"Gifting formal dresses to Girls in need"
The Story of Cinderella's Gift
Once upon a time, there was a young woman by the name of Chelsea who wanted to be a valuable contributor to society. As she was a year 12 student at the Heritage Christian School - Port Macquarie, her attention turned to issues relating to her fellow female students...
Things have moved along quite briskly since then, a number of girls have already received dresses and Chelsea’s mother is on the scene, helping out by washing every donated gown. Some of the townsfolk have also joined in to help and some local seamstresses have offered to discount their prices for alterations.
Chelsea was fortunate enough to win the Luminosity Pitch Project award, organised by a group of people to acknowledge young entrepreneurs and assist in furthering their business ideas. Plus, the member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams, acknowledged Chelsea and her unique enterprise in parliament, praising her for her efforts.
Chelsea’s overall goal for her project is to develop it into a huge not-for-profit organisation, hoping to get many more people on board to help with her mission, and then form other centres in different towns.
Asked what motivates her, Chelsea stated, “I saw a need for girls needing dresses because formal dresses can be so expensive and I didn’t want any girl to not go to her formal because of that”.
