Saturday, June 22nd
We woke up this morning ready for a busy day of work in Atlanta! We knew today would be an exciting one, after talking extensively with a CASA representative who told us they had ready at the trailer site for us and were arranging external events to be a part of the mobile boutique. When we arrived at the trailer’s location, we saw two large white tents, a table of breakfast food, a makeup station, and many girls and the Atlanta CASA reps eagerly waiting our arrival. There was even an Atlanta news channel there to film the day!
Allyson’s friend Kelsey from the Prudential Awards showed up with the rest of her family to help us throughout the day. Kelsey started a project called Bands4RAINN, which raises money for survivors of sexual assault. Her family recently relocated from Pennsylvania to Atlanta. She had a blast and did a great job helping the girls to find clothes throughout the day. The girls had a lot of fun choosing their items, and we enjoyed working with all of the kind and amazing girls during their shopping appointments!
After packing up the trailer, we headed out to explore the World of Coke in Atlanta. We had so much fun tasting the flavors from all around the world and choosing our favorites. We highly recommend going to the World of Coke, it such was a great experiences.
Overall, It was an absolutely great day. We had a blast working with the Atlanta Fulton County CASA staff and the amazing girls, and had a great road trip to Florida after! We are now looking forward to having another awesome day in Florida tomorrow!
