DRESS A GIRL AROUND THE WORLD
What Is It?: A program that “delivers dresses & hope to girls in need & at risk around the world,” including within the U.S. The program is run by Hope 4 Women International, a Christian organization based in Arizona.
Help Needed: Make simple cotton sundresses from instructions provided; the dresses are then delivered to needy girls.
Minimum Age to Volunteer: None, but volunteers should be able to sew a simple but high-quality dress.
Make simple cotton sundresses from instructions provided, then deliver the dresses to the Houston contact (see below) or mail them to Dress a Girl’s Arizona headquarters. The dresses are then hand-delivered to needy girls.
“Gather your friends, family, co-workers, church group, etc and have a fun night of sewing once a week, monthly or do a one-time marathon.” The Houston group holds a Sewfest twice a year.
