Dignity U Wear, a nonprofit group that distributes new clothes to the needy, will receive the proceeds from "Memphis Blues -- Midsummer Night Clues," a trivia contest at Christian Brothers High School on Sunday from 6-9 p.m.
So why can't needy people just wear hand-me-downs? The folks at Dignity U Wear believe new clothing instills self-esteem. The group was founded in 2000 by philanthropist and Holocaust survivor Henri Landwirth.
"I know what it means not to have clothes -- to be stripped of dignity and to give up all hope" says Henri. "And when I see children suffering indignities, I know we have to help."
And FYI: the organization has a pretty impressive board of directors -- journalist Walter Cronkite, astronaut John Glenn, and primate welfare proponent Jane Goodall.
