Dance Fairies is registered 501(c)(3), a non-profit organization founded by a passionate young dancer. Our organization's sole mission is to spread the joy of dance to aspiring young dancers in the community and around the world. Over five years ago, we embarked on our journey, and in that short time, we were able to collect and re-distribute thousands of gently used costumes, leotards, and all types of dance attire to aspiring dancers near and far. After the performances and competitions, dance costumes usually end up in closets taking up space and collecting dust. This is where the Dance Fairies organization comes in! Not only are we giving those costumes a second chance to sparkle on stage again, but we are sharing our love of dance with those less fortunate and also reducing the impact on environmental resources. The production of textiles is exhaustive on resources like land, water, and energy throughout the manufacturing and transportation process and is a significant contributor to pollution in waterways. Therefore, our "reuse and reduce" efforts have a direct positive impact on young aspiring dancers and global landfills. Not only is reusing costumes cost-effective and good for the environment, but it sometimes can add extra meaning and significance to a performer when they are able to dance wearing the same costume as a dancer who generously donated it.
Dance Fairies has made a commitment this year to collect and redistribute 10,000 dance costumes to aspiring dancers. We are well on our way to reaching that goal but we need your help! Help us reach more children this year with the gift of beautiful dancewear! Our goal is to raise $10,000 this year to expand the reach of Dance Fairies. Shipping costs remain our number one expense, and the most limiting factor in our ability to deliver dance costumes to children around the United States and the world. Please consider donating to help us defray the mailing cost and get these costumes to their new homes. Bringing smiles to dancers everywhere means everything to us! We would be so grateful if you joined us in spreading the joy of dance by donating today! Thank you for your support!
