Do something big and spectacular today!

"Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself"
                             ~Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
There is a reason we do volunteer work or bring flowers to a friend in the hospital. It makes us happy. Being kind and considerate to others actually benefits us more than the people we are helping. Is there something you can do to delight another person today? It does not have to be big or spectacular. Sponsoring a dress may not be spectacular for us who gives but big and means a lot to a less fortunate kid. All you have to do is click on the link below -

3 Sponsored and 1 added to my Dress Sponsorship Program

Not wanting to waste my time where I was motivated to sew, I made 4 dresses this morning.
Three of the dresses I personally sponsored so I can buy school supplies for a parcel I am sending in June and one dress has been added to my Dress Sponsorship Program to help raise funds for postage and cost of distributing dresses. 
These are the 3 dresses that I sponsored which I am allocating to Project Uganda(Dress Distribution #103 - 06/2016) for sponsored dresses only-
and this is the dress that I added to my Dress Sponsorship Program -
