Who We Are

A Magical Mission

Fairy Godmothers wishes to allow as many young girls from Secondary 5 from underprivileged backgrounds from the greater Montreal area, to participate in the prom season.

We walk on tiptoes, discreetly, so that our protégés take part in this unforgettable event with dignity and pride, without a label or prejudice.

Our concept is simple: collect prom dresses, evening shoes and chic handbags and give them away, free of charge, to these courageous and resilient girls who, without this help, would not be able to attend this transition into the adult life. In addition, we give these used items a second life, thus demonstrating eco-responsibility.

Magic for all the graduates

Once Upon A Time...

Linda Blouin, teacher for more than 25 years at the Antoine-de-Saint-Exupéry school in Saint-Léonard, oversaw the prom’s organization for 16 years.

Over the years, she noticed that some students expressed their disinterest for this significant event crowning yet 5 years of effort and surpassing oneself.

When the lack of financial means prevents some graduates from participating, she pulls out her magic wand while calling upon her colleagues and her brother to find prom dresses, with the deep desire for these girls to be able to enjoy this long-awaited moment, with a light heart.

It is thanks to Linda’s desire, her supporters and a former student’s will, Geneviève Peel, for wanting to make a difference in the lives of these young women that the Fairy godmothers Project was born, in 2014.

Prom may seem superficial in a lifetime, but I firmly believe that all young people deserve to experience this magical evening where their efforts, as well as their transition into another stage of their journey, are honored.
