Today I got to photograph 22 beautiful young women as part of an amazing event called: “Operation, Princess Prom”. Volunteers of Crossland Community Church here in Bowling Green prepared for weeks, collected dresses, made flower corsages, volunteered their time and resources to make many young ladies and their families extremely happy.
Helen Keller said: “Alone we can do so little; TOGETHER we can do so much.” Without help* these girls may not have been able to attend prom this year. Without help they wouldn’t have had their hair and make-up done professionally. Without help they couldn’t have hired a photographer to freeze this once in a lifetime moment.
It takes a village to raise a child and a community to make a princess. Even though not all of their pictures will be posted here (confidentiality), I can promise you that each girl walked out as a princess today. And many people (including myself) with a satisfied heart and a big smile.
So dance away ,Cinderella.
*Crossland Community Church serves close to 100 girls this prom season by providing dresses, shoes, restaurant gift cards, make-up and hair services to make this day nothing but wonderful for these young woman in need. So let’s do this again! Be the change you wish to see in this world. Get involved. Volunteer.
“… Love one another, as I have loved you.” (John 15:12)
