Distribution #91/1A - 10/2015 - Project Soibada Timor Leste is officially closed today. If you were intending to donate to this project, mailing them today will not make it to the parcel I am sending on Friday. For everyone's info. Thank you.
With Christmas fast approaching, I am pleased to let everyone know that Project Christmas 2015 opens today. The collection is open for sizes between the ages of 1 to 12 but I do encourage everyone to be more open-minded by donating new handmade dresses between the sizes of 6 to 12 as these are the ages of girls that I believe really needs clothing the most. Since it is Christmas I will not be setting a maximum number of dresses that can be donated but remind everyone that it is quality of dresses that counts the most and not quantity. Guidelines on dress making should be strictly adhered to. You can checkout the guidelines here.
I do not plan to send the parcels for Christmas distribution at the last minute and also there is a cut-off for Christmas parcels that will make it for Christmas delivery with the freight transport that I am dealing with which is the 6th of December so I am setting two cut-off dates.
First cut-off date is Friday, 23rd of October. Dresses that make it to this cut-off will be sent by Sunday, 1st of November.
Second and final cut-off date is Friday, 27th of November. Dresses that did not make it on the first cut-off will be included in this batch and will be sent by Friday, 4th of December.
Please make sure you send your parcels before the due date as this is the Christmas season. Deliveries become very slow. Also, it takes time to sort, pack and organize the sending of these parcels especially because it is Christmas.
Please do not send any dress donations after the second and final cut-off date as those dresses will have nowhere to go.
For those who do not sew or do not have the time to sew, why not try my Dress Sponsorship program. For $10.00, you get to share your Christmas blessings and make a disadvantaged child feel special this Christmas. Check out my Dress Sponsorship programhere. Proceeds from the Dress Sponsorship will be donated to the Pittwater Friends of Soibada, a non-profit organization based in Avalon NSW to help them with their construction projects in Soibada Timor Leste.
All donations must be in my postbox by the cut-off dates specified above. Postal address is Dress A Girl Australia P.O. Box 240 Casula Mall Casula NSW 2170.
Any questions, please send an email to email@example.com. This Christmas project will be the last distribution for the year 2015.
Dress Distribution #91/1A for distribution in October is now open for dress donations. These dresses will be taken to Soibada Timor Leste c-o Tamara Harding, chairperson of the Pittwater Friends of Soibada. I will not be putting a maximum number of dresses to donate. I will leave it to each donor to think and make a decision as to what is the fair number of dresses to donate. This will be the first of many distributions I hope. Sizes should be between 6 to 12 years old and must meet the guidelines on how to make dresses and if possible dresses should have sleeves. The girls in the village need these dresses badly so make it special and long-lasting. All dresses have to be in my postbox by Wednesday, 30th of September to allow me more time to sort, organize and deliver the goodies to Tamara. Any questions on this distribution, please make a comment here or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you,
One Dress a Day Journey in 2013
Sewing for Charity in Sydney
I found this Dress A Girl Around the World campaign while browsing the internet and started to make dresses. Decided to create and establish it here to see if it would be accepted as a community work sometime in Mar 2011. From then on I have been managing the Dress A Girl Around the World campaign here in Australia. It is self-funded and my way of making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged kiddies around the world. I volunteer whatever time I can spare including weekends. I made all the items on this e-Shop to sell (except donated items where identified) to help me keep up with the cost of sending dresses overseas. Please browse over the products I made and if there is anything you like, please buy them. It is going to a very worthy cause. Thank you.
