Let’s don’t let Black Friday and Cyber Monday get all the attention! Today is “Giving Day”. This annual day is gaining momentum in the Humanitarian sector. It’s a day to share your abundance with others. It’s a day to celebrate your blessings. It’s a day to remember people who are less fortunate than you. Share your blessings today. Buy someone a cup of coffee. Pay it forward. Donate on line. Write a check. Follow your heart, whereever it leads you but GIVE today. It’s “Giving Day”. Bless you all for all the gifts you give all year! Love, Rachel
It was seven years ago on Thanksgiving that I first visited the Ntcheu area in Malawi, Africa. My life has never been the same. And since that time, thousands have joined together to change lives here and across the ocean. I am personally grateful for each of your participation in this adventure. I am constantly amazed and humbled by the outpouring of love that is shown to the people of Africa and beyond. The American people are so generous and you have proven that over and over again. Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus. It is my pleasure to serve along side of you! God bless each of you as you bless others! Hoping your day is wonderful! Happy Thanksgiving! Love, Rachel
Giving Day December 3rd
This beautiful day is catching on much like “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” but instead of shopping in the stores or on line, this day is set aside for you to support the less fortunate. Please consider celebrating this day by supporting one of our projects for 2014 through Little Dresses for Africa. We are excited to begin the second set of classrooms at the Nan Ray School of Learning. We have secured a field and are hoping we can afford to clear it and set up a soccer area for our students. We have already raised $950 of the $3500 needed for another well. And of course our constant and greatest challenge is our every day cost of shipping thousands and thousands of little dresses all over the world. Honor your loved one with a donation by clicking on “Giving Day” December 3, 2013. Thanks and love, Rachel
Hey, Little Dresses for Africa Friends, Family and Supporters! I really want to put something in front of you that I believe in with all my heart. Please go to http://www.crosscourse.org/ and get involved. This amazing event is sponsored by an incredibly involved supporter whom I believe in with all I’ve got (ok…he’s my son, but that’s not the point) Michael Beau O’Neill will be putting on this insanely fun event that is worth coming to Michigan for if you’re not already in the area. If you are interested in participating or volunteering, there is plenty to do. He plans to make enough money to send a container full of supplies to the Nan Ray School of Learning and thousands and thousands of YOUR dresses and shorts. You know I say it all the time but regardless of how adorable your dresses are, our job is not complete until they are on the backs of the children. Get involved in this. Run it. Volunteer for it. Register now and don’t forget to go to the page and “like” it. Not just this comment, but the page. Thank you awesome volunteers. If you get behind this, we’ll get a container no problem. You are the best and most committed volunteers on facebook. I love you! Thanks, Rachel
By the way, the incredible Metro Alive Band will be playing a concert which is included in the event and it’s worth the price of registration! Please join us! Please go to www.crosscourse.org and get involved!
I never tire of seeing the amazing dresses come in. Just in the last few days, we have received dresses from all over the world. Please be encouraged. We will not run out of kids that need your beautiful dresses and britches. Without naming them all to list a few: Missouri, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconcin, Australia, New Zealand, Texas, Washington, Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma and even Singapore! …and it goes on and on. That’s just in the last few days! Amazing! Can you imagine anything that brings people together like this in a common goal? Thank you so much! I am so humbled by the outpouring of love and support.
And you checks are at work, too. We are so excited to be able to be part of a container going by sea to Nigeria. The dresses go out every week with mission teams to get to the children that need them most. We are happy to be sending a large shipment to Nigeria in care of Pastor Chuks Ezewuzie, the President of Jireh Media Ministries International, Inc and the Assistant Pastor of the Christian Assembly. Pastor Chuks works with the disabled in Africa to offer relief. Pictures will follow as soon as possile, but know that your dresses will go to a segment of the African society that is quite often overlooked and will bring hope. Thank you for your help!
I was honored to speak on Sunday morning for an extremely hospitable group in Detroit, MI at the Conant Avenue United Methodist Church. What an amazing group of people. Also, another amazing experience to share our story with First Baptist in Wyandotte on Saturday at a fun filled reception and fashion show. Mike and I also enjoyed a weekend at the W. Middlesex, Pennsylvania Presbyterian Church. It’s such a great opportunity to get to see all of you and thank you personally for your support. Thank you all for all the support! You are making it happen with every little dress and every dollar you send.
