It’s that time of year again, Prom time!
Did you know an American family with a high school student spends an average of $1,078 on prom, leaving one out of every four American families unable to send their student to prom? Crazy right?
Hayden Panettiere and DoSomething.org have launched their first ever prom dress donation campaign called Prom for All. The campaign rallies students to organize dress drives at their schools and in their communities and drop the dresses off at a local collection site through June 22, 2012. The dresses are then passed on to girls within that community who are in need of a dress. Seams (get it?) easy enough, right?
Everyone who participates in the campaign and gets their friends involved is eligible to win a $2,000 scholarship. Other prizes include a night on the town in a limo!
