I've been volunteering for this organization since the very beginning... When mrs Darlene richards told me about her non profit I was amazed that there were people out there trying to bring the unity back into our society.. Giving all brides a chance to make there dreams come true. I have praticipated in two of every girls dream run way shows. I was also able to wear some of every girls dreams wedding gowns, on fox 2 and 7 news. She has done so much and his given so much to this non profit, she deserves the most needed acknowledgement.

Thanks so very much to the Every Girls Dream Family! When we first nominated our friend/co-worker we truly had no idea what to expect! From first contact the EGD family, was personable, friendly, and eager to work with us. The joy that they brought to our friend Kate can't be expressed in words, she fells so very special to have been selected. Thank you for all you do, fulfilling dreams is not always easy...but you all do it with grace. We humbly thank you!

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.

The faces of the brides we've helped. I cant number the times a bride has seen her reflection in the mirror or a mother has looked at her daughter and their eyes misted with tears because they found the ONE dress that makes them a bride.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would ask for more volunteers! Some of the events can get pretty big and to have more hands to help with fittings or modeling, or dress handling would be great!

Hello, I am a model/volunteer of every girls dream and I have watched it develop, Watch women smile, willing to give and helping the other. I have also watched the look of the one recieving there beautiful gown with tears of happiness and hope. Countless of times I have watched women dreams come true. I am very touched with this organization and will volunteer here always. This organization is not only helping the bide to be but the entire family. We all get stressed when getting married but, when the bride is happy we all are happy and thats the organization I will love to be.

The amount of effort the team has put forth, to make every bride they recieve dreams come true has been AMAZING, and brings tears to your eyes. This is a great non- profit, and Im am hoping that one day all dreams of everygirlsdream will be met!

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.

recieving a beautiful free wedding gown for my special day. They were very helpful and wanted me to try on as many as I could fit until I felt beautiful.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them to get the word out that they are there to give low income brides like myself free beautiful wedding gowns. They need more exposure to find them. I was hard for me to find them on the internet, in fact, someone else referred me. They need more tv exposure and more internet exposure.
