Sandy Lake Academy (Bedford) was a hustle of activity Sunday with over 50 volunteers sewing dresses for girls around the world, particularly those in third world countries.
Jenna Borg, a representative from the Canadian Dress A Girl Around the World, flew in from Ontario to support this project and to ramp the sewing party into high gear. Jenna shared how easy it is to positively impact girls around the world by simply creating these life-changing dresses out of pillowcases. More than 200 pillowcases were donated for this project.
Dress a Girl Around the World is a Campaign under Hope 4 Women, bringing dignity to women around the world since 2006. They dream of a world in which every girl has at least one dress, wanting girls to know that they are worthy of love and respect.
