Giving Tuesday 2023 - Be a Fashion Fairy and Donate a Dress!

This Giving Tuesday, we are asking our awesome supporters to be a Fashion Fairy and donate the cost of an outfit! On average, it costs around $90 to pull together a whole outfit for prom - not including shoes, nails, or hair up-dos! We stock our closet with dress and accessory donations from the community, but we often have to purchase some items ourselves to ensure that all students who come through our doors are able to find a dress, handbag, jewelry, and wrap that matches and makes them shine!

All donations this Giving Tuesday will go towards our general operating costs, such as purchasing dresses in hard-to-find sizes, jewelry, wraps, and handbags.

We thank you so much for supporting Fairy Goodmothers and the high school youth of Central Ohio!
