Join us for a Sew-a-Thon to support Dress a Girl Around the World!
Calling all crafters or want-too-be crafters!
Imagine a world where every little girl owned at least one dress! What if that dress was made by you?
Dress a Girl Around the World is a Campaign under Hope 4 Women International (a 501 (c) 3 organization) bringing dignity to women around the world since 2006. Hope 4 Women International is a nondenominational independent Christian organization.
We dream of a world in which every girl has at least one new dress. We want girls to know that they are worthy and respected, and that they are loved by God.”
