“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

Princess for A Day Sponsered by A Family for Every Child

Children throughout the country are waiting for loving homes and it is the goal of A Family For Every Child to find forever families for each one of these special children.

This year will be A Family For Every Child's 6th Annual Princess for a Day Event. Our annual gift to Foster Girls throughout Oregon. These well deserving girls ages 2-18 receive a special day full of the royal treatment; getting their hair and makeup done, picking out their ball gown, and finally having a tea party with prince charming.

In 2012 we served over 325 Princesses, because of the generosity of our community and families all over the country. We hope to serve more and more princesses each year and reach out to other communities to help them create their own Princess for a Day Event.

Did you find a Christmas Dress in the Closet that was too small this year?
We will take all your old dress off your hands for our Princess for a Day event. We will take dress donation of all sizes.
Drop off or mail your old dress to
1675 West 11th, Eugene OR 97402

Donation Timeline
We have created a timeline for each month, up until the event, for all the donations. This is so we can collect specific items for different months and anyone who would like to donate will have ideas of what we are in need of. However, we will still be accepting any donations during each month.
Feel free to visit our online Wish List for the list of items we need!

This month is all about the DRESSES!

If there are any dresses sitting in your closet and collecting dust, donate them to us! We will gladly accept princess dresses of all sizes!
Clean out your closet and donate those Holiday Dresses that are to small!
This month will focus on WANDS and TIARAS!
It will be the start of a new year, and the event will be just right around the corner! We will be in need of all the finishing touches to all the dresses we will collect the month before.
One more month to go!

This month will be all about the BLING!
Anything pink and sparkly that the Princesses can wear will be greatly appreciated! Necklaces, bracelets, rings...you name it!

The Princess gets a gown to
take home, a crown and
slippers too. She has her hair
 and nails done, a photo shoot,
and a tea party. The parent, guardian, or foster parent who brings the Princess will also
have lunch as her royal guest!
Foster children are admitted
free. General admission for
other princesses is $50.00. Advanced registration is
required for all girls.
This is a girls only affair. All
girls are welcome to be accompanied by their King
or Queen.
Due to limited space we can
 only accommodate the
Princesses and one adult,
so please leave the extra
princess and wicked
step-sisters home at the

princess 6
