Prom Charities Come to Your Rescue!

Charities like The Glass Slipper Project provide free prom dresses and accessories for girls who can't afford them.

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.

Friends is some ONE you can trust and tell them your secrets. Have you ever heard the phrase  "Two is BETTER than one." Well not this phrase is always true. Some people prefer to have themselves as their own company. Others prefer to have up to more than 3 meaning a group. Not always there is going to be up to 1. some people are not very socials maybe because they feel lonely, do not want to share secrets, don't like talking, scared others might just make fun of them. Well a friend TO ME is someone:  1. Someone who stands up for me 2. respects me doesn't fool around  3. doesn't make fun of me and tells the truth(honesty) 4. always by my see no matter what 5. nice to me and not mean 6. Hangouts and talks to me  Not always these things are TRUE, I mean to me i don't agree to all of this but to some. COMMENT BELOW!! WHICH ONES ARE TRUE!!! THANKS for you time!:)
