this wonderful charity before) will be coming to Los Angeles for the first time and donating brand new ” in style” dresses to girls in the LA  area to wear to their upcoming school Valentine’s Day dances.

The founder of UsTrendy, the world’s largest Independent Fashion ecommerce site started the foundation one year ago. He recently launched a site for the foundation: www.believeinyourself.org

Some of the objectives of this 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. “We have already provided dresses to girls to wear to school dances and similar events in various states. The girls will be registered in our system and receive dresses all through out the school year for various special occasions,” says Founder Sam Sisakhti. 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. Each girl who wants to receive a dress is entered into a system where they are then tracked to see their progress, whether towards improving their academics or pursuing an extracurricular interest.

Believe in Yourself is part of a broader initiative. The charity brings in Mentors and speakers to motivate the girls to believe in themselves. These mentors also provide tips if the girls are experiencing a negative body image or bullying of any kind, and they counsel the girls to help them achieve their dreams and goals.
