It has come to my attention that there are a few who are questioning where the money from the Dress Sponsorship program are going. Dress A Girl Australia is an open book. I even post some of my personal feelings in my blog. Every cent that I spend and/or receive from a few generous donors including the Dress Sponsorship program is well documented. Every income and expense that goes in and out of this charity work is well documented and fully supported. All dress sponsorships are being sold under my ABN (Soft Treasures) and every receipt issued for every sponsorship is being tracked and monitored and recorded for tax purposes. All items that I sell from my online shops are being issued receipts for tax purposes. I cannot accept donations even for dresses to help with the sponsorship as I am not authorized to accept donations. I still have to record the income that it represents and pay tax if I have to making things more complicated. If turning down offers of help in sponsorship is offending anyone, there is nothing I can do but I want to make things as simple as possible. Anyone who has any doubts or would like to discuss this further, please send an email to email@example.com. 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.
