An Opportunity for Giving

The Cheyenne River Youth Project® Prepares for the Annual "Passion for Fashion" on Saturday, March 7

Here's an opportunity for giving I ran across this morning. The link is here:

It's a call for donations of formal wear, hair accessories, make up and such, for high school girls from from the Cheyenne River Reservation in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. These girls, who may not have the funds for such items, will attend an event THIS UPCOMING SATURDAY, 3/7, where they will get to choose among the items to wear in their Prom this year.

I am donating several hair accessories from my shop at and hope they will add to the magic and memories of prom night for some of these girls.

If you would like more information, or to donate, click that link above, and follow through by clicking the "Read More" link on that page. I've exerpted a bit below for quick reference.

Note: The event is on short notice for donations to arrive, so act quickly. Though they would like to have items received by Thursday, 3/5, they are able to accept later arrivals. Some of the girls won't be able to attend the Saturday event, and they can also save the items for next year as this is an ongoing program.


How You Can Support CRYP’s 2008 Passion for Fashion

If you would like to support the Cheyenne River Youth Project’s Passion for Fashion program this year, please considering contributing any of the following:
• New/Gently Used Prom Dresses (Sizes 4-26)
• Dress Accessories (Examples: Purses,
Wraps, Scarves)
• Formal Shoes
• Jewelry
• Hair Accessories & Care Products
• Facial, Manicure & Pedicure Supplies
• Makeup and Bath Sets
• Gift Cards
• Cash Donations

CRYP usually makes a variety of additional purchases for the Passion for Fashion event, including makeup, food and some accessories, so every contribution helps. Please donations to CRYP at P.O. Box 410, East Lincoln Street, Eagle Butte, SD 57625.

To make a financial contribution, either send mail to the above address or simply visit the youth project’s recently redesigned Web site at, click “Help CRYP” and select
“Monetary Donations.”

To ensure that CRYP staff and volunteers have time to prepare for the Passion for Fashion event on March 7, please send all packages and contributions by March 5. The youth project also will gladly accept late donations, since many teens who are unable to attend the event itself will pick up their dresses at a later date. Donations for next year are welcome as well!
