I went to Africa almost a year ago, I went to a village in Uganda that my church sponsors.  I met so many children that wore nothing but rags...I mean they were shirts and shorts, but you wouldn't recognize them and that was ALL they had.  We brought a few shirts and shorts and they were SO PROUD to have new clothes.   I wish I could sew, something like this pulls at my heart and makes me want to learn...

What you are doing is amazing, I hope that you never let the negativity of those around you discourage you from doing good in this world!

I am trying to do this with a twist. I haven't started yet but I am in the planning stage.

I know several people that want to learn to sew. I don't know how much it costs where you live but here, you can find some who will teach you from their home for $20 per hour plus materials. I want to get classes started, my teaching how to make the dresses is free. All they need to do is bring the fabric for 2 dresses. They will make a dress to donate and leave the fabric for someone to learn to sew that can not afford the materials (or I will make it into a dress).

Along with teaching the basics of sewing, I figure each person I teach will create 3 dresses, the one I make, the one the student will make and the extra one.

Do not let those who do not have a giving heart bother you. I would take it as a compliment, as they see the good you are doing. What you are doing is wonderful and will be greatly appreciated. This world is blessed by having you in it.

By the way I hope you are at least being civil to the homeless. Men from  our church went to Nashville as homeless men, they went with nothing and had to beg to eat.  I don't think anyone from our church will ever be the same after hearing their testimonies, I know I won't. Here is the link to the The Homeless Experience  www.sermonaudio.com

I just checked out the link -- it doesn't take you directly to the sermon. But it you search for Pastor Locke - it will bring it up.

Just as I am -  thats a great idea Smiley  If I could I would take the class, I'm not completely new to sewing but extra guidance wouldn't be turned away.

Wow! Your efforts are so amazing ^.^
You are such a great person, please ignore those kids at school, they have no idea. What will matter is when school is over and you can say all the great things that you have done ALREADY!
Well done, you are a great role model to other people your age...and older!

That's awesome! I've been trying to just raise money for clean water in Africa, but this has such a good impact and will make all the little girls have such HUGE SMILES on their faces!  Grin Wish I could see that! God Bless!
