Austin Fairy Godmother aka Keri's Fairy Godmother Foundation

I was sitting back last night and thought. Wow…I have a lot to write about. I have several new places I have gone too…that need reviews, I have gotten to help a great cause that needs some recognition, and I am going through a new experience in my life that had been hard. So where oh where do I even begin? 

You will see soon a Review for Hemingway’s in Cedar Park, Cirque De Solei, and a few other venues! But first and foremost I have to write about a place that I want to share with other readers and other people here in the Cedar Park Community…The Fairy Godmother Foundation!

So I recently got to give back to my community and my family. It was a great feeling to be giving such a resourceful thing as TIME. We can never get it back and we need to make sure we never waste a minute! It made me realize that giving up a few hours here and there can really make a difference in someone else’s life and may impact them more than we ever will know. This next place I want to tell you about all started with someone posting a wanted ad for a dress for a friend that couldn’t afford to buy her daughter a dress for prom…Now it has swirled into this great organization we know now as “Austin Fairy Godmother” or  via Facebook  “Keri’s Fairy Godmother Foundation” 

Keri Byer placed a wanted ad and didn’t realize that 6 years later she would be called the Fairy Godmother!  Keri received an amazing out pour of generosity from people that donated dresses, jewelry, and shoes to make sure this girl went to prom. Keri found herself driving all over town to pick up all the donations. She could have sent 20 girls to prom by the time she was done collecting everything.  Next thing you know…she is our beloved Fairy Godmother! 

I was very privileged to help this organization do a Fund Raiser that raised more than enough funds to move to a bigger location! 

 Please visit the website to see more info on the foundation and see how you can give back to the community and how you can make a difference by either donating gently used dresses and all of the bling, or even one weekend a month to help keep the Princess Palace clean, and ready for these girls to come and pick out something to turn Into Cinderella for a night!   Facebook; Austin Fairy Godmother Facebook Page
