These statements from the DAG website also keep my sewing machine humming:
“...girls who live in a society where they have no value—where they are used as slaves—where they are abused and preyed upon and no one considers this to be unspeakable injustice. By providing a new dress you may well be changing a young girl’s destiny. Village pastors tell us that a girl wearing a new dress presents an appearance that she is well cared for and may discourage would-be predators.”
And one last word from Dress A Girl:
I am so thankful that Operation Christmas Child, as well as Dress A Girl, makes it so easy to deliver dresses to little girls around the world.
I have shared step by step, illustrated instructions on making the dresses with a link to the pattern if anyone is interested: Simple Pillow Case Style Dress Instructions.
