4/9/08-Since I won the grant, word has spread to countless amounts of girls, through flyers, articles in several newspapers, e-mails, and word of mouth. A burden was lifted off of these girls' shoulders as they were given a dress, makeup, and accessories for free. However the more important factors were not tangible. These girls were pampered and they had a great day that lifted up their spirits and confidence. Mothers and daughters were drawn closer together. Similarly, the volunteers were touched by giving back to the community and viewed the world through different lenses. Everyone was privileged and honored to be a part of this learning experience.
