Louisiana Flood Victims Special Notice

As a Louisiana-based nonprofit, the members and volunteers of 'WEEN DREAM are especially saddened by the recent deadly flooding in our state. It has always been our policy to consider late requests for costumes from anyone affected by any natural disaster or other unforeseeable event. However, due to the large number of applications we expect to receive due to the flooding disaster, we have left a special flood-victim application posted on our website to accommodate the large number of applicants. To access the special flood application, click here.

We will continue to accept applicants on a rolling basis for as long as possible, depending on our ability to provide costumes for applicants. Applications are reviewed, and costumes matched to applicants, in the order they are received.

Please note that. Although we wish we could provide costumes for all applicants, we are limited by what is donated to us each year. Accordingly, no applicant is ever guaranteed acceptance into the program, and even those who are accepted are never guaranteed to receive a costume or any particular costume. Thanks for understanding!
