BOSTON (CBS) – There’s nothing fancy about kindness, but sometimes, the end result is downright elegant. Two years ago, a local woman was asked to provide one prom dress for one girl at the Perkins School for the Blind. Last year, she donated 13. This year, her vision is making many prom dreams come true.

Stylist Missy McInnis makes this her mission. She founded “Vision of Beauty” a non-profit raising money so every girl going to prom at the Perkins School for the Blind can have a dress.

Some girls are deaf and blind. Others have limited vision, but they don’t need to see the dresses to know what makes them look and feel great.

Missy says, “There’s nothing that touches me more than really, at the end of the day, knowing these girls feel beautiful and special.”

McInnis is hoping a tuxedo company will work with the boys at the school to complete the night. The prom will be held Thursday June 7.
