Giggey Girl Gowns Has Changed My Life...2

Giggey Girl Gowns Has Changed My Life...2

When I first started the "Giggey Girl Gowns" Dress Donation Center, I never thought that it would be something big (but man did I hope). Today, I am proud to announce that we have given away 3 dresses! (A pair of shoes and a shawl as well!) Three very deserving girls have come to get dresses from us, and have had a wonderful time with it! As have I! I never thought that I would have so much watching girls try on dresses, but I really did! I don't think I have ever smiled that much in my life!

I also have a VERY HUGE announcement today. When we first started Giggey Girl Gowns, my mom set what I thought was an outrageous goal: collect 100 dresses. I thought that she was crazy, and decided not to share it publicly. Last time I had a news interview, we were at 85 dresses, and I publicly announced our goal for the first time. Today I am more the pround to announce that we reached this goal.
