This time of year for many Juniors and Seniors in High School usually means one thing, Prom is just around the corner. I’m sure you’ve already figured it out by that first sentence but this week’s entry has to do with Prom. Junior and Senior year I was always so excited to go to the mall and pick out the dress that I would be wearing for one of the most important nights in my high school history. However, this is not the case for many girls who cannot afford to buy a prom dress. Because of this, people, boutiques, and organizations all throughout the United States have stepped up and decided to collect used prom dresses so that others can wear them again. I know for most people the dress gets worn one night and then tucked away in the closet to possibly never again see the “night lights”. You can now donate your dress so that someone else can feel just as beautiful as you did the night you wore your special dress. I am including a site that offers stores in most states that collect prom dresses, and other accessories, and then also some sites that I found for different cities. If you have already donated your dresses, that’s awesome, now go and spread the word ... guys be sure to tell all your female friends! Let’s spread the joy by donating our prom dresses so others can have a special evening as well. Happy thoughts of walking down the !
Until next week,
