My name is Sasha ***** and I am 16 years old. I sent 50 dresses to you last year. This year i am hoping to get 100 made. We are still working on them. I am sending this check for $25 to you because I was nominated for an award this year for my work with your ”Little Dresses for Africa” organization. I got runner up and was awarded this $25. I had them make it out to you. I wanted it to go to help. I hope to send you more dresses in a couple of months.
My mom, Betty Tiffany, and I introduced the mission project “Little Dresses for Africa” at our church in Corfu, NY. It really caught my mom’s and my interest so we continued to make the dresses with a goal of making 1000 dresses. I am including an article on our church, mom’s picture with the dresses and with her friend who is now also making the dresses. Mom is 93 years olf and this summer she and I will be going to Zimbabwe to deliver these dresses to an orphanage. I know you must hear from many, many hundreds of people but I thought you may be interested in Mom’s story. She is an exceptional woman and leader in our church and continues to make the dresses with great gusto and enthusiasm. Thank you for all you do with this mission project and we are thrilled that we can change the lives of young girls and women one dress at a time. ..Kate (and Betty) Corfu, New York

Alverno College is a four year Catholic liberal arts college for women, founded by the School Sisters of St. Francis. Our curriculum fosters leadership and values within the community and the world….. As part of our celebration and as a way to incorporate service into our community we dedicated our time to creating dresses for the LDFA organization. We set a goal of sewing 125 dresses to mark the 125th college anniversary. We you can see, we surpassed our goal. We value what your organization is doing to make the lives better for women and girls….Mary R, Milwaukee, WI
With great pride, the Middle School girls (6th-8th grades) of First Baptist Academy in Dallas, Texas are sending to you 42 Little Dresses which they made during our Interim Term, which is a week in which students do something for missions. Most of our girls had never sat down in front of a sewing machine before and most were very apprehensive about attempting to make a dress. When they were done, they and our staff were very proud of their efforts…. Thank you for this fabuous mission. We are grateful for the opportunity to help… Elaine, Dallas, Texas

We continue to be grateful for our amazing partnership with Sewing With Nancy. Beautiful dresses continue to flow in as a result of our interview with Nancy in Nancy’s Corner on her show. The Snippet below came from one of her viewers:
The Maury County TN 4-H Pattern Piece 2 project group conducted a community service worshop on Feb 18, 2013. These young ladies decided to make “Little Dresses for Africa” their service project for tis year and set out to make pillow case dresses for children in need.

When I saw your segment on “Sewing With Nancy” I thought, “Gosh! What a wonderful way to use up some of my fabric stash I inherited from my grandmother and mother in law.” …Thank you for the inspiration and all you do for the children

These little dresses wer made with love by members of the United methodist Women of First United Methodist Church in Wasahachie, TX. They were blessed in a special service with the hopes that those who wear them will be blessed.
These dresses were made by the local chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma International, Beta Phi, Located in East Tennessee. This organization is made up of women educators. We heard about your project last summer at a state meeting. Another chapter presented a workshop on how to make pillowcase dresses and passed along their pattern, tips and enthusiasm for Little Dresses for Africa. Thank you for letting us be part of this project. I will be sending a check to your organization to help with the cost of shipping.
Beta Phi Chapter, Tennessee
Thank you for giving my Mom (Dortha) a reason to sew. She is 93, and her eyesight is getting very bad; however she does a great job with the dresses she makes, and we are getting ready to mail her 2nd batch of dresses and shorts. She takes great pride in her work, and the dresses and shorts she makes are made with so much love and care. I know the children will enjoy them.
