According to USAtoday.com (2012) families spend between $1,000 to $2,000 during the prom season on everything from the perfect dress to the dinner for two. Want to know what the family spends the most on? If you guessed the prom dress, then you are absolutely right. Your question may be why the prom dress, but if you’ve been to the prom you know that the first thing you notice about the girl is her dress. The color, the cut, the jewels, the length, etc. those are the things you notice and those are the things that tell about the girls personality and fashion sense.
A girl (or rather her parents) can spend an average of $231-$1,000+ on a dress just to impress her peers and feel absolutely beautiful, so finding a dress to match her emotions and personality at half the cost is a HUGE blessing!
Well recently, a humble young lady from a small rural city, called Belle Glade in south Florida got better than that! She got a FREE dress brought from no other than famous Basketball Wife, Evelyn Lozada all thanks to a tweet she made.
I wrote about the story earlier this week when Evelyn Lozada posted on her blog a beautiful letter from the young lady I did a kind deed for, Rose Amilcar.
I had the opportunity to interview Rose who told me about her tweet, her friendship with Lozada, and how her prom was a night to remember. Read for yourself.
