“Ashley Yong knew her dad wasn’t going to pay for prom, so she started saving money. But when it finally came time to prepare for the big night, the high school student didn’t spend the money she saved on the perfect dress or even a prom ticket. Instead, she used it to make a much longer lasting impact. The 17-year-old from Darien, Ill., skipped her senior prom to help homeless people in her community. She spent the money she saved for the dance on items like socks, toothbrushes and food and packed them into 20 boxes. Then, she personally delivered them.” So beautiful.
