A girl’s prom dress financed with pennies her grandma had saved up for three years
High schooler Jayden (@luvjaydens) went viral after sharing how her grandma saved up for years to help her with prom.
“My grandma has been saving these pennies since I started high school,” said @luvjadens. “She saved them to buy my prom dress.”
The video has over 15 million views, 3 million likes and many comments showing love for grandma.
“Tell your grandma how much everyone loves her,” said @loaf.of.rocks.
“She’s our grandma now,” replied @pocketfullasunflowers.
In the video, Jayden reveals that her grandmother saved pennies in a 5-gallon water jug and at least three other containers.
Prom can be one of the most expensive occasions in high school. In addition to formal attire, expensive rental cars are not uncommon.
According to Amarra.com — which specializes in prom dresses — a prom dress can cost anywhere from $85 to $700. Jayden’s grandmother clearly foresaw the cost of prom and prepared properly.
The final savings totaled $357. However, they went to a bank that charged 5% for the coin counting machine and left them $340. It is still unknown if she has bought a ball gown yet.
In this video, @luvjaydens said her grandma didn’t even know she only later posted the video on TikTok.
“Apparently you made me famous all of a sudden,” the grandma wrote in a text message to Jayden. “‘There are over a million views on this money exchange girly.'”
Jayden shared the text to give those who complimented in the first video an update on her grandma.
“For everyone in the comments that was really nice to Kim, Kim loves you all.”
