New Project : Quilts for the Elderly

Project: Quilts for the elderly. 
Today I am opening a new project for the elderly. I am hoping to collect and raise 50 new quilts to be given to elderlies staying at retirement homes who cannot afford to provide blankets. This project will remain open until I have collected the 50 quilts. Anyone who wants to donate a quilt, please send a message to for postal details.

Dress A Girl Australia Exhibit

The 'Dress A Girl Australia' campaign to provide dresses to disadvantaged children around the world is being featured in an exhibit organized by the Sydney Catholic Organization at Macquarie University from Oct 10-14 to commemorate the Pope's Jubilee Year of Mercy which started last Dec 8,2015 and will end on Nov 20,2016. The campaign of providing new dresses to disadvantaged kids is being featured as a great example of 'clothing the naked' which is one of the corporal works of mercy to celebrate the Jubilee Year of Mercy. I have sent a couple of dresses and a boys' matching t-shirt/pair of shorts as a sample of how we clothe those who are in need. If you live around Macquarie University at North Ryde, Sydney, please drop by and visit the section which displays Dress A Girl Australia's campaign. Thank you.

Dress Distribution #105 - Sponsored Dresses and Quilts for Pakistan

Two nights ago I had a chat with a schoolteacher from Pakistan who requested if I could send some dresses for her to distribute to needy children in her area. Since I havent had any distributions yet made to her country and have no time to start a collection as I am going away this weekend (and wont be back till end of August) I decided to sponsor these 10 dresses and send to her before I leave for overseas on Saturday. 
Here are the ten dresses I sent today which included four t-shirts from my t-shirt collection to be worn under the dresses to cover the girls' shoulders -
Also I have decided to include two quilts donated two years ago from individual donors I can no longer identify for her to give to two kids who needs blankets. 
And below is a copy of the postage docket -
Proceeds from my sponsorship of these ten dresses will be added to Project: Food makes a difference #1. This will be my way of celebrating my birthmonth next month by making a difference to the lives of 12 kids in Pakistan.Thank you to Lubna Ghani for making this special event possible.
