If you haven’t already heard, this semester Borrowed by Design has partnered with a non-profit company called Girls Inc. of Greater Atlanta. Girls Inc. works to inspire underprivileged girls to be strong, smart, and bold through stem education, literacy programs and confidence workshops. One of the ways that Borrowed by Design is hoping to help make a difference within this organization is by encouraging prom dress donations this season to benefit the young ladies in the program. Together, we hope to give countless girls the chance to look beautiful on their prom night even when they can't afford it.
On March 3rd, BBD is putting on a Trunk show/ Dress Drive at Lambert High School. We hope to promote Girls Inc. and all they stand for, while also giving Lambert students an outlet to get rid of their old prom dresses and while putting them into the hands of some girls in need.
We also hope to notify Lambert students of the service we offer. Prom dress rental is astoundingly more affordable and smart when it comes to events where you end up only wearing the dress one time. This would help benefit students by allowing them to make extra money from renting out their dresses if they choose not to donate them, and also to help them save money on their upcoming prom expenses. Unfortunately, most students are not even aware that renting a dress for prom is even an option.
At our trunk show we will set up a table at the front of the school, with a rack of dresses and boxes to receive dress donations. We are planning to offer refreshments and also answer any questions students may have. We also plan to leave a donation box for a few days after our event, as well as after Lambert Prom in May, with a planned pick up date in mind.
We are so incredibly excited to visit Lambert and help Girls Inc. make a difference this Prom Season. Does this sound like something you would like to see at your school? Let us know! Borrowed by Design would love to make the trip to your high school or college campus, before or after your prom and formals.
