08 Apr Something Worth Sharing – The Little Dress
While working on Garment #9, a documentary filmmaker sent me a lovely email about her project featuring the story of this inspirational woman participating in a most worthwhile effort. I’m happy to share it with you. To watch the video please click on the image 🙂
In the twilight of her life, Iowa native Lillian Weber had a remarkable goal: to sew 1,000 dresses for needy little girls in Africa before she turned 100 years old. She’s one prominent volunteer among thousands around the world who are committed to the nonprofit organization “Little Dresses for Africa,” founded by Rachel O’Neill to honor little girls and make them feel worthy. THE LITTLE DRESS follows Lillian and Rachel’s life-affirming mission and the little girl who receives one of Lillian’s lovingly made dresses.
