500 Dresses Update and Deadline Reminder




“No one has ever become poor by giving.”

– Anne Frank, The Diary of Anne Frank

With the help of a wonderful high school girls Bible Study group (photos to come at a later date), I was able to get all the stuff for our next shipment ready to go. They tagged dresses, pulled some elastic through shorts and sewed some buttons.  🙂

Now, I’ve got two big cardboard boxes waiting to head to FedEx. We planned to ship just one box this time around, but you guys really came through with the mother-of-the-bride dresses, and they take up quite a bit of space. So two boxes it is.

We are taking donations until March 22, but any new sundress donations will be held for the Uganda shipment or the next Haiti shipment.

Our first priority is to pack the mother-of-the-bride dresses, flower girl dresses and sewing supplies so if I receive any of those, I’ll squeeze them in.

Here’s the current tally:

Mother of the Bride/Formal Dresses – 17

Flowergirl Dresses – 7

Sundresses – 61 (A few of these will probably be held back for Uganda due to space constraints)

Shorts – 11

(And a bunch of sewing supplies and fabric)
