Sweet Dreams Dresses

Official Dosomething.org Project

The Problem

There are children all over the world who go without basic necessities like food, water, shelter, and clothing every day. I want to begin by addressing the clothing issue. My goal is to do this by creating Sweet Dream Dresses, dresses that would be made out of pillowcases. I call them Sweet Dreams Dresses because, much like with hunger, a child or adult cannot concentrate not knowing if they have anything to wear the next day. It is much easier to pursue your dreams when having something to wear is not the biggest worry or concern you have.

Plan of Action

My plan is to create Sweet Dream Dresses as a high school and college organization project. Each year there will be a country that the dresses will be donated to. Because almost every house has extra pillowcases, this is an easy and inexpensive way to make a difference. My biggest goal would be to pitch the idea to bigger labels, where they can then be purchased either as donations or for personal use. Either way, the dress or money would go towards the country and making more dresses.
