A teenager who posted pictures of a dress online so she could sell it, had to defend herself against some faceless cyber-bullies calling her ugly and fat. But the Tennessee Facebook community came to her defense, not only by posting sweet compliments on her beauty, but donating thousands of dollars for a new spring dress for her senior prom.
In January, in the town of White House, Kristen Layne decided to try to sell last year’s prom dress online to help raise money for a new dress to wear this year at the school’s annual prom.
After posting the pictures on “For Sale in Sumner County, TN”, two men started making ugly comments about her weight and looks.
Soon, others began defending her, writing positive comments, and donating money to her online dress fund.
As of today, $6,375 has been donated and the size 26 purple dress was donated, too. Kristen paid it forward to a friend in need of a prom attire.
She also bought a new gown for another girlfriend, saying, “She didn’t have the money to buy the one of her dreams so, I went and bought it for her… Thank you guys. I helped 2 young ladies have a wonderful prom. ”
