APFAD is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization
that collects spectacular gowns worn by celebrities on
the red carpet to awards shows, parties, premieres, and charity events to
distribute to outstanding students from impoverished neighborhoods
who will wear them to senior prom. School principals
from around the country will nominate these young women, unbeknownst
to them, to be chosen as a recipient of a phenomenal dress.
Principals will submit bios, photos, and the transcripts of their prospective students. APFAD will in turn, assign dresses to the students on a
first come, first serve basis.
In addition to providing the girls with
spectacular dresses, A Princess for a Day will send them a special PPAK
and locate a local hairstylist, makeup artist, seamstress,
photographer, and car service to render complimentary services to the student.
The only requirement of the young women
is to enjoy the pampering bestowed upon her, making her
A Princess for a Day.
