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.

I know it can be quite embarrassing sometimes when you want to invite your friends on this site. But just give it a try. Tell them about the cool features we get and tell how fun you have and stuff. I am sure if they really take your opinion seriously, they won't bother about the name 'kidzworld'. In my school, everybody think that kidzworld is a cool site and stuff.  :)

I understand and agree as well. I was worried my friends would think of me differently when I first started out on this and I waited for almost a year before showing it to them. They surprisingly thought it was cool because it was like a "beginner" social media.

Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her. But i am not ready. HELP??? :e :e :e :e :e

When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.
