Spoiler: There weren’t really any white dresses or blue sashes. But there were beautiful dresses all the same, and even more beautiful girls. And these are a few of our favorite people wearing their favorite things!
Some friends of ours in town wrote us last week to ask if we’d be interested in having 20 dresses donated to girls in our community. They had a friend of theirs–a 9-year-old Iraqi–who wanted to give other girls her age the opportunity to wear beautiful dresses like she can. She raised funds to pay for a local Burmese seamstress, who works with our friends at Global Alms, to make all twenty dresses and give them out in a local community.
And we are that community! We were so honored to have them ask.
We always love a chance to bless these friends. This in particular was just such a great opportunity. We live in a neighborhood where things are seemingly always breaking: families, houses, clothes, opportunities. It feels like everything is coming apart at the seams.
To bring in bright colors, beautiful ribbons, gathered fabric, and flowing skirts full of innocence and beauty; handmade with love–this is an opportunity not to be missed!
We are so thankful for friends around us in Mae Sot partnering with us in the community. We have a family that comes to our house weekly to play with the kids; another family blessed our community with their tithe this month. We had computers donated last month, and now dresses!
