Donate Prom Dresses – Why should you consider donating prom dresses? Each year, thousands of female students spend hundreds of dollars for the arguably the most important dress of their 17 years life. However, the sad thing about this is the fact that most of these dresses are only worn once, and then they go to the farthest part of the cabinet.
For some, buying the expensive dress might not be a problem whatsoever, but there are many other unfortunate families that simply cannot afford to spend the hard-earned money only for a dress. What’s more, how come, in this prom attire, it can be so different between male students and female students? As you know, most of the guys wearing a tuxedo that go to the prom got their tux rented from somewhere. Why can’t the ladies do the same?
In fact, wouldn’t it better if you can actually help fellow female students who unfortunately come from a low-income family to have something decent to wear to the prom? If you feel the same way as I do, then read on, because we’re going to tell you about the organizations and programs that might be able to facilitate your good will.
