Proms are an exciting time for most young adults as it can be an event that they’ve looked forward to for a very long time. However, some families have a hard time making the evening happen at all. Thanks to a Birmingham student this is changing.
The general costs of a prom involve the following:
Prom dresses – You could pay anywhere between $100 to $400.
Prom tickets – $20 to $250 depending on where the prom is located.
Hair, Makeup, and Nails – $30 to $275. A big range but it depends on more than one factor.
Then there’s the “limo” and pre-dinner if your prom doesn’t provide a meal and other things I am probably forgetting. Hey! It’s been a while since I had a child around prom age. 😉
Well, where am I going with this? To let you know that you don’t have to break the bank when it comes to getting a prom gown. Thanks to Danielle Lutz, a 16-year-old student from Birmingham, who founded a non-profit organization called ReWEARable all girls are getting a chance to make memories they thought they wouldn’t. Through this non-profit, Danielle is able to give away dresses, accessories, and shoes. What a blessing this is to a girl who might not be able to attend due to the cost involved.
Danielle started this non-profit by posting on social media and emailing people as well to get donations. She’s also received help from local stores in Birmingham and even Marshall’s in Detroit.
Some of the dresses collected have been pre-worn and others are brand new with the tags still on them! Danielle has worked with other organizations for 2 years before founding ReWEARable. She loves to give to others and the world is a better place because of her being in it.
Oh, and Danielle has yet to attend a prom. She will this year and it will be her first one. What a heart this girl has. Great job Danielle Lutz and congratulations to her parents who must be very proud of her.
