Princess For A Day 2013!!

I am going to be collecting anything that would make a girl feel like a Princess. I am hoping to get some help from family and friends. Do you have any old prom dress or fancy dresses laying around, dress up your daughter has grown out of? I need it all wands, crowns, shoes and Bling, Bling, Bling!! We want these girls to sparkle and shine on their special day. I will be collecting for the next couple of weeks before for making a road trip down to donate all we can gather. If you want to mail stuff contact me and I will get you my address. Let's give these young ladies a day to remember!! Read on for more details and here is a picture of my princess who loves to be pampered and pretty, what girl doesn't!!

Children throughout the country are waiting for loving homes and it is the goal of A Family For Every Child to find forever families for each one of these special children.

This year will be A Family For Every Child's 6th Annual Princess for a Day Event. Our annual gift to Foster Girls throughout Oregon. These well deserving girls ages 2-18 receive a special day full of the royal treatment; getting their hair and makeup done, picking out their ball gown, and finally having a tea party with prince charming.

In 2012 we served over 325 Princesses, because of the generosity of our community and families all over the country. We hope to serve more and more princesses each year and reach out to other communities to help them create their own Princess for a Day Event.

Did you find a Christmas Dress in the Closet that was too small this year?

We will take all your old dress off your hands for our Princess for a Day event. We will take dress donation of all sizes.

Donation Timeline

We have created a timeline for each month, up until the event, for all the donations. This is so we can collect specific items for different months and anyone who would like to donate will have ideas of what we are in need of. However, we will still be accepting any donations during each month.

This month is all about the DRESSES!

If there are any dresses sitting in your closet and collecting dust, donate them to us! We will gladly accept princess dresses of all sizes!
Clean out your closet and donate those Holiday Dresses that are to small!

This month will focus on WANDS and TIARAS!

It will be the start of a new year, and the event will be just right around the corner! We will be in need of all the finishing touches to all the dresses we will collect the month before.

One more month to go!

This month will be all about the BLING!

Anything pink and sparkly that the Princesses can wear will be greatly appreciated! Necklaces, bracelets, name it!

This is a special occasion where girls (both in foster care and general admission) can come and get "Pampered" and enjoy a Tea Party.

The Princess gets a gown to take home, a crown and slippers too. She has her hair and nails done, a photo shoot, and a tea party. The parent, guardian, or foster parent who brings the Princess will also have lunch as her royal guest!
Foster children are admitted free. General admission for other princesses is $50.00. Advanced registration is required for all girls.

This is a girls only affair. All girls are welcome to be accompanied by their King or Queen.

Hope this will motivate you to clean out those old closets and dress up boxes!!!
