Mission Statement

My Favorite Outfit’s mission is to provide two basic needs to underprivileged girls in Chicago: clothing and confidence. We create a personalized cost-free shopping experience so every girl knows she is worth celebrating.

Description

My Favorite Outfit empowers underprivileged girls in grades 2-12 through self-esteem building and clothing donations in our signature pop-up boutiques. These pop-up boutiques are temporary stores built in the classroom of a school, and the goal of each is to increase girls’ self-esteem so they preform better in school. Girls have to earn the opportunity to attend a pop-up through good grades, high attendance, and a positive attitude.

The work we do is critical because as girls' self-esteem plummets, so does their academic success. In fact, by middle school 70% of girls are dissatisfied with their body, and once in high school the majority of girls report having low self-esteem. We believe all girls have the right to preform at their full potential, and 91% of students who attend a pop-up report feeling more confident.
