In a heartwarming post that has gone viral on Facebook, designer Rica Cariño Lopez shares the story of how a girl went to their shop, asking for the prices of the gowns they are renting at Ricahson Gown’s and Suit Collection in Pangasinan. The girl was visibly dismayed after learning of the price of the cheapest gown available for rent at the shop.

The girl studies at Mangatarem National High School, Rica shared. She shyly asked how much down payment was needed for the gown, then whispered to Rica whether she would accept Php30 as payment. Rica was rather speechless over the offer and the girl left.

But the moment kept on playing back in her mind because she feels pity for the young girl who truly wanted to join the prom yet had no money to even rent a gown.

The owner of the nearby shop knows the girl and her parents, Rica said. She asked them about the girl and was deeply touched upon learning what job the girl’s mom does. She didn’t mention what it was but soon called the girl back to the shop.

For the first time, Ricahson Gown’s and Suit Collection sponsors a girl’s dream gown for the JS Prom – and it looks awesome! Instead of just letting her borrow their cheapest gown, Rica decided to let the girl use one of their fanciest gowns.

In one of the comments on the post, Rica revealed that the gown is actually for rent for Php5,000, but they let the girl use it for free. Isn’t that wonderful?
