Promposals, or the act of asking a person to prom in a dramatic way, are all the rage in the months leading up to the dance. At least on the Internet.
But one promposal, in particular, caught our eye. Last Tuesday, Luis Velasquez, a junior at Natalia High School in Texas, asked his classmate Tiffany Gay to prom. With her favorite Bruno Mars song playing and letters that spelled out "P-R-O-M?" he asked her to accompany him to the dance. In a video shot by his mom, Jessica Velasquez, we see him surprise her outside, surrounded by a group of peers, and lead her to the words.
She started bawling immediately. Then, she said "yes."
"There's no difference between me and her. Huge heart. We're both human and we both have hearts," Luis told the station.
Tiffany's grandmother said that Tiffany was hoping a boy would ask her.
The family has since set up a GoFundMe page for Tiffany to make sure she has the best prom ever. Between the dress, dance tickets and flowers, it can get expensive.
In four days, they have surpassed their $1,000 goal. As of April 20, Tiffany's
fund raised about $7,600.
