Donate Your Wedding Gowns and Formal Dresses to Haiti

Renting wedding gowns to brides for their big day provides income for Mdm. Bennison in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In addition to renting out wedding dresses, she also sells formal dresses.

We’ve given dresses to her a number of times, but it’s been a while so we decided it’s time for another shipment to expand her inventory.

Here’s what we’re looking for.

Formal Gowns

  • They must be current. No 1980s stuff that you find in the back of your closet. Life in Haiti might be a lot different that life in the US, but Haitian women have access to TV and Internet and they know what’s in and what isn’t. If you think it’s too out of style to wear, they probably will too.
  • We’d love a set of bridesmaid dresses if anyone has multiples of the same dress.

Wedding Gowns

  • Specifically larger sized wedding gowns (size 14+). Though we’ll take smaller ones if they are current.

We’ll be accepting donations throughout the month of February. Thanks for considering helping us out in this way.
