If this isn’t an innovative and generous idea, I don’t know what is! A precious soul has decided to use her blessings to bless others. Celeste and her husband Jason Gallagher, have arranged to sell gourmet cookies in their cafe, The Spotted Rooster Cafe, in New Jersey and donate the profit to help with shipping costs of the beautiful little dresses that you are all sewing. Some SEW. Some GO, and some donate cookie profits! This is one more amazing way that we all work together to help the little girls of Central Africa. Thank you all for your generosity and your willing spirits. Together, we can and DO make a difference!Another really cute idea was from a talented seamstress who makes pillow case dolls out of pillow cases. She sells them for $35 and sends the check directly to Little Dresses for Africa. I am constantly blown away by everyone’s dedication to these children. So many people joining together to help others. I am convinced that this world is made up of wonderful people and I have met a TON of them through Little Dresses for Africa. If you are interested in one of these little dolls, let me know through this website and I’ll put you in touch with Alice Bailey. Thank you, Alice!
We have some Little Dresses for Africa T-shirts for those that want to spread the word. It’s a great way to advertise what we’re doing and get a conversation going. We sold these at the recent Fund Raiser for a donation of $10.00. If you’re interested you can send me a note and a check made out to Little Dresses for Africa for $10.00 to cover the costs of the shirts and I’ll cover the shipping as a thank you for your help. The shirts are short sleeved cotton in black with the logo in white lettering. I have sizes medium, large and extra-large. I have a few children’s mediums in white. We also have a very nice hard back book called “The Tall Black Woman and the Hawk” for a donation of $15. It is a folk story about love for all ages and would make a nice holiday gift. Proceeds go to LDFA of course! I’ll get a good picture up here soon! You can also buy these through paypal and just let me know what the donation is for. Thanks again for your help! Rachel
