‘Tis the season for giving! Now that the holiday spirit is in the air, I wanted to share with you a campaign that I started to piece together about a month ago, to officially launch this week. As many of you may know, I am a high school teacher by day, and as crazy as it sounds, the minute the holiday season comes to a close the young ladies at my school make a jump-start on planning their favorite season of the year: prom.
The light bulb for this idea went off one day as I was thinking of ways in which I could put my blog to great use: by using it as a platform to give back to the school district that I teach in. As a community, there are usually committees that fundraise for the holiday season, or take donations for families or students in need, but when it comes to prom, other than the “Cinderella Project” that has been offered at some local schools in my area, there is little raised for those that deserve to have the night of their lives, but cannot due to unfortunate circumstances, such as the overall cost of the event, which becomes their set-back…so I created a fundraising account through gofundme.com where I am asking for donations to help me send one fortunate lady (and her date) to the prom this coming May, 2016.
Attached is the link to my site, where you can read my description, and make a possible donation (and the more I raise, the more I can send!): Fashion Blogger Sends Girl to Prom
So please help me create a Cinderella story for one deserving young lady.
