With my Mom having such an active role in EGD, its hard not to catch the fever of volunteering along with her. I've done every possible job there could be as a volunteer, from collecting dresses from generous brides to modeling them for photos and fashion shows for EGD dress drives. The work is hard and time consuming but its also rewarding and fun.

Times are tough and a lot of people are having to make tough decisions with regards to their finances. When it comes to feeding your family or having the perfect wedding dress the choice is clear but it is also difficult. Thanks to EGD, women across our community arent being forced to let go of their dream of their perfect wedding. EVERY woman deserves to be beautiful on her wedding day... and EGD makes that possible.

When a woman steps into a wedding gown she transforms. Shes not just a mother or a sister or a daughter anymore... she is a bride... Gods compliment to a man... someones future life mate. I have volunteered with EGD since the very beginning and I can tell you from multiple experiences that nothing makes me feel better or more apart of our community when a bride in need steps in front of the mirror and cries tears of joy at having found her perfect gown.

I was honored to be a part of the Bride of The Year Wedding. As a first time volunteer with the organization, I was very impressed with how well organized everything was. The Bride and Groom were treated to a first class wedding. It was an exciting time for everyone. The team was very professional and proficient. The wedding and reception went off without a hitch. Several guests complimented the team on their professionalism and the overall event. Truly and honor for all who attended.

I was a volunteer for this nonprofit on September 25, 2011 and they had there bride of the year selected. This nonprofit provided her with a fully decorated hall, free photographer, 6 volunteers to serve and sit people. They were so professional and giving that I could not believe that they turned a VFW hall into a beautiful banquet hall. This bride had no clue that they would provide everything for her. You can read her story and the pictures of her wedding is on there website. www.everygirlsdream.org "event page". She will never forget her wedding day due to Every Girls Dream, Inc. stepping in helping her dreams come true.

I was a volunteer for this non-profit when they did there very first runway show at the Michigan International Women Show in Novi Michigan 2011. Very organized with ten models wearing beautiful donated wedding gowns. They also had a male model that wore a donated tuxedo from The Men's Warehouse. I helped the models change into there dresses. Darlene is a very loving and giving person along with her staff. They have hundreds of wedding gowns to give for free to low income brides in need. I have never in my life heard of an organization that would give you a beautiful free wedding gown. I wish that they can get the support they need because this is truly a wonderful organization. It solidifies families and help us as women want to get married. I personally post-poned my wedding because I could not afford a wedding gown for my special day. They helped me to fill and look as beautiful for my special day as any other woman that could afford a wedding gown. Thank You so so much Every Girls Dream.
