As Halloween approaches many people already are planning a unique and fun costume for the holiday. Kelsey Meeks, founder of ‘WEEN DREAM, is seeing to it that children all over the country get the opportunity to dress up and celebrate.
Meeks, a native of Pensacola, Fla., graduated from The University of Southern Mississippi in 2005 with a degree in broadcast journalism and Spanish. Following graduation she moved to New Orleans where she earned a degree from Tulane Law School in 2010. Today she resides in New Orleans and works with Wall, Bullington & Cook, LLC, an oil and gas boutique firm.
It was during her law school days that Meeks was hit with the realization that people had many old costumes collecting dust in their closets, while others would love to have their own costumes, but could not afford them. This thought led to the creation of ‘WEEN DREAM, a national non-profit organization that collects costume donations and delivers them to children living in poverty, facing illnesses and those affected by natural disasters all across the U.S.
