“I loved how supportive everyone was. It made me feel special”

“I loved the fact that I could feel like a princess. I’ve never felt that way before.”

“What I loved about this experience is…having a Fairy Godmother. No matter how shy I was/am they were always cool and enthusiastic”

Be a part of this fun and heartwarming program!  Sign up to be a Personal Shopper (aka Fairy Godmother) or a Seamstress. Personal Shoppers are matched with VIPs to help them find the perfect dress. If you have sewing skills, we’re in desperate need of volunteer seamstresses too.
