donate your old prom dress at jordan’s furniture

i realize this news story is regional (if you live in new england), but it is such a great idea that i couldn’t help but spread the word:

jordan’s furniture has recently announced that they will be teaming up with anton’s cleaners once again to provide prom dresses for teenage girls who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford them.  the program couldn’t be easier.  just bring your gently-used, wearable prom dress to any jordan’s furniture by april 14, 2009.  the dresses will be collected at jordan’s and then cleaned by anton’s cleaners.  the program utilizes local schools and social services to distribute the dresses.  the program is appropriately titled: belle of the ball.

what an amazing opportunity to help a teenage girl create a lasting memory and remove some clutter from your closet at the same time.

      Have you asked if they would? You could have opted out.
      On the other hand, isn’t it enough to know that you made it possible for two young girls to have a wonderful evening?
      And – even more interesting to someone who’s given up a bunch of sentimental stuff – has giving them up given you a bad time for a longer period?
