Hey world, Spring is quickly approaching. Although the days of High School are blips in the past for many of us, for those current High School seniors Prom is just around the corner. All of the excitement, nervousness, finding the perfect date… and of course finding the perfect dress! Maypole Studios is teaming up with Farfalla Girl (a Chicago-based non-profit coaching program for young girls) to grant prom dress wishes for several lovely ladies, and we need your help!
The Farfalla Girl mission: “We believe every young lady deserves the chance to know who they are, recognize their strengths/weaknesses and discover their capabilities. This will allow them to be confident enough to make a difference in this world and in their generation.“
This year, 6 young ladies will be receiving prom dresses and accessories. Rather than just thumbing through racks of dresses that may or may not fit right, we want to make these girls feel extra special with a dress that’s exactly what they had hoped for. So we gathered their sizes and their ideal style, and we are going shopping! Here’s where you come in…
How you can help:
1. Donate! Every dollar helps, and if you’d like to contribute to this project you can visit the Farfalla Girl website and send your gift.
(donate button is the upper right corner)
2. Do you have an extra pair of heals or maybe some jewelry you’d like to contribute? Scroll down and check out the girls’ styles and sizes and see if you have something that might work.
3. Maybe you have just the right size dress….
We have gathered sizes of all 6 girls and if you have something that might be perfect for one our ladies let us know. We appreciate any and all donations (but please keep in mind that we are trying our best to stay true to what each girl wants, not just a pile of random dresses)
