Last year I told you about middle school student Mallory Fundora and the Pillowcase Drive that she spearheaded. The drive was a success! Mallory collected and delivered 500 dresses to girls of all ages in Uganda in 2013. Today she is planning her third trip to Uganda scheduled for June 2014. She is again collecting pillowcase dresses. With her parents’ help and support, Mallory founded Project Yesu with the goal of helping kids in Africa. She has partnered with three other organizations to provide goods and services to kids in Uganda. You can read her story here and here and about last year’s results here.
I have a couple of dresses made to send to Mallory following the tutorial I posted last year on how to make a pillowcase dress. Tomorrow I’ll have another tutorial for a quick and easy version for toddlers. Check back!
If you like to join me in this sewing project, finished dresses can be sent by May 31 to: Mallory Fundora, Project Yesu, 1178 Willow Bend Drive, Clarksville, TN 37043
