I’m a firm believer that every girl should have a prom dress that makes her feel beautiful. Maybe it’s because I’ve watched John Hughes’ Pretty in Pink too many times. (You know, the one where Molly Ringwald’s character, Andie Walsh, makes her own gorgeous dress for prom using her friend Iona’s old prom dress and a thrift shop dress her father bought for her?)
Anyway, it’s prom season. DoSomething.org is partnering with a style app called Pose to collect and donate gently used dresses to girls in need (and those who don’t have the sewing and style skills to whip up their own prom dress like Andie Walsh). The program is called Prom For All. It includes a cool interactive map of the U.S. that you can use to find prom-dress drop-off sites where you live. Why not donate a fabulous dress or two from the back of your closet to help a high-school girl have her own “Pretty in Pink” prom?
