At Red Dress, we obviously love fashion. But it's also important to us to give back to our communities. A lot of our donations are made privately, but here are a few organizations to which we give that we would like to publicly recognize for the good work that they do.

The Asperger/Autism Network (AANE) helps people with Asperger's or similar autism spectrum and neurodiverse profiles build meaningful, connected lives.
