Face it ladies – no matter what you bridesmaids tell you, most them WONT actually wear that dress again. (Even though it made your wedding day look amazing) So why not do something incredible and make someone’s prom day amazing. The Glass Slipper Project is a non-profit organization that gives away free prom dresses and accessories to high school Juniors and Seniors in the Chicagoland and surrounding areas. The Glass Slipper Project collects new and almost-new formal dresses and accessories and provides them, free of charge, to students who are unable to purchase their own prom attire. Students do not need to prove any type of financial hardship in order to get a dress from us.
The Glass Slipper Project distributes the dresses at the Glass Slipper “boutiques”each prom season, where each student receives individual assistance from a volunteer “personal shopper” as she shops for the dress of her dreams. To date, this organization has helped more than 16,000 young women attend their proms in style!
And I am certainly not telling you how to write off being a bridesmaid – but if you mail the dress in with a self addressed stamped envelope, The Glass Slipper Project will mail you back a tax receipt. And everyone wins.
