When you’re in your final year of high school, I bet the only thing that most girls and some guys look forward to is their Matric dance/farewell. You know that night where you faff and celebrate your entire schooling journey. The one day in the 12 years of schooling where girls goes all out to do their nails, have their makeup done, their hair styled into that celebrity clipping from a magazine and heading off to your seamstress with a detailed picture in your head of the dress that you want. Sadly to many that is only a dream and with a small act of kindness you can change all that and YOU can make that dream a reality.
I always receive such love from Cadbury PS and when they approached me to participate in the #PSGiveADress campaign, I jumped at the opportunity and have now collected five dresses to donate. I think it’s such an amazing campaign where one can make a girl’s dream come true by donating something that you once wore and made you happy, to someone else. Sometimes we take the little things for granted such a matric ball dress. Mine has been hanging on my clothing rail in a bag since 2009 and now that I am able to design and sew matric dance dresses myself, I question my choice of dress design. The very same dress that could give another girl her very own Cinderella moment. That is why I decided to get so involved in this campaign so that I can change the way I think and really try and make a difference however much cliche that sounds.
If you like me would like to donate a dress, or two or a few please do so.
“Consumers all over South Africa are encouraged to sort through their wardrobes for pre-loved dresses to donate. Dresses can be dropped off at participating The Space clothing stores nationwide between the 11th of July and the 14th of August.
The Space stores can be located in Kwa Zulu Natal at the Gateway Theatre of Shopping and The Pavilion. In Johannesburg at The Zone at Rosebank, Clearwater Mall and the Mall of Africa. In Pretoria at Woodlands Mall and Brooklyn Mall. If you’re in Cape Town you can drop your dress off at Canal Walk or Cavendish Square and Baywest Mall in Port Elizabeth.”
If you can’t do that, you can even post your dresses to me and I will take it to Canal Walk or Cavendish. For more info on the Cadbury P.S Give a dress campaign visit www.facebook/cadburyPSor follow our their Twitter page on @CadburyPSBar. You can also visit www.pscadbury.co.za
