Glass Slipper Project

glass slipper project
Last year I was in my sisters wedding and wore a beautiful full length strappy gown. Now the event is over, I was wondering what to do with the dress, store it, sell it or other. I heard an ad on WBBM-780 regarding the Glass Slipper Project and checked it out. From their web site,

How to make room in your closet and make prom dreams come true...

Here's your chance to help a Chicago high school student be the "Belle of the Ball" at her high school prom. The Glass Slipper Project collects new and almost-new formal dresses and accessories and provides them, free of charge, to Chicago high school students who are unable to purchase their own prom attire. We distribute the dresses at Glass Slipper "boutiques," where each student receives individual assistance from a volunteer "personal shopper" as she shops for the dress of her dreams. To date, we've helped more than 10,000 young women attend their proms in style!

They also have a Facebook page. I just boxed up the dress, earrings and an undergarment and shipped it today. I hope whoever wears it has an amazing prom night!
