~ George Eliot
this is a nativity set i made in 2009 which is made of fabric and i only take it out from its box every year at christmas time and for the next 16 days only it is on display at my house so am also displaying it on this page to celebrate and share the spirit of Christmas.
I know you can do a lot with digital cards. You can put sounds to it and make it more attractive and fun to read and/or to watch. But being me who loves handmades I still prefer the old and traditional cards to make my Christmas greeting more personal and special. And this is why I have this set of special Christmas cards made for my charity work. Proceeds from these cards I saved up and use to pay for the cost of sustaining my charity work which is self-funded. I use the funds to pay for the cost of distributing dresses to different locations for the new year for I believe there are disadvantaged kids who deserve to own a new dress. Please help me make a difference to the lives of these disadvantaged kids by purchasing any of these christmas cards to send to family and special people in your lives.
1) a fabric dress adhered to the card that represents what my charity work is all about
2) a donation card for any charity organization on behalf of someone
3) a christmas message of happiness and hope to anyone in your list
4) a christmas tree shaped by the words of Dress A Girl Australia's goal to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged kids.
Each card comes with a matching white envelope for easy gift giving. There is a blank inside panel for your personal message. Click on each of the images above for more details. You can buy a single card or in packs of 10 or in any number you want. Prices of cards are inclusive of postage costs. Check them out.

Everyone may not be aware that I founded my own charity work called Dress A Girl Australia where I provide handmade dresses to disadvantaged kids anywhere in the world. In order to help anyone to help make a difference I created the Dress Sponsorship program for those who do not know how to sew or do not have the time to sew but wants to make a difference in this world. Proceeds from dress sponsorships help me pay for the cost of distributing dresses as I do not have any sponsors, major or minor to help me sustain my charity work. It is self-funded.
For this year (Sep 1-Dec 31, 2017), I have decided to donate proceeds from my Dress Sponsorship program to the Christina Noble Children's Foundation Australia to help them raise money to fund their Clean Water Tank for Vietnam project. Sponsored dresses will be included in my 2017 Christmas distribution. You have quite a selection of clothes to sponsor for as low as $10.00 per dress. All you have to do is click on the link below -

Just a reminder to everyone and I do hope you all understand that the P.O. Box number I used to have is no longer open. No one and nobody should be sending anything at all to this P.O. Box number. As I have mentioned several times before I will not be responsible for anything or any contributions sent to this box. I know you want to make a difference and I am trying my best to help everyone but some people are not helping at all. I think everyone's understanding is not too much to ask. Thank you.
Before anything else, let me greet everyone with a Happy New Year!
