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.

This is a good idea to donate dresses which we don’t wear and it can be useful for some other girl. I have 2-3 dresses which i don’t wear now & they are in a good condition. I want to donate those dresses for such girls. Hopefully they will like it :)

RECENTLY DONATED 2 BEAUTIFUL, ALREADY CLEANED GOWNS.
BROUGHT TO JORDONS. LEFT FEELING A LOSS. WOULD HAVE
APPRECIATED THEM TAKING MY NAME AND SENDING ME A BIG
THANK YOU!!! BUT THEY DID NOT!!
WONT DONATE AGAIN!!
EACH DRESS WAS VERY SENTIMENTAL TO ME!!
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?
