LITTLE DRESSES FOR HAITI
"Dress a Girl Around the World" is a program that provides simple dresses for girls in the U.S. and other countries. Having a nice dress provides these young girls with dignity and a sense of pride. It also lets predatory adults know that these girls are well cared for by others and keeps them out of harm's way and the human trafficking rings. The simple dresses are easy to sew and inexpensive since they are made out of pillowcases or T-shirts.
In May 2014, we partnered with Christ the King Catholic Church in Pleasant Hill for this mission. Like our 2013 partner, Granite Springs Church in Lincoln, CA, Christ the King collects dresses for girls and shorts for boys from several churches of various denominations and delivers the clothing through missionaries traveling to areas of need throughout the world. Currently, they have more requests than they can fill, including a mission to North Korea and one to Nicaragua. If you have a spare hour, you can make a dress!
