Prom Charities Come to Your Rescue!

Prom may be one of the most important events in high school, but disadvantaged teens aren't able to go cuz they can't afford to buy a dress or tuxedo. But prom charities are making sure everyone is able to attend their prom by helping out. Find out how!

The Princess Project

If you can't afford a dress, The Princess Project can help you out with new, or nearly new dresses and accessories like jewelry, purses, wraps and shoes to match! The best thing about it is that it's absolutely free! Head on over to The Princess Project to find out more about their Dress Giveaway event in San Francisco.

The Glass Slipper Project

Non-profit organizations like The Princess Project have been popping up across North America for the past few years and you can now find one in almost every city. There's The Glass Slipper Project in Chicago, which was featured on Oprah, Fairy Godmothers in Philadelphia, The Ruby Room in Seattle, and The Cinderella Project in Vancouver.

Inside the Dream

Inside the Dream is a Canadian charity that provides prom gear to both girls AND guys! They've got dresses for all the ladies, as well as suits, tuxedos, dress shirts, ties, cuff links and even cologne - all at no cost! Get more info on Inside the Dream.

Limos for Lives

Limos for Lives is a fundraising project organized by The Starfish Children's Fund. It isn't about tuxes and gowns, but about giving up a small luxury - like riding a limo to your prom - and using that money to help under-privileged kids in third world countries. Three high school seniors named Sophie Cole, Brittany McCann and Katie Funk started this project back in 2004 to raise money to open a school for blind children in Calcutta, India. It's been a huge success, as the girls have raised more than $175,000! Check out The Starfish Children's Fund to find out more about Limos for Lives.

Where Will You Buy Your Prom Dress?

  • I'm going to get a dress from The Princess Project!
  • I'll buy it at the most expensive boutique in the city.
  • I'm wearing my sister's hand-me-down gown.
  • I'll try to find a cheap, but pretty dress at the mall.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

CoolerThanMyself
I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
