SponsorMyProm (SMP) was created to give family and friends an easy, secure and fun way to help their special student enjoy a memorable high school experience.
The idea of SMP was born when I offered to help my God Daughter and her single mom purchase her prom dress and accessories. To my surprise, I quickly realized that prom is no longer a semi-formal event held in the high school gym with popcorn, punch and embarrassing arrivals in mom’s minivan. A typical prom today runs the average student $800 to $1000 and a typical senior year runs average cost of $4000 when factoring additional senior activities and graduation. Through this website, it is my hope that every student, regardless of their family’s financial situation or status, is able to enjoy High School with as little stress as possible.
The initial “page” set up will be created by the student. Here they can post a picture and a little bio about themselves and what they wish to accomplish during their time in High School. When this page is completed they will then be able to share it to their social media accounts, where they can send it out to their family and friends.
On the Donate page, family and friends can donate to the students account, as a showing of encouragement, birthday surprise, holiday gift or just because. A limit of $4000 has been set on each student’s account. The money donated will automatically go to a Parent or Guardians PayPay account, (parents/guardian MUST set up a PayPal account) for it to be secured until it is time for the student to use it.
SponsorMyProm wishes you much success, happiness and growth through this journey. I thank you for being a part of the SMP family and look forward to hearing about many memorable moments during this very special time.
