We need your prom dresses!
A client of mine recently mentioned that she worked at Hillside Children’s home in Syracuse. She told me how the girls there have just a handful of prom dresses that they have been recycling over the years, passing them down year to year.
I jumped on that, because seriously, I have heard the argument so often when a girl wants a new dress and the Mom is saying, “You have so many” and the girl is saying, “But I wore them already.” We tend to forget, that sometimes some girls never have one!
I know you will be just as excited as I am about having something to do with those old prom dresses, and I was so thrilled this was brought to my attention because I KNOW there are a ton of you that will be bringing in lots of dresses from their closet!
So, I was so excited to send this out ASAP! I hope I have lots of people bringing beautiful prom dresses to give to these girls. I will have to assume, that they have many many different sizes, so whatever is hanging out in your daughters closet, snag them and bring them down, I will make sure they get to the right place!
P.S. We do need these rather quickly, so don’t delay, their prom is towards the end of May, but we need them now to get the girls all set and ready. Start bringing them down to Bijou, and again, feel good these girls will be thrilled, they’ve been recycling gowns from the past several years! I can’t wait to see how many we get, I know you guys will come through for us!!!
