A tiny farming town in Michigan is rallying around a 16-year-old girl who became humiliated when her high school voted to elevate her to the homecoming court as a joke and then laughed at her in the hallways for having so few friends.
In an inspiring turnaround, Whitney Kropp's embarrassment gained her thousands of new friends.
A campaign was started by an alumni student of the school who is now a mom. She was sick about the bullying prank and started a Facebook page that quickly attracted thousands of compassionate fans donating their support.
Businesses have donated services for her hair, nails, and make up. They have donated her gown, shoes and tiara. Even dinner is "on the house" for her and her escort this Saturday.
