Every Girls Dream, Inc.
October 22, 2011

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 Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

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.

Ways to make it better...

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!
