Yesterday I received a beautiful comment.
I love your site! I am always checking it to see what idea you have come up with. I am trying to get as many ideas as I can to show my orphan kids in Africa. Some of them are learning to sew and I thought with as many used clothing they have to deal with, what a wonderful way to inspire them! I am hoping to go back probably in December again. Thank you so much for the many ideas you share. I will try to share some of them with the kids at Umoja Children’s Home in Bomet, Africa. Lynn
This comment meant so much to me because, you see, each time, right before I push that publish button, I close my eyes and envision that my post will have a positive impact on someone somewhere. To find out that a fun hobby of mine is actually benefiting someone half way around the world makes this all worthwhile.
And how appropriate as we go into Day Two of Dress For Change Week, where we have committed to help Sheyenne provide dresses for girls so they can receive an education, and in comes Lynn who will be using these ideas to help orphans in Africa. I’m constantly amazed at the wonderful things people do.
It’s nice to know that in some small way what I’m wearing today might help a little girl on the other side of the world. Today I chose to wear Saturday’s refashioned white shirt with my black skirt.
If you’d like to see how this was made, check out this tutorial:
Thanks to everyone who is participating in Dress For Change Week and
here’s to making our world a better place one refashion at a time. 🙂
