Let’s face it, ladies: none of us are ever going to fit back into, look as good in, or find occasion to wear our prom dresses, ever again.
Since many of us are currently cleaning out our closets thanks to New Year’s Resolutions, or getting ready for World Swap Day, why not set those fancy frocks aside and donate them to teens in need?
Operation Prom, featured in this segment below with my friend Keren (director of the organization’s Atlanta branch), is just one of the amazing groups around the world, like Donate My Dress and Inside the Dream Canada, helping disadvantaged teenage girls live out one of life’s important milestones with pride and self-esteem.
Watch this video for more info on how to donate (or how to have a teen submit an application, if applicable), and if you have the means and the dress(es), please consider giving your sentimental satin, lace, or sequin numbers another chance at snagging Prom Queen:
