Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another.
Thank god for the fairy godmothers of the Cinderella Project. Thank god there are people in the world who will give up their precious, precious time and energy to clean and steam dresses, make calls, vacuum floors, clean bathrooms, schlep dresses, borrow trucks, get splinters, get low blood sugar, get teary eyed, get inspired and welcome girls they’ve never met before with loving arms. And thank god they forget all about how
hard difficult trying emotional draining amazing it is and they come back and do it again the next year.
Meanwhile, everyone else is running around wild, rehanging, cleaning, keeping the line in check, keeping the dressing rooms flowing, and of course, keeping smiles on our faces.
Always, at the end of the day, we pat each other on the back and congratulate ourselves on another job well done. Volunteers, we salute you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
