Our dresses made it across the world and into the hands of these sweet girls.
James 1: 27 – Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
Mom shipped 27 graduation gowns to Haiti. That’s just 3 short of our goal, which is not bad at all! Thank you to everyone who donated. They will be used by the graduating class of the vocational sewing school where Mom and I taught when we were in Haiti last year.
Two people also donated a total of $37 dollars toward shipping having no idea how much that cost would be. The cost to ship the box was $36.12. Just about perfect 🙂
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
In addition to the dresses we sent to India, Mom sent along a donation for other supplies. The money was used to purchase fans (we provided 2 of the fans in the photo) and other needed items for a boys home.
We have an awesome opportunity to love kids all over the world, and it is so fun when we get photos!
We received a message from the missionary who took some of our dresses to India. They made it and are ready to be distributed. Here’s the email we received.
The clothes have reached India. Thank you very much. They are lovely!
I am working on getting them to the orphanages. It may take us a month or two to have someone go there or have the field leader visit Delhi, where the clothes are right now.
Again, appreciate your heart and the hard work.
Thanks again to all of you who help make it possible to send dresses and supplies around the world!
Adorable girls from an Indian orphanage wearing our dresses.
We would love to have some sleeved dresses (size 10 and up is best) for our inventory, and I found some simple tutorials to get you started if you are interested in serving 500 Dresses in this way.
All of the dresses that we ship to India must have sleeves, and we don’t often have a lot of notice before a shipment is to go out. We send our dresses to India via missionary luggage, so we don’t plan shipment dates. The more of you who donate sleeved dresses, the easier it will be for us to fill a suitcase when we are given an opportunity to ship to India.
Thanks for considering helping us out by trying out one of these dress styles!
