10 Jan Express Mannequins Display Specialty Clothing for Youth
DONATION: EXPRESS MANNEQUINS
LIVES IMPACTED: 100
Sharon’s Web Autism Foundation, in Fishers, IN, helps nonverbal, young adults with autism enhance their communication skills. We are mainly funded by eBay For Charity, where sellers and buyers can support our cause. We also receive donations from organizations like Good360, who allowed us to obtain mannequins from Express!
We recently held a fashion show to raise awareness for autism. Local designers, who specialize in creating affordable custom clothing for special needs children and adults, came out to show off their work. We used the Express mannequins to display these items. The event was a hit, reaching people everywhere and spreading the word about our cause. The mannequins were great because the clothing would not have looked as nice if it was just hung up or spread on a table. The mannequins really showed off just how unique the clothing was.
The designers loved the mannequins. One of them, who helped us throughout the event told us how amazing the donation was! I asked him to keep spreading the word! We don’t have a lot of funds when it comes to these events so this donation made all the difference and took our fashion show to the next level! Thank you for your generosity!
