A friend, Chaos, has adopted a beautiful girl from Ethiopia and will get to bring her home in the next few months. You can follow her story here. During the process, Chaos partnered with Children's Hope Chest to help gather sponsors for children in Kechene, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Chaos met these beautiful children on her visit to Kechene.
In the summer of 2010, I made dresses for Little Dresses for Africa from Pillowcases. You can see them here.
Now, I want to send dresses back to Kechene when Chaos returns for her daughter in the next few months. I have two sets of instructions. One to make a dress from a pillowcase and one to make a dress from a t-shirt and material for a skirt. Both are very simple. There are 65 girls. Would you consider helping? We need people to sew dresses, but we also need supplies. If you don't sew, could you provide pillowcases, ribbon, lace, bias tape, t-shirts or a yard or two of material (or a monetary donation to purchase supplies)?
Look at these beautiful faces!
And, if your heart is for the boys, there are approximately the same number of boys that would be blessed to have a new shirt if you would like to buy a shirt or give a donation to purchase some.
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’
“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’ " Matthew 25:34-40 NLT
AND you ALL can pray for this effort and for these beautiful children!
