Looking for volunteer opportunities and need to earn service hours? Here is your chance!

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 four years ago, we embarked on our journey, and in that short time, we were able to collect and redistribute 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.

Unfortunately, the 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. We have boxes full of beautiful costumes that are waiting to be shipped. But we need YOUR help!

Are you looking for a chance to volunteer and help those in need? Our "Adopt a Box, Make a Difference" fundraising campaign is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those young dancers. It costs around $50 to $250 to send one box of costumes, depending on the weight and destination. Would you be willing to adopt a box by covering a shipping cost and helping those costumes reach little children in need who are anxiously awaiting those costumes? We would love your help and support!

So what exactly can you do?

  1. Contact us at contact@dancefairies.org, and we will help you select and adopt the box, or even two if you like.
  2. Get creative with ideas on how to raise funds to cover the cost of your adopted box. The "Adopt a Box, Make a Difference" campaign is a great way for young people to show their leadership skills! Be proactive, reach out to your friends, and connect with other like-minded young people or members of your community.
  3. The monetary donation of your raised funds to our organization can be easily made through Venmo @dance_fairies, Paypal contact@dancefairies.org, or at Go Fund Me by following this link https://www.gofundme.com/f/j44cpc-sharing-the-love-of-dance.
  4. As soon as we ship your chosen box, you will receive the tracking information, photos, and information about the dance school that will receive that package. If you wish, you can send us information about yourself and maybe even a photo of you and a short letter to the children who will be receiving that box.

The success of Dance Fairies' mission depends on YOU and YOUR IDEAS! Your efforts will bring happiness to others, but you will receive the biggest satisfaction knowing that you have brought smiles to their faces. Remember, WE ALL HAVE MAGIC INSIDE US! That magic just needs an avenue to express itself. We need YOU to help us create the magic of sharing the joy and love of DANCE!

For every $10 you will raise during this campaign and donate to the Dance Fairies organization, you will receive one volunteer service hour. The certificate can be emailed directly to you, your school, or the inquiring organization. For example, if you raise $50, you will be awarded six service hours.

For more information about this and other volunteer opportunities that are offered by the Dance Fairies organization, please contact us at contact@dancefairies.org or visit our website at www.DanceFairies.org.

Thank you and we are looking forward to hearing from you!

About DANCE FAIRIES

Mission Statement

Dance Fairies is registered 501(c)(3), a non-profit organization that collects gently used and new dance wear, including costumes and shoes of all kinds, and donates them to aspiring dancers in need around the world in hope of providing them with the access to proper dance attire to follow their dreams and dance passion.

Description

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.

Over five years ago, since we embarked on our journey, 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. Helping others is what truly matters to us, and we endeavor to do more, not only for the children of our community but also for children around the world, especially those in Ukraine today. Being able to help children who come from many different backgrounds and have experienced many hardships, including emotional and physical trauma, and provide them with an opportunity to express themselves through dance is one of our goals.
