RHOTD: Ashley Yong

Ashley Yong already knew her father wasn’t going to pay for prom, so she started saving money. But when it finally came time to prepare for prom night, the high school student didn’t spend the money she saved on the perfect dress or even a prom ticket. Instead, she used it to make a much longer lasting impact.

The 17-year-old from Darien, said, “I ditched my senior prom to help the homeless of Chicago using money I was planning on spending on Prom. ”  She spent the money she saved for the dance on items like socks, toothbrushes and food and packed them into 20 boxes. Then, she personally delivered them.
