Have you heard about Project Yesu?
I learned about this awesome project from my bloggy friend Amy over at One Artsy Mama and it sounds so amazing! Last March, a young lady named Mallory started Project Yesu in the hopes of helping to provide food, medicine, and education for children in Uganda. Last year, Mallory and her team were able to collect 450 lbs of supplies and travel to Uganda to deliver them to the people.
This June they are traveling to Uganda again. This time, they have a goal to take as many pillowcase dresses as they can collect to the poverty-stricken young girls. Want to help? You can make a pillowcase dress in any size, colors, or fabric you want. I even think a little crochet would be nice 🙂
Never made one before? Me neither! Luckily, One Artsy Mama has some links to tutorials for making the dresses. She even has a link to a “no sew” version! The deadline to send your dress is May 31 and the details for shipping can be found here.
