What does it mean to pay it forward? At every Cinderella Project of Maine giveaway, they ask each girl who receives a dress to pay the favor forward by volunteering or doing something nice for someone else.

They learned about a [...]

With new dresses, shoes and accessories (not to mention hair and makeup) averaging around $400-$500, this is not something that most girls can afford. So what’s their [...]
