Free for­mal wear? How Fairy God­mother works

The Queensland Times - - NEWS -

THE Fairy God­mother Project is all about gift­ing con­fi­dence and self worth to young peo­ple, via the do­na­tion of a for­mal dress or suit and ac­ces­sories.

By do­nat­ing to the cause you’re lit­er­ally grant­ing a beau­ti­ful Cin­derella (or Cin­der­fella) the op­por­tu­nity to ful­fil a dream and you be­come his or her fairy god­mother.

The dresses, suits and ac­ces­sories are pro­vided free of charge to any­one in need, any­one strug­gling to af­ford their for­mal. If the fam­ily can af­ford a do­na­tion, that’s

cer­tainly ap­pre­ci­ated, but it’s not a re­quire­ment. It’s a sys­tem based on hon­esty, on in­tegrity. If you don’t need the help, please don’t ac­cept it.

Note proof of school ID is re­quired so only year 12 stu­dents from the lo­cal Ip­swich area are sup­ported.

If you’d like to do­nate a dress, shoes, hand­bags, ac­ces­sories or a suit, please mes­sage the Face­book page or drop your do­na­tion to Ip­swich Dry Clean­ers in Brisbane Street.

If you’d like to be the re­cip­i­ent of a dress or suit, please mes­sage and make

con­tact so a time for a beau­ti­ful dress fit­ting can be ar­ranged.

If you have a dress or suit that needs dry clean­ing, ei­ther be­fore you do­nate it (for Fairy God­moth­ers) or af­ter you wear it (for Cin­derel­las and Cin­der­fel­las) please drop it at Ip­swich Dry Clean­ers and men­tion that you’re a part of the project. You will re­ceive a dis­count on dry clean­ing.

Get in touch via The Fairy God­mother Project Face­book Page or call 0477 909 459.

Only Ip­swich year 12 stu­dents are el­i­gi­ble.
