Little Dresses for Africa

:::::Worthy Charity Bulletin:::::

For those who sew (even very basic sewing skills) go check out Little Dresses for Africa. They make little girl dresses for young-ins at a Malawi mission. You don’t have to make the pillowcase style either (which, imho, the African ladies probably would not prefer); you can modest it up. Like, add sleeves and a decent skirt length. Or a pinafore over a simple tshirt dress. So, if you lack little girls in your life (I only have one niece and she is dressed-out to the max), go ahead and sew up some frillies for Little Dresses for Africa.

    We have delivered the dresses to 7 countries in Africa and there have been no problems with the way they are made as far as modesty goes. In the winter, the little girls wear little shirts underneath. Thanks for passing the word on. We’d love to have your help. please feel free to contact me through the webpage. We have collected more than 18,000 dresses from 36 states across the US to 7 countries. Take care and thank you!

    my mother sews every day and would love to sew Little Dresses for Africa.

    1. Is there a pattern?

    2. What is the address we send the dresses?

    She is a professional and wants to do it as soon as possible.

    Thank you. Jim Ellingson

Quotes

"I can't say I don't believe in your God, but I don't believe He meant the world to be as it is." ~Nicholas Higgins. North and South.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
