Words cannot even begin to express the heartfelt gratitude we experienced Monday evening as 10 women joined us in preparation for our Operation Prom Girl (OPG 2015) event on March 28, 2015. These ladies are giving their time, talents and resources to help us with OPG 2015. We often hear that saying about taking a village to raise a child, with our volunteers we are contributing to the life of young girls in the Inland Empire. Our volunteers are ready not just for our event on March 28th but beyond that date. We are not just giving a girl a prom dress, we are going to connect with her and with other resources in our community to provide assistance in many areas. Stay tuned as we progress with our journey!
Its not a surprise when I hear about young girls who are suffering with self esteem/self confidence, eating disorders, and issues of the like. We have become a society that places a very high value on the Hollywood Standard of Beauty. We never even pause to ask ourselves if this standard is even attainable.
Sadly, you can wear the best makeup, clothes, hair, shoes, drive a nice car and live in a posh Southern California home and from the outside look like you have it all together and be broken on the inside. One must stop and ask “why” is it we strive for this unattainable standard?
The truth is once you love who you are from the inside the outside will follow. It’s kinda funny that it does not work the other way around. When your broken inside no amount of makeup, clothes, or money on the outside is going to fix you on the inside.
How do you learn to Love yourself from the inside? It all boils down to total acceptance with who you are, how you were created, your uniqueness, your gifts and talents. We need to spend more time focusing on these things rather than on trying to achieve a Hollywood standard of beauty that is unattainable.
That is our goal with Operation Prom Girl to lead these girls on the path of loving and valuing themselves, recognizing they were created for a special and unique purpose in life.
Operation Prom Girl is looking for donors, volunteers, and local girls who need help with the expenses of attending the prom. All you need to qualify to serve with us is a willing heart!
Brought to you by the up-and-coming Willing❤️Hearts Grassroots Ministry of Wildomar, CA, Operation Prom Girl is an outreach that serves local high school girls to assist them with a ways and means to attend their once in a lifetime prom event. (Willing♥️Hearts also continues to move forth and serve the community in a number of other areas).
Operation Prom Girl, Inland Valley Empire, NEEDS DONATIONS OF DRESSES AND MUCH MORE! We will provide girls who have hardships or special circumstances, a dress, shoes, hair and makeup, and a very special day filled with inspirational fun.
This years’ theme is “Beauty Beyond the Mask” and will place emphasis on loving ourselves for who we are and positive effects we can create for our generation and our family system.
Based in Wildomar, CA, OPG will be held, respectively, at the Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) Post 1508. The date is March 28, at 2pm. This new ministry outreach depends entirely on community love and support, and is on its way to a non-profit status in the future.
