Brides Against Breast Cancer

Brides Against Breast Cancer is an organization that raises money for terminal breast cancer patients wishes.  All you have to do is donate your dress, the organization holds large dress sales all over the country.  Then, they use the money from the sale to make someone's wish come true.

"Our Foundation resurrects these dresses, giving them new life as a bride's "dream gown" while the proceeds from the sale of these treasured possessions help grant wishes and memory making events for women and men who are losing their battle with breast cancer."

Want to make your wedding about charitable giving and caring for others?  Check out this link to donate in honor of your guests or to pass out donation cards at your wedding reception.  http://pinkenvelopeproject.org/pep_wedding_reception.html
 
 
Not a bride?  That's ok!  The Pink Evelope Project has lots of great ways you can help make wishes come true.  You can volunteer, donate directly to the foundation, spread awareness, or invite friends to join.  Go to:: http://pinkenvelopeproject.org/ for more information.
 
"Our mission is to grant wishes, including memory-making events, for metastatic breast cancer patients, while continuing to support, educate and increase resource awareness." (taken from the website above)
 
Why not donate your dress?  You probably can't afford to give $500 to a charity right after your wedding, but you can donate that $500 dress you just wore.  When are you going to wear it again?  Most likely never.  Give it a new life, full of love and wishes.  If you live in Hawaii, you are in luck. 
 
http://www.donttrashthedress.com/ is offering a free photo shoot in exchange for your dress.  All you have to do is set up a shoot after the wedding.  You will get great photos, amazing shots of you in your dress, and memories that will last a lifetime.   (Photographers site...http://www.idobelieve.net/ ) Go to these sites and check it out for yourself. 
 
Decide for yourself where you see your wedding dress in 5, 10, 15 years...  Making dreams come true, or dreaming of being worn again in your closet??
