Who’d have thought when we started sewing a few years ago that we would end up sending 1000 items to Haiti! I didn’t. (Technically, the post title is misleading because the shorts are included in the count total, but 1000 Dresses sounds more exciting than 1000 Clothing Items.)
I don’t know what God has down the road for us, but he keeps providing supplies, money for shipping and women willing to sew and donate dresses. And the need in Haiti is ever so great, as it has been named poorest country in the world.
We surpassed the 1000 mark by 3 items with this shipment. Here’s the breakdown:
Formal Gowns – 36
Sundresses – 70
Shorts – 22
In honor of hitting 1000, I am going to give a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Women away. They published one of my stories in the book and gave me a few free copies, so I’m going to pass a copy along to one of you. (I’m also giving a copy away at 26 Letters.)
Just leave a comment here or on facebook and I’ll put your name in the running. (And please share about our ministry with you friends. The more people who know about it and take part, the more we can do.) I’ll draw a winner a week from today.
