Allyson Ahlstrom, 18, wanted to scrap the idea of struggling teen girls getting only handed-down clothes from the thrift store. She wanted to boost their self esteem by providing two brand-new head-to-toe outfits for any girl in need, so she started Threads for Teens two years ago in Santa Rosa, California.
This year she takes her clothing store on the road bringing hope and pride to girls in need across the country. Can you believe what this young woman has accomplished?
